The Milwaukee Bucks made their way to Phoenix and roared their way to a third straight win. With the 123-119 win tonight, the Bucks get in the driver’s seat and command the series 3-2. The stars lit up bright for the Bucks, as Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday all showed up. Giannis led the pack, scoring 32 points, grabbing 9 rebounds, and dishing 6 assists. Khris Middleton scored 29 points and grabbed 7 rebounds, whereas Jrue Holiday scored 27 points and dished 13 assists.

The Suns had a lot of stars showing up to support them at home. There were celebrities like Adele, Vanessa Hudgens, and LeBron James in the crowd.
Skip Bayless blames LeBron James for the Suns’ loss in Game 5
Before the game tonight, the Suns were on an 8 unbeaten home streak these playoffs. Overall, they have been 8-1 at home, with the only loss coming against LeBron James and the Lakers. However, Giannis and co. had different plans tonight. They came out and dominated the Suns, and registered their third straight win in the series.
Skip Bayless, after he was done fuming about the entire game, realized the main reason the Suns lost. Even though the reason had been in front of him all game, Skip had to wait and complete his role as an analyst before revealing what was actually on his mind. As expected, he chose LeBron James as the fall-guy for everything that went wrong tonight.
This is what happens when LeBron shows up to root for you in a huge NBA Finals home game.
