Once again it was Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo who stole the show to help Milwaukee take victory in Game 5.
“He's an incredible defender, strong hands and got in there and took it. I think most times you just want to pull it out and run the clock,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer. “But Jrue and Giannis in a two-on-one, just to put to put two points on the board. I think just trusting their instincts, trusting them... They’re playing, they’re competing. That’s what we need."
Game 6 looks like it could turn out to be the deciding moment in the 2021 NBA Finals, and with the Bucks winning every numbers game, Antetokounmpo & Co will be keen to maintain the kind of scoring that helped them fight back from 2-0 down.
Then again, the Suns have been great at home. Mikal Bridges has been hit and miss, punching in a 27-point performance in Game 2 before scoring just 11 points in the Suns' two losses, he could light up Game 5 and put Phoenix back in front.
The Suns have never won the NBA title, having lost to Michael Jordan’s Bulls way back in the 1993 NBA Finals. As for the Bucks, they haven't won since the NBA expanded from 12 to 14 teams in 1968, as anyone who watched them lose the 1974 NBA Finals to the Celtics will confirm.

How to avoid Suns vs Bucks blackouts with a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Suns vs Hawks rights holders, you might be hit by a local blackout. Plus, those outside the US won't be able to access certain streaming services when outside their own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
