The two teams from the 2021 NBA Finals will square off once again as the second game of the NBA Sunday slate of action. The Phoenix Suns (51-12) will travel to Fiserv Forum to take on Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks (39-25), but will be doing so without either Chris Paul or Devin Booker.

The focus for the Phoenix Suns is simple; get healthy for the playoffs and try to get wins when possible. The struggles of the Golden State Warriors has reduced the threat the Suns face of moving down in the standings while they wait for Chris Paul to heal.

The team faces particularly unfortunate circumstances with Devin Booker remaining sidelined for at least one more game due to an inconclusive COVID-19 test.

The expectation based on the latest injury report for the Suns is that Devin Booker has a strong chance to return to the lineup on Tuesday when Phoenix takes on the Orlando Magic. Booker’s absence began on Friday when PHX took on the New York Knicks.

In the Suns’ previous outing, Cameron Johnson led the way with a career-high 38 points with nine made triples—including the game-winning bank shot to beat the New York Knicks at the buzzer. The only problem? Even he is going to be sidelined for Phoenix when they take on the Bucks.

It will be important for Mikal Bridges and Deandre Ayton to showcase their potential in this Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks matchup for their team to have a strong chance of pulling off an upset despite their team holding such a length injury report with Devin Booker and Chris Paul out.
