I’m not nearly as confident in the Suns as I was before the series began and a lot of that has to do with the way CP3 has looked lately. He’s having issues holding onto the ball. The Suns also aren’t getting consistent play overall outside of anyone but Booker. With that said, the Bucks have lacked a killer instinct all playoffs long. Right when it looks like the Bucks have things figured out, they take the foot off the gas. Also, no team has won four straight after trailing 0-2 in the NBA Finals since the 2006 Miami Heat. I also refuse to believe CP3 is going to let things end like this after being so close to a legacy defining championship. Also, no matter what you think of the Bucks winning, we’re getting 5 free points with a Suns team that’s covered 12 of their last 17 games.
