The Lede: Following a Game 1 loss in which Chris Paul and Devin Booker got wherever they wanted, the Bucks adjusted. Jrue Holiday hounded Paul up the court, while Milwaukee’s defense swarmed Booker’s pick-and-roll action. On the other end, Giannis Antetokounmpo helped the Bucks reassert their dominance in the paint and at the free throw line … and it didn’t matter. The attention on Phoenix’s stars allowed the Suns’ shooters to get going. Mikal Bridges scored a playoff-career high 27 points, while the Suns as a team drilled a franchise playoff record 20 3-pointers. Paul and Booker helped close out the win and combined for 54 points, part of a team effort that was enough to counter Antetokounmpo’s mammoth 42-point, 12-rebound performance.
