Game 6 of the 2021 NBA Finals is finally here. If the Milwaukee Bucks win tonight’s game in Milwaukee then they will win their first NBA title since 1971. The Suns must win their first road game this series if they want to push the Finals to 7 games and keep their season alive.
The Bucks looked great coming off of game 5, they were up by as much as 16 points, however, they did let Phoenix mount a comeback. They managed to seal the game with a big steal by PG Jrue Holiday that was followed by an alley-oop to Giannis Antetokounmpo. If the Bucks continue to get the same defensive and offensive production from Holiday, Antetokounmpo, and G/F Khris Middleton then the Bucks will win the series at home tonight.
After winning the first 2 games of the Finals, the Suns have come up short in the previous 3. Guard Devin Booker has put up 40 points in back-to-back games and the Suns have not been able to capitalize off of his production. To make matters worse, PG Chris Paul has not been playing up to his Hall of Fame-caliber in the Suns 3-straight losses. If Phoenix wants to walk out of Milwaukee with a victory tonight then they must play better as a team offensively.

The sun will set on Phoenix’s chances of winning their first title if they lose tonight. Phoenix’s offense has been overwhelmed by Milwaukee’s defense. Ever since the Bucks switched PG Jrue Holiday on Chris Paul, Paul has been a nonfactor for Phoenix and is looking like Cliff Paul from State Farm over the last few games. If the Suns can’t score 120 or more points tonight then they will lose again and Milwaukee will walk away with their second NBA title in franchise history.
