The Milwaukee Bucks have overcome the Phoenix Suns 120-100 in Game 3 to erase the deficit in the best-of-seven series to 2-1.
Trailing by 3 points after a quarter of play, Milwaukee roared back in the 2nd outscoring the Suns 35-17 to end the first half with a 15-point lead.
The Bucks saw their advantage cut to 4 points midway through the 3rd but they put intense pressure to stretch the gap to 22 points which was more than enough of a cushion to propel them to a win. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 41 points, 13 rebounds and six assists for Milwaukee while Chris Paul scored 19 for the Suns. Game 4 is on Wednesday night in Milwaukee.
