The unusual circumstances surrounding this NBA Finals
Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo looked in picture-perfect health and played Game 1. And it didn’t matter one bit. The Suns have too many weapons.

Backcourt partner in crime Devin Booker had a scorching start and pumped in 27 points Tuesday as the Suns routed the Bucks, 118-105, at Phoenix Suns Arena.
Old-school center D’Andre Ayton was fearsome inside and racked up 22 points and 19 rebounds. It’s the first 15-and-15 game in a Finals debut since Tim Duncan vs. the Knicks in 1999.
