Suns star Chris Paul said it better ahead of his team’s Game 6 against the Bucks: “We have to go out, be ready to play and it’s either win or come home.”
Phoenix enters Tuesday night’s contest on the brink of elimination after losing three straight games of the NBA Finals. The Suns haven’t lost confidence, however, and believe they can force a Game 7.
“Something the coach [Monty Williams] and everybody said, if you went at the start of the season and said we had a chance to be where we are right now, would you take it? Absoutely. Absolutely, ”Paul said at his press conference on Monday. “And we have the chance to determine the outcome. It’s not like the game is going to be simulated or that someone else has to play. We have a chance. We control our own destiny. So I think that’s the exciting part about it. “
In the locker room in Milwaukee, the challenge is to stay in the moment. The Bucks have all the momentum on their side, but the job isn’t done yet.
“I can’t focus on the celebration. I can’t focus on that right now because I feel like you’re getting too far ahead of yourself,” the star said on Monday. Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo. “We have to focus. I have to focus right away, and then when the game is tomorrow, focus on each possession at a time, one possession at a time. Like I said, play basketball well, compete as hard as you can and put us in a position to win this game. That’s all you can ask for. “
Will the Bucks win their first NBA championship in 50 years? Or will the Suns find a way to stay alive?
