Suns vs Bucks start time, channel

The Suns vs Bucks live stream starts tonight at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT (July 20).
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 almost time for the Suns vs Bucks live stream, and it's win or go home for Phoenix in game 6. Giannis Antetokounmpo could deliver Milwaukee's first title since 1971. Meanwhile, Phoenix’s Chris Paul and Devin Booker will try to force a Game 7 after this NBA playoffs live stream — and the team's just bought a billboard ad in Milwaukee to support the Suns as they enter enemy territory.

This season and playoff run for Milwaukee has been nothing short of magical. They got revenge on a Miami team who ended their season last year. Then made it past the Nets despite some historical performances from Kevin Durant before knocking off a hot Hawks team. Now the Bucks are one win shy of their first NBA championship since a 24-year-old Kareem Abdul-Jabbar led them to the title in 1971.

Giannis enters Game 6 after a 32-point, nine-rebound performance Saturday night. The two-time MVP is trying to stay focused despite how close his team is to hoisting the Larry O’Brien Trophy, “One more to go, we got to keep playing good basketball and can’t worry about the outcome”, Giannis told ESPN after the Bucks Game 5 win.

The Suns started Game 5 strong, building as much as a 16-point first quarter lead. But the Bucks stormed back and controlled most of the game. With 30 seconds to play in regulation and the Suns down a point, Devin Booker grabbed a defensive rebound and took off down the other end. He drove the lane, but was met by Giannis, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday. Holiday forced a turnover and took the ball back up the court and found Giannis for a game-sealing alley-oop dunk. Booker finished with 40 points in the loss.

The Bucks host the Suns in Game 6 as 5-point favorites. The over/under is 222.
