NBA Finals: Phoenix Suns look to resist Giannis Antetokounmpo charge in game 4
- The Milwaukee Bucks will be aiming for a victory in game 4 to level the best-of-seven series 2-2
- Phoenix Suns are currently 2-1 ahead in the series
- Suns forward Cam Johnson said that it is tough to balance when Antetokounmpo is coming hard at you
The Phoenix Suns will have to find a defensive ploy to stop Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo ahead of the next NBA finals game on Wednesday. Antetokounmpo scored 41 points against a frustrated Phoenix Suns squad in game three of the seven-match championship. Suns are currently 2-1 ahead in the series.
The Greek Star also grabbed 12 rebounds to guide his side to victory in game 3. The Bucks will be aiming for a victory in game 4 to level the best-of-seven series 2-2.
Suns forward Cam Johnson said that it is tough to balance that physicality when Antetokounmpo is coming hard at you. "It's on us to stop him, give him more resistance," he said.
"But you just got to do it. We're capable of doing it. We know that. We'll go back, look, see what we need to change and change it."
The Suns are looking to win their first NBA title in their 53-year history. "We know we got to be better," said Johnson. "There's a lot of frustration anytime you lose. You can see it on everybody's face. It's a terrible feeling.
Johnson said that this terrible feeling would motivate the Suns to get back out there and go right back at Bucks in the next game.
Antetokounmpo has consecutive 40-point games, aided in game two by foul trouble on Suns center Deandre Ayton, whistled for five violations for the first time in the playoffs.
"It affected us obviously, but we have to weather the storm," Suns forward Jae Crowder said. "We have to adjust.
