The Milwaukee Bucks secured a second straight win over the Suns in Game 4 of the NBA finals at Fiserv Forum on Wednesday 109-103 to tie the NBA finals.
The series now returns to Phoenix tied 2-2 and becomes a best-of-3 contest.
Khris Middleton who scored 40 points was the man of the match for the Bucks. An absolutely unreal performance from him down the stretch. His jumpers and and-1 were absolutely crucial for Milwaukee.
A foul-plagued Devin Booker was too much for the Bucks to handle. Booker scored 42 points, but in the wild final minutes, the Bucks surged ahead, then hung on for a 109-103, rallying back from a nine-point final-period deficit.

For the first time this series, Giannis Antetokounmpo looked more passive. He didn’t match his prior two 40-point outings, but finished with 26 points, 16 rebounds and eight assists. Antetokounmpo made the defensive play of the game when he blocked Deandre Ayton’s alley-oop dunk attempt after he had taken a lob from Booker with 1:00 left.

The NBA finals series until now:
Game 3 of NBA finals
Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Milwaukee Bucks to an impressive win, by the score of 120-100, against the Suns in Game 3 of the NBA finals at Fiserv Forum Sunday night.
Antetokounmpo finished with 41 points, 13 rebounds and six assists in 38 minutes of action. It was an extremely impressive performance from the two-time MVP, but he also had his fair share of help.
Game 2 of NBA finals
The Phoenix Suns beat the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 of the NBA final last Thursday by 118-108, despite Giannis Antetokounmpo finishing with 42 points, 12 rebounds and four assists.
Devin Booker was the key in Game 2 for the Suns. He finished with a team-high 31 points on 12-of-25 shooting from the field. He was 7-for-12 from three-point range. He added five rebounds and six assists to his stat line.
Game 1 of NBA finals
A still-recovering Giannis Antetokounmpo was on the losing side of the NBA finals game 1 as the Milwaukee Bucks were defeated last Tuesday by the Phoenix Suns 105-118.
Chris Paul led the way with yet another stellar postseason outing. He scored 32 points to lead the Suns, but Devin Booker wasn’t far behind with 27 of his own.
