The Bucks found themselves in a must-win situation in their third game with the Suns. After Phoenix suffered two disastrous defeats, Milwaukee knew that he could not fall into a 3-0 dilemma, because no team had overcome this gap in the NBA playoff series.
Although they encountered difficulties at the beginning of the NBA Finals, the Bucks are still confident. They have been tested throughout the playoffs, including in the Eastern Conference semifinals, where they rebounded after losing the first two games against the Nets.
“It will be tough. There is a great team,” Bucks forward Chris Middleton said in a media interview on Saturday. “But we have to stay the course. Find out what we did wrong. Find out what we did well and continue to do what we did well and try to extend it. Then limit what we do not do well.”
At the same time, the Suns will not be satisfied with the status quo. Phoenix saw the third game as an excellent opportunity to push Milwaukee to the brink of elimination.
“For us, the most important game of the year is tomorrow. Tomorrow. This is a must-win game for us,” Suns guard Chris Paul said on Saturday. “We must come out with this mentality. Knowing that they are at home, they are more comfortable, and they will be in front of their fans. But we must be us. We must be us, we must be the hungry team, and this is what we are going to do of.”
