Suns vs Bucks start time, channel

The Suns vs Bucks live stream will begin at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT / 2 a.m. BST today (July 14).
It will air on ABC and ESPN3, the latter is available on Sling TV, currently on sale down to $10 for the first month.

It's time for the Suns vs Bucks live stream, and tonight will be huge for the Bucks in one way or another. Either Giannis Antetokounmpo's squad will manage to bring itself back from an 0-2 hole to a tied series, or it will sink down to a 1-3 deficit — a single game away from the end of the NBA postseason. 

As for Giannis himself, the Milwaukee star has found motivation. He's told the press that the Suns' modified defense, designed to slow him down, only served to fuel his fire in the previous NBA playoffs live stream

There is an old phrase in sports, “You can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him.” It’s been echoed on highlight shows for the past few decades and it certainly applies to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s performance Sunday night. The two-time MVP scored 41 points for his second straight 40-plus-point game as he led the Bucks to a 120-100 win in Game 3. Now Milwaukee is in position to even this series at two games apiece before returning to Phoenix.

If the Suns are going to host Game 5 with a chance to clinch the series on their home court, they’ll need their stars to find their rhythm again. Devin Booker is coming off his worst game of the playoffs scoring just 10 points in Sunday night’s loss. For Booker, the game marked just the third time in the last two years he scored 10 or fewer points in a game. Chris Paul had a team-high 19 points in the loss.

The Bucks are trying to make their second comeback from being down 0-2 in this postseason. Milwaukee dropped the first two games in their Eastern Conference Semifinal with the Nets, before taking that series in seven games. That task may be tougher this time around as the Suns haven’t lost back-to-back games since their first round series against the Lakers.

The Bucks host the Suns in Game 4 as 4-point favorites. The over/under is 220.5.
