NBA Finals 2021: What you need to know

Jul 6- 4 min read

2021 NBA Finals

Tonight, the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks will begin their series as they compete in the NBA Finals for the championship.  This is huge for both franchises. I don’t think anyone really expected to see the Bucks beat the Nets and the Suns beat the Clippers, but here we are.

This is Buck’s first appearance in the NBA Finals since 1974. The Suns are also making their first appearance since 1993. Clearly, 2021 is the new 90s.

Let’s take a look at the Bucks record in the last 4 seasons:

2017-18: Lost in the first round

2018-19: Lost in the eastern conference finals

2019-20: Lost in the eastern conference semi-finals

2020-21: East conference champions

Giannis will most likely be out for the first game of the series due to a knee injury, which occurred in game 4 of the Hawks series. Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday, and Brooke Lopez will look to be the stars of this game 1.

The Suns will have a home-court advantage for Game 1.

Let’s take a look at the Suns record in the last 4 seasons:

2017-18: Worst record in NBA

2018-19: Worst record in the western conference

2019-20: #10 in the west

2020-21: western conference champions

What I’m taking away from the Suns is that you can be the worst of something twice and still eventually win. Isn’t that inspiring!

If the Suns win the NBA Finals, this will be the first Final Championship title for the franchise. After 16 years with the Suns, Chris Paul is finally seeing an NBA final but is suffering from a wrist injury. This won’t stop him from playing in game 1. Devin Booker will also be a star to watch as he competes for MVP.

My NBA Finals prediction:

Final score: Bucks in 7 (110-108)

MVP Bucks: Khris Middleton

Khris Middleton, NBA finals, basketball
