47 years after they played their last game in the NBA Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks will need to wait at least two more days before getting their first win since then.
They fell to the Suns 118 to 105 Tuesday evening in Phoenix to fall one game to none in the best of seven series.
The first team to win four games takes the title and the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy. For the Bucks, it would be their second title after winning it all in 1971. For the Suns, they are looking for their first NBA title ever.
The biggest questions going into Game One is whether or not Giannis will play. He has sat out since hyper extending his left knee during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. After warming up on the court prior to the game, he was put in the starting lineup.
