Monty Williams’ strong message to Devin Booker, Chris Paul, Suns after Game 4 loss to Bucks

Devin Booker Suns Chris Paul Monty Williams

The Phoenix Suns were firmly in the driver’s seat of the 2021 NBA Finals after Game 2. But now after Game 4 they stare at 2-2 series, as the Milwaukee Bucks have stormed right back to tie the score.

Suns head coach Monty Williams gave an impassioned speech in the locker room after their deflating Game 4 loss.

“We’re in this situation right now because we put ourselves in this situation. I mean in a good way. We got 3 games to win 2… This is hard. This is freakin hard, so you gotta stick together.”

Nobody expected the Milwaukee Bucks to simply roll over after falling behind 0-2 to the Suns. They have a 2-time MVP in Giannis Antetokounmpo, as well as former All-Stars in Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday who are more than capable of stepping up at the right time.

That’s exactly what happened in Game 4, as Middleton erupted for 40 huge points to provide the Bucks with the scoring punch they needed around Giannis to pull off the huge victory against the Suns.

But while momentum might have swung in Milwaukee’s favor after two consecutive wins, the Suns still hold home-court advantage, which has proven crucial since neither team has won a road game thus far.

Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and the rest of the Suns definitely aren’t going to hang their heads after this one. Game 5 is sure to be an epic showdown between two deserving sides.
