The Suns vs Bucks live stream is about to begin, and it gives Giannis Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee the moment they need to to save this series. Were they to lose, Phoenix is one game away from the title, as they're currently up two to one going into this NBA playoffs live stream

The Bucks have seen their share of adversity during this playoff run. But going into today's game, Antetokounmpo is trying to at least keep a good mood, talking to the press about how he's trying to keep the atmosphere "light."

After sweeping the Heat in the opening round, the Bucks found themselves down 2-0 against the Nets before storming back and winning that series in seven games. Then they dropped Game 1 of the Conference Semis at home to the Hawks, before coming back and winning that series in six games, despite missing Giannis for Games 5 and 6. This match-up with the Suns just feels and looks different. 

Phoenix withstood a 42-point night from Giannis in Game 2 to take a 2-0 series. They’ve controlled the pace of play throughout the first two games and built at least a 15-point lead in both games. 

The Suns have been led by veteran point guard Chris Paul who has helped get everyone involved in their offense. Devin Booker is coming off a great Game 2 performance where he scored a team-high 31-points with 7-for-12 shooting from three. Mikal Bridges also had a big night with 27 points for Phoenix.  

The Bucks host the Suns in Game 3 as 4.5-point favorites. The over/under is 221.
