In Game 4, the referee’s whistle was the only thing that could stop Devin Booker from amounting to a 50-point night. Such was his dominance as every other Phoenix Suns player struggled. Now, after the Milwaukee Bucks equalised the series 2-2, the Suns are in a ‘should win’ situation to fend off their opponents’ swelling confidence.

On Wednesday night, the Deer District had bad weather forcing many Milwaukee fans to reconsider cheering for the Bucks from outside the Fiserv Forum. However, the fans went creative and brought “where the Suns don’t shine” placards with them. Now, it’s the Phoenix crowd’s turn to respond as other fans enjoy the game from their sofa sets.

Where and when to watch Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks Game 5?

Game 5 is a super important game for the Suns because they’d not want the Bucks to score a hat-trick by defeating them at their home. On the other hand, the Bucks, knowing that the Suns have Game 7 home court advantage, would like to win this one and try to close the series in six games.

So with the stakes so high, ABC will broadcast the game at 9:00 PM ET on Saturday i.e. July 17th 2021. Also, for the fans who prefer to catch the match on smaller screens, they will have WatchESPN or ESPN app to their help. But this would require a cable-login subscription.

Other platforms to stream the game would be Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, Sling TV or FuboTV.

Also, for worldwide fans, the game will be available with the NBA League Pass.

What will be the key things to watch?

For one, it will be interesting to see if Chris Paul can overcome his uncharacteristic ordeal with high turnover rate. More than anyone, this series is important for CP3 because this might be his last chance ever to lift an NBA title. 

Then, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who missed out on scoring a 40-point night in Game 4 might want to record the number against a booing crowd.

Plus, this will also be an important night for Jrue Holiday who has been a little low on the offensive end in the series. But the Suns are 35-11 at home this season and it will be a tough nut to crack for the Bucks to beat them in Phoenix.

So with many predictions doing rounds, who do you believe will win Game 5? Help us know in the comments below.
