The Phoenix Suns were up 2-0 in the NBA Finals. They led Game 4 in Milwaukee by nine points in the fourth quarter. They were down one point with the ball in the final seconds of Game 5.
The Suns have to wake up on the eve of Game 6 wondering how they face elimination. The Milwaukee Bucks are up 3-2 in the series, with the Finals shifting to Milwaukee for Tuesday's Game 6. The Bucks are 5-point favorites at BetMGM.
Of course, not all is lost for the Suns. There might be value on their odds to win it all now.
The Suns were massive favorites to win a championship after those first two games in Phoenix. That was a little more than a week ago. Now the Suns are +310 to win the championship at BetMGM, with the Bucks being big -400 favorites.
Not that much has changed. The Suns had turnover problems in Games 3 and 4 in Milwaukee. The Bucks' three stars went off in Game 5. And had Giannis Antetokounmpo not managed that ridiculous block on Deandre Ayton in Game 4 or Jrue Holiday not pulled off a gutsy steal and subsequent alley-oop to Antetokounmpo to finish Game 5, it would be the Suns who would be favored, or have clinched already. The Suns are still perfectly capable of winning two in a row.
The road is a lot harder now, of course. Milwaukee will be fired up with its chance to clinch an NBA title at home for the first time in franchise history. The only time the Bucks won an NBA championship, in 1971, they were on the road. Even if the Suns steal Game 6, the Bucks have now shown they can win in Phoenix.
But the series isn't over. Far from it. The Suns can still win it, and now you're getting pretty good odds on it.
