The two teams from the 2021 NBA Finals will square off once again to begin 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 Eastern Conference playoff race is heading up and the Bucks, who are riding a three-game winning streak entering Sunday’s game, are very much in the mix. Milwaukee ranks third in the standings and have a genuine outlook to potentially finish anywhere from first to even fifth or sixth if injuries were to occur.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has continued to raise his game this season for the Bucks, and particularly as of late as the stretch-run of the season plays out. He is averaging 29.4 points, 11.6 rebounds, and 6.0 assists entering Sunday’s game. If he continues to dominate while leading this Bucks team to wins, there’s a genuine chance his dark-horse MVP candidacy could net him his third time earning the honor.

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.

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.

The Bucks managed to take down the Chicago Bulls their previous outing leading into Sunday’s game using an incredible performance from Giannis Antetokounmpo, who finished the game with 34 points, 16 rebounds, and 5 assists. His star teammates, Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton, each combined for 48 points.
