Giannis Antetokounmpo's Sensational Block, Devin Booker's Insane Fadeaway & Other Milwaukee Bucks vs Phoenix Suns Game 4 NBA Finals Highlights

Wednesday night was supposed to be pivotal in the race to the NBA Championship and the Milwaukee Bucks made the most of it. 

They evened up the series on their home court, denying the Phoenix Suns a chance to take a comfortable lead in the series. 

At 2-2, the trophy could land anywhere. But let's look at how the Bucks made it happen!

Phoenix Suns force an early timeout from Bucks

After his poor outing in the last game, Devin Booker made the first basket of the game with a pullup jumper. In fact, the Suns went on an 8-0 run that made Mike Budenholzer take an early timeout for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Milwaukee Bucks had royalty in the building

Everyone could tell how crucial this game was when the Bucks had legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Roberston, and John McGloklin cheering for them. These are the three members of the 1971 NBA championship for Bucks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo's nasty putback dunk

The first quarter was sloppy for both teams. Milwaukee shot just 35% from the field, but they took advantage of the Suns' turnovers to score. But the highlight of this quarter was Giannis' putback dunk. Yet it ended with a 23-20 score in favour of the Suns.

Greek Freak on the loose

The Suns had taken another 5 point lead with around 8 minutes left in the third. Chris Paul was doing more damage than good because he had more turnovers than points at this time. Of course, Giannis continued to go full throttle.

Pat Connaughton from the deep

Giannis was right to trust him with the ball instead of making a shot on his own. He passed the ball to Pat Connaughton who canned a big triple that put the Bucks one bucket behind the Suns at 95-97.

Khris Middleton's clutch bucket!

The Suns fell flat, literally, as Chris Paul turned the ball over in the most crucial minutes when the game was at 101-99. His slip helped the Bucks get to take a 103-99 lead thanks to Middleton's clutch shot.  After that it was a game of free throws, the Bucks cashed in 6 from the line to finish the game at 109-103.
