How to Watch the NBA Finals: Game 4 Tonight Without Cable

  • Reading time:5 mins read

The Milwaukee Bucks scored their first series win at home when they defeated the Phoenix Suns 120-103 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. The Bucks will be looking to tie up the series in a crucial home game tonight, as they are down 2-1 before the series heads back to Phoenix. Tonight’s Game 4 will bring a lot of pressure to both teams, as the winner of Game 4 usually goes on to win the series.

The Suns were blown off the court in Game 3. They had a 3-point lead at the end of the first quarter but by halftime, the Bucks had a 15-point lead and never looked back. Offensively, the Suns were at a standstill and did not have a single-player score over 20 points. They will have to do better in Game 4 if they want to beat the Bucks on the road tonight. Luckily for Phoenix, NBA referee Scott Foster is not going to officiate tonight’s game, as Suns PG Chris Paul is 0-12 in playoff games officiated by him.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has proved why he is one of the all-time greats with his performance in this series. After coming back to play on such short notice with a hyperextended knee, the former 2-time NBA MVP has put up back-to-back 40+ games — averaging 34.4 points and 14 rebounds throughout the Finals. The Bucks also got major contributions from Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday who scored a combined 39 points which secured Sunday’s win.

Defensively, the sunset on Phoenix as they had no answers when it came to stopping Milwaukee’s offense. Offensively, Chris Paul and Devin Booker were not making shots in Game 3 as efficiently as they did in games 1 and 2. However, the biggest liability for the Suns is PF Frank Kaminsky, who is getting extended minutes due to a season-ending knee injury suffered by Dario Saric in Game 1. In 14 minutes, Kaminsky had 6 points and 4 rebounds but he was no match defensively for Bucks forwards PJ Tucker, Antetokounmpo, and center Brook Lopez. If the Suns can’t adjust during Game 4, look for the Bucks to tie the series up heading back to Phoenix.
