Phoenix Suns Key to Victory in Game 6: Catching a break here and there

Let’s be honest. The Suns need some luck. Every loose ball seemed to bounce Milwaukee’s way especially during their game Saturday night, which made it so hard to build up momentum.

Having Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Holiday, all score over 25 points is unfortunate to say the least. It is impossible to beat the Bucks in that situation, no matter how you look at it.

But it was not just those three who played well, as Connaughton put up 14 points and shot 66.7 percent from the field. The Bucks as a team shot 57.5 percent, their highest mark all postseason. The Suns seriously need to pray that this rate of shot-making will not continue.

Usually, I would blame the defense for this, but the Bucks just seemed to make everything in Game 6 no matter what the Suns threw at them. We know Phoenix can lock down on defense, but you just cannot overcome Milwaukee playing out of their minds. Hopefully a few things can tip their way this time around.
