Game 1 went well. The Suns looked sharp. CP3 was locked in. Ayton looked dominant. On the other hand, Giannis looked very healthy. So where does that leave us for game 2 with the Suns a 5 point home favorite?
We stay on the Suns of course. I could see myself taking the Bucks home game 3. But for this, in Phoenix, Suns are a go. I expect the Suns to shoot better early and keep it going later into the game. The only worry is that Giannis or Middleton drop a 40 piece. But I think the Suns defense will hold strong.
Official pick: Suns -5. Positive vibes only.
