Entering the last four minutes of the game the Suns were up by three (95-92) with Devin Booker having already 40 points and the Bucks being on the ropes. Things went even further with an obvious non-call that could have been Booker’s sixth game at a very crucial moment.
However, that turned to be a wake-up call for the Bucks with Giannis Antetokounmpo making a big block on DeAndre Ayton and Khris Middleton getting the job done on the offensive end on the way to a 109-103 Bucks win with tied the score in the NBA Finals at 2-2.
Middleton finished the night with 40 points – while Booker had 42 – and Giannis despite being obviously bothered by his knee injury managed to make the most decisive play of the night and also had 26 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and two blocks.

“Just a hustle play”, said Giannis about his big block after the game. “I thought I was gonna get dunked on, to be honest with you.”
It was a statement game from the Bucks that can be considered an instant classic in the history of the NBA finals, while the Suns once more struggled on the road with Chris Paul having just 10 points, seven assists, and four turnovers.
