On Wednesday the Suns again play the Bucks at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.

The game will be televised on ABC.

Start time is scheduled for 6 p.m. Arizona time.

Suns are up in the series 2-1 but that will be short lived if they don't play better in Game 4.

After Game 4 on Wednesday the remaining games will be a 1-1-1 format with the Suns holding home court advantage.

I’m glad it’s not 2-3-2 right now. Bucks could be riding that home momentum to three straight.

Yeah. This is why I'm a fan of the 2-2-1-1-1 format.

It better benefits the team with the best regular season record.

I would like to see the Suns double Giannis more before he starts going downhill. Not every single time but more often before he gets into his dribble drive. That killed us him picking up all those fouls. I would like to see the Suns dare the other Bucks to beat us. If the Bucks are having an on night from the three you go back to zone. Monty has to mix it up to slow down Giannis.

Another interesting stat. Suns have lost three out of four Game 3s in the playoffs.

Here is the thing. I don't believe the Suns could have played any worse in this series. Not based on what they have shown all season and playoffs long. If that is the worst we will see them play this series? I still feel very good about this series.

Bridges was just so so bad tonight. The ultimate good at home, bad on the road roleplayer. This is why he can't get paid big bucks. Ayton is a presence in every game and the anchor of the team. Bridges completely dissapears. Every time he touched the ball he would panic and turn it over

Edit: meant to put this in the game 3 thread sry

This will be a super close game that will make all of us want to pull our hair out... and we’ll come away with the W.

Booker has struggled for huge parts of the last 2 rounds. He isn't playing well in the in finals. After 3 games his numbers:

23 of 60 (38%) from the two
9-27 (33%) from the three.

He has made 30 shots and missed 87 in the finals despite having a fantastic GAME 2. He has been so inconsistent. That is our starting shooting guard. I don't know what else to say except Booker has to play better and be more consistent. This has to be the most inconsistent stretch I have seen him play these past two rounds.

We need Book.

Problem is Giannis is a pretty good passer and Middleton/Conaughton will be waiting. Kinda damned if you do/don’t. We pretty much have to outscore them.

Two games in a row playing him straight up with a mixed zone has resulted in historic nights for Giannis. You may not be able to stop him but Monty has to figure out a way to slow him down.
