Suns 69-66 Bucks, 4:32, 3rd quarter
Oh, there’s Chris Paul who makes a shot. Holiday finds Giannis for a layup that gets the audience excited… until a Paul layup immediately quiets them. The scoring binge continues with Middleton hitting a mid-ranger.

Here’s the problem for the Suns: Booker is, by far, their most dangerous player and he’s just picked up his fourth foul. Middleton gets to the line an makes both free throws while the Suns have to take Booker out here.
