Devin Booker leads the Suns to a double digit victory against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, 118-109.
The Bucks got off to a fast start, pummeling the Suns in the paint in the first quarter. The Suns settled down and went on a short run to stay within striking distance. In the second quarter, the Suns outscored the Bucks 30-16 and took a 11-point lead into halftime.
Though Giannis Antetokounmpo had a monster game, scoring 42 points and getting 12 rebounds, it wasn’t enough to overcome the Suns in the second half.
Booker finally got out of his shooter’s slump, shooting 48% from the field and 58% from 3. He finished the game with 31 points
Booker wasn’t alone in tonight’s efforts. Forward Mikal Bridges played big for the Suns, scoring 27 points and grabbing 7 boards. Chris Paul chipped in 23 points and DeAndre Ayton finished with a double double.
With the win, the Suns own all the momentum as the series now shifts back to Milwaukee for Game 3 at Fiserv Forum. That matchup will take place on Sunday night with the opening tip scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
