When asked about the challenge of defending Antetokounmpo in a media interview on Tuesday, Suns star Chris Paul explained that the game plan is simple, but not easy.
“We will continue to work hard to build a wall,” Paul said.
That wall certainly didn’t exist in Game 3, because the two-time NBA MVP effectively scored 41 points during the Bucks’ 120-100 win. Antetokounmpo caused most of the damage inside, scoring 28 points in the paint alone. But he knew that the offense might not be so easy in the fourth game, because Phoenix focused on preventing him from getting to the basket.
“There must be three people ahead of me to prevent me from entering the paint and building that wall, which is a compliment. But yes, I hate it,” Antetokounmpo said on Tuesday. “I won’t lie. I hate it. But after all, you have to find a way to solve it.”
Will Antetokounmpo and the Bucks be in two games or even a series? Or will the Suns lead 3-1?
