Bucks’ PF Giannis Antetokounmpo is doubtful to play against the Suns’ on Sunday.
Antetokounmpo is currently one of the front runners for MVP, averaging 31 PPG (career high) and 12 RPG.
The seven-time All Star played just six minutes in his first game back from the break due to a groin injury.
Milwaukee is currently on autopilot with a 13-game winning streak. And when Giannis is active, they have lost just one game since the start of the new year.
The Bucs’ winning streak has brought them within .5 games of first place in the Eastern Conference.
But standing in their way is a Phoenix Suns team that has started to find its grove over the past couple of weeks. Now almost fully healthy, the Suns are 11-4 over their last 15 games.
In a Western Conference where just four games separate the 4th and 13rd seed, it is pivotal for Phoenix to take advantage of any breaks that they can get.
This 2021 NBA Finals rematch will take place in Milwaukee at 11:00 a.m. Arizona time on Sunday morning. You can tune in on ABC.
