In what can be considered the start of a new series the Bucks and the Suns are now playing on a level field. The Bucks ended up winning the game by coming back. The win for the Bucks came with a final score of 109-103, but the really impressive part was the fact that the Bucks had to battle back from being down in the very final minutes of the game before winning.

Now, one part that is impressive is the fact that the Bucks offense showed up in the game. However, the Bucks offense was contained to a point as the Suns only allowed the Bucks to get a total of 109 points. Now, the one thing that the Suns have to do is figure out how to close out the road games of the Suns could be in trouble as the 6th game of the series will be heading back to Milwaukee.

In the loss the Phoenix Suns offense looked good shooting at a clip of only 51.3% from the field. However, the Suns ended up shooting at a clip of 30.4% from beyond the three point line. Phoenix did turn the ball over 17 times, but only managed to get 40 boards. 

Milwaukee did not have that good of a day when it came to shooting. The Bucks landed a total of 40.2% of the shots. The Bucks shot only 24.1% from behind the three point line. Milwaukee was great on the ball control turning the ball over only 5 times, but the Bucks also controlled the rebounding in the win as well with a total of 48 boards.

Offensively both teams were led by a single player. The Suns ended up getting a total of 42 points from Booker. The second high scorer was Crowder with 15 points. The Suns ended up with 17 boards from Ayton in the game and Paul led the team with 7 assists. Middleton managed to get 40 points in the game to lead Milwaukee. The second high scorer was Antetokounmpo who ended up with 26 points, but completed a double-double with 14 boards. Oddly, for all of his hard work Antetokounmpo led the Bucks in assists as well with 8.

Coming back to Phoenix will give the Suns the edge that they need to have. The Suns were able to look decent in the last game against Milwaukee, but allowed the Bucks to get back into the game. This allowed the Bucks to pull out the win in the game, but the one thing that will happen here is in Phoenix the Suns have looked really impressive and have been able to contain the Bucks offense to a point, but also have ended up with a good offensive showing as well. Look for that to continue in the game here as the Suns are able to pull out a win, but also look for the game to go on the over as the Suns offense comes to life on their home court.
