How did the Phoenix Suns perform in Game 3 vs. the Milwaukee Bucks?

D. Among the biggest takeaways from Phoenix’s side of things was the abysmal shooting night from Devin Booker, who scored just 10 points on 3-of-14 shooting, including 1-of-7 from deep. The Bucks threw different looks at him personnel-wise, keeping him guessing throughout the contest. As a result, the guard struggled to get anything going for himself, which obviously hurt the Suns as they needed his contributions. Chris Paul led the way with 19 points and nine assists with his running mate struggling, making an array of difficult jumpers while getting his teammates involved to try and stay afloat. The Bucks survived an 18 point night from Jae Crowder, who made six triples in seven attempts to serve as the Suns’ only source of consistent 3-point shooting on the night. After hitting 20 triples in Game 2, they would hit just nine in Game 3, Crowder doing a significant portion of that damage. Starting center Deandre Ayton started the contest off red-hot but was forced to sit early as he got into foul trouble, finishing the game with 18 points and nine rebounds. Whether it was Crowder, Johnson, Ayton, or whoever else was used defensively, they had no answer for Antetokounmpo’s onslaught on the offensive end. Between those defensive woes and Booker’s subpar shooting night, the Suns had a rough night in Game 3.. . Opponent. PHOENIX SUNS
