Devin Booker scored 31 points, Chris Paul had 23 and the Suns beat the Milwaukee Bucks 118-108 on Thursday night to take a 2-0 series lead. The Suns surged ahead late in the first half, withstood Giannis Antetokounmpo’s all-around effort to bring the Bucks back, and walked off winners again as fans swung orange rally towels all around them.
Antetokounmpo had 42 points and 12 rebounds in his second game back. The Bucks struggled from 3 point range again. Holiday and Middleton both couldn’t buy a bucket. The Bucks are just 8-of-28 from three-point range and the Suns are 19-of-38. That isn’t winning basketball in today’s NBA because the 3 point shot has changed the game. With the win, the Suns own all the momentum as the series now shifts back to Milwaukee for Game 3 at Fiserv Forum.
