NBA finals 2021 Game 6: Phoenix Suns v Milwaukee Bucks – live! | Sport
Chris Paul has heard the criticism: he has a team high 13 points plus four assists after a somewhat sluggish start.
You’ll never (i.e. probably) guess this but Giannis has the game-high halftime point total with 17.

Suns 39-36 Bucks, 3:11, 2nd quarter
The free throws are a big part in the Phoenix comeback here. Ayton gets to the line and gets both. Giannis knows he has to answer here and he does with a hookshot to keep pace.
Suns call a timeout after a few misses for both teams.
Suns 37-34 Bucks, 3:52, 2nd quarter
Giannis to the line and now he misses one… but makes the second, it’s a…
