Extra Pass: Bucks, Suns put win streak on the line in Finals rematch

Both the Bucks and the Suns are surging ahead of their highly anticipated matchup, 11:00 AM on NBA TV Philippines, available on Smart GigaPlay app and Cignal TV.

What’s up with the Milwaukee Bucks?

The basic update is that the Milwaukee Bucks are on a four-game winning streak. Another update is Giannis Antetokounmpo’s got jokes lately. Go ahead and check his Instagram. When he’s not posting about family, he’s telling dad jokes that aren’t particularly funny whether or not you’re a Bucks fan. It’s kind of brutal when you think about it. Giannis just wants to dunk on people on and off the court and there’s nothing stopping him. Let’s see if Giannis keeps the jokes up after a tough Phoenix Suns matchup. 

What’s up with the Phoenix Suns?

The Phoenix Suns have the best record in the league. They have two All-Star reserves, which is just more ammunition for them to take down everyone listed next on their schedule. Their three-game winning streak isn’t even important at this point. The Suns are just racking up wins at a break-neck speed while Devin Booker is on a personal quest to check just how unstoppable he is on offense.

Storyline to watch out for

This will be the first time since the 2021 NBA Finals that these two elite teams will share the floor. They will undoubtedly exchange jabs (and I don’t mean those Giannis pregame and postgame jokes), but the knockout punches are reserved for the postseason.


Giannis and DBook will figure in a game of who-can-put-up-the-crazier-statline. The only true winner when that happens are the fans.
