NBA Finals: Game 6 Preview And OddsPublished July 20, 2021 by Sol FH
The Bucks have a chance to win the NBA Finals tonight at 2:00 GMT in Game 6 against the Suns.
The Milwaukee Bucks are just one win away from winning their first NBA title since 1971 if they can beat the Phoenix Suns tonight at Fiserv Forum. It has been a wild series so far, with the Bucks coming back from a 2-0 deficit, and a huge win in Game 5 in Phoenix.
The Suns are led by a great offense but they are getting rolled over on defense, which now more than ever needs to be at the top of its game in Game 6. The Suns defense is playing well in the Finals, allowing 109.4 points per 100 possessions. But, stopping the Bucks' Big 3 is no easy task.
Milwaukee's stars have really put on a show in Game 5 and 6. Giannis Antetokounmpo has been the dominant force in the series, averaging 32.2 points, 13.0 rebounds, and 5.6 assists per game while shooting 61.2 percent. Khris Middleton is averaging 25.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game and has become a crunch shooter in these Finals.
Finally, Jrue Holiday is producing 27 points and 13 assists. The Bucks shot 58 percent from the floor in Game 5, and in these Finals, they have been at their best when playing at home. Milwaukee is at a near-perfect 9-1 at Fiserv Forum during this playoff run. Coming off of three-straight wins will also be a huge confidence booster.
