Suns vs. Bucks score, results: Milwaukee survives Devin Booker’s Game 4 outburst, evens series
The 2021 NBA Finals are now a best-of-three series.
The Bucks evened things at two games apiece on Wednesday night with a thrilling 109-103 win over the Suns. Milwaukee survived an offensive explosion from Phoenix star Devin Booker, who scored 42 points on 17-of-28 shooting in Game 4. Unfortunately for Booker, the Suns’ other four starters combined for just 38 points.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton unsurprisingly led the way for the Bucks. Middleton outscored the Suns 10-4 over the final two minutes and 15 seconds of regulation on his way to a 40-point outing, and Antetokounmpo totaled 26 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two blocks, one of which left NBA Twitter in complete awe.
“Giannis has been amazing,” Middleton told ESPN’s Malika Andrews during his postgame interview. “He didn’t have the dominant performance that we’re used to seeing, but he did it with the other things tonight. And that’s what helped us win.”
