The Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns play game four of the NBA Finals Wednesday night. The Phoenix Suns lead this series 2-1 ahead of this pivotal game four. The Milwaukee Bucks have relied on Giannis Antetokounmpo to do everything in this series so far. Chris Paul and Devin Booker had an off night in game 3, we should get a much better performance in game 4.
The Pick: Suns +4.5
The Why: Booker and Paul bounce back
For starters, let me say that I think we’re due for a close game. The previous three games have all been decided by double-digits. Last game, the Bucks were able to hold Devin Booker and Chris Paul in check to get the easy 20 point win. Holding the two most consistent players in the playoffs in check, is something that we should not expect to happen.
Booker scored only 10 points last game on 21.4% shooting from the field and 14.3% from three. In the postseason he is averaging 26.3 PPG and is shooting 43.5% from the field and 34.1% from three. Booker is a bad matchup for the Bucks. He scored 27 in game one and 31 in game two. I expect him to return to form tonight and explode offensively. Same thing with Chris Paul. He had 19 points and shot well from the floor, but I expect him to get in the mid 20s tonight. Both guys are good at creating their own shots, they just have to hit them. Tonight, Booker will.
We’re going to back the Suns and the points in this one. Deandre Ayton is very important for this Suns team. Last game he was limited to 24 minutes due to foul trouble. If he’s able to stay out of foul trouble he will give Giannis more resistance at the rim. We’re going to back Booker and Paul to bounce back and make this game close. Take the Suns.
