Post-game quotes:

KHRIS MIDDLETON (BUCKS): “Just the energy. I have been playing in this building for two years. Many shots. I guess I have to do some extra shots in Phoenix and all that. But I just have to find a way to take down shots when I’m on the road. It has been difficult for me throughout the postseason. I just have to find a way. “

GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO (BUCKS): “Difficult game. Hard game. It wasn’t a pretty game, but we got through it. They played very well, very well. You have to give them credit. But like I said, three minutes before in the timeout in my head, I mean, you have to keep making plays; Right now, how bad do you want it? If they go 3-1, it’s a completely different ball game. I feel like it was just emotions. Sometimes I block shots and run to the other side, but I think there were so many emotions in me and I tried to enjoy that moment. And sometimes you have a block, you have a three, whatever, run to the other end. But for me, the way I play, the way I want to play in the future, I want to enjoy every moment. That was a moment where I felt like our team was turning around and we were building momentum and Khris was hitting big shots. It felt good.”

DEVIN BOOKER (SOL) ON HIS 42 POINT NIGHT: “It doesn’t matter at all. I said it after the last game too, when I had trouble shooting. The main objective is to win the game. So whatever happens during the game, it doesn’t really matter. “

CHRIS PAUL (SUNS): “You can’t trust the fact that you came home, you have to go out and play the game. You have to go out and run, so we will, we will. We usually answer well, but it is easy. We know what we have to do, we know what we have to do. Be better “.

MIKE BUDENHOLZER (BUCKS HEAD COACH): “Yeah, I think this is kind of a mental win for us. I think both teams are falling apart. I thought Jrue made several winning plays late – the steal, I thought he came up with a great defensive rebound in traffic, and I thought he came up with a great offensive rebound. So I think for him, just the mental toughness you mentioned, that’s how it’s built. He’s a winner, and he made a lot of winning plays in the last three or four minutes. “

MONTY WILLIAMS (SUNS HEAD COACH): “He’s huge and it’s not just Giannis, it’s all his guys. I mean the first play of the game the other night, we talked about it the other day, like Jrue made a corner three. We didn’t have the greatest awareness in that environment, sure. We talked about it for two days. They are also a rhythm team. “
