The Suns lead the Finals by a 2-0 count, but Chris Paul doesn’t want them to let up as the series shifts to Milwaukee.
“For us, the biggest game of the year is tomorrow. Tomorrow,” Paul told reporters. “It’s a must-win game for us. We got to come out with that mindset.”
Game 3 is Sunday night at 8 p.m. EST (ABC, ESPN radio).
Paul and his Suns teammates say they are actually treating the series as if its tied, 0-0.
“Just got to treat it like it’s Game 1,” guard/forward Mikal Bridges said. “We talk about it in the locker room. Our next game is our most important game. Whether that’s the regular season or the playoffs or the finals. Our next game is our most important game.”
More From Phoenix
- Coach Monty Williams said it was no surprise the Bucks came out attacking the rim in Game 2, and he expects more of the same Sunday. “The first quarter was a storm of aggression from them attacking the paint and offensive rebounding,” he said. “That was their way to attack Atlanta after a loss, get to the paint. We knew that was coming.”
- Williams said forward Torrey Craig will continue to test his banged-up knee prior to tipoff, as relayed by Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic. If Craig can’t go, Williams suggested he will give more minutes to Cam Johnson and perhaps Abdel Nader, Rankin noted.
