Episode 41 of the Valley of the Suns Podcast breaks down the Phoenix Suns’ Giannis problem, points of emphasis for Game 4, reasons not to panic and Marvel’s “Black Widow.”

Welcome, Valley Boyz and Girlz, to another NBA Finals edition of the Valley of the Suns Podcast!

In Episode 41, host Gerald Bourguet covers everything from the Phoenix Suns’ disappointing Game 3 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Hoping to go up 3-0 in the series, the Suns played one of their worst games of the postseason thanks to a myriad of factors, from Devin Booker’s poor shooting night to Deandre Ayton’s foul trouble to the Bucks simply playing with more desperation.

With that being said, Suns fans have no reason to panic just yet, and Bourguet lays out several reasons — obvious and not-so-obvious — why Phoenix is still in great shape in this matchup.

Afterwards, the topic shifts to the Suns’ biggest problem: Giannis Antetokounmpo. After another dominant 40-point performance, can the Greak Freak be stopped? Is there anything Ayton and the rest of the Suns can do to slow him down?

From there, the conversation changes gears to talk about a few other points of emphasis Monty Williams needs to drill home in his team before Game 4. While Giannis is still going to do Giannis things no matter what, these areas of concern are things Phoenix can more actively control as they look to steal a game on the road Wednesday night.

Finally, for our latest G-Rated segment, Marvel’s Black Widow is in the spotlight. How does this latest and long-awaited superhero movie stack up to Marvel’s best?
