Milwaukee, United States, Jul 14 (EFE).- The Milwaukee Bucks tied the NBA Finals Wednesday for an overall 2-2 score after beating Phoenix Suns 109-103 in a tough and very balanced game in which Devin Booker was outstanding.
The young guard added 42 points (17 of 28 in shots) but could not give the victory to the Suns, who have lost both games they played in Milwaukee.
Middleton was the big name for the Bucks with 40 points (15 of 33 shots), six rebounds and four assists.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, who dominated both the second and third games of the Finals, this time had 26 points (11 of 19 in shots), 14 rebounds and eight assists.
The Bucks trailed most of the night in a very sharp game in which neither team managed to lead by more than 10 points.
In the final stretch of the duel, Middleton’s cool was decisive to bring down the Suns and for the victory to remain in Milwaukee.
The Suns were hampered by his 17 turnovers and the discreet performance of Chris Paul (10 points, 7 assists and four rebounds).
Despite Booker being the game’s best player, his night was marked by problems with fouls, so much so that Booker was fouled out in the last minute of the game.
The two teams had a luckless night from the three point line: the Bucks had 24 percent and the Suns had 30 percent.
The Finals now return to Phoenix, where the fifth game will be played Saturday, with the Suns needing to make their home court advantage count. EFE
