The Bucks are in a situation where they must win heading into Game 3 against the Suns. After a couple of tough losses at Phoenix, Milwaukee knows it can’t fall to a 3-0 hole, as no team has overcome that deficit in an NBA playoff series.
Despite their difficulties starting the NBA Finals, the Bucks remain confident. They have been proven throughout the postseason, including in the Eastern Conference semifinals when they bounced back after losing the first two games against the Nets.
“It’s going to be tough. That’s a great team there,” Bucks forward Khris Middleton said during Saturday’s press release. “But we just have to stay the course. Find out the things that we did wrong. Find out the things that we did well and continue to do the things that we do well and try to expand on that. And then limit the things that we did not do very well.”
The Suns, meanwhile, are not going to rest on their laurels. Phoenix sees Game 3 as a golden opportunity to push Milwaukee to the brink of elimination.
“For us, the most important game of the year is tomorrow. Tomorrow. It’s a game we have to win,” Suns guard Chris Paul said Saturday. “We have to come out with that mentality. Know that they are at home, they are more comfortable, they will be in front of their fans. But it has to be us. We have to be us and we have to be the hungriest team, and that’s what we’ll do.” .
