Real-time scores, updates and highlights of the Suns vs. Bucks in Game 5 of the 2021 NBA Finals

You don’t have to tell Chris Paul. He knew that in order for the Suns to beat the Bucks and win the 2021 NBA championship, he had to come forward.

In Phoenix’s fourth defeat, Paul scored 10 points on 5 of 13 shots and turned the ball over 5 times. The All-Star point guard averaged 2.2 turnovers per game in the regular season and 15 turnovers in the last three games. Paul’s uncharacteristic mistake made some people wonder whether he was dealing with a hand injury, but he denied any concerns about his health.

“This is something I won’t think about carefully,” Paul said in a media interview on Friday when talking about turnover. “Although this may be an anomaly for me, it did happen. I have flipped the ball many times before. At the end of the day, we have to win the game. And I flipped the ball over and did not give us enough shots. .So, I will find a way.”

At the same time, Milwaukee found that it was better to return to Phoenix than when he left. After falling behind 0-2, the Bucks responded with a better overall effort in Game 3 and Game 4, turning the remaining NBA Finals into a three-game two-win series.

“Sometimes when you are behind 0-1 or 0-2, no matter what the situation is, you don’t really care about it,” said Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. “You care about how you can get one, how can you get the second. Then you will build momentum and good things will happen. So, I think we have to owe all the winning habits we have established during the year. Be able to. Knowing that when we lose, we still try to win the game.”

Will Milwaukee win the fifth game for the third consecutive game? Or can Phoenix rebound at home?
