Giannis Antetokounmpo gave a new and magnificent recital (41 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists) and returned the illusion to the Milwaukee Bucks, who beat the Phoenix Suns (120-100) this Sunday to shorten distances in the Finals of the NBA (1-2).

The Greek, who only three days ago had scored 42 points in another monumental performance, was unstoppable in the zone until he became an absolute nightmare for a Suns without answers.

Two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Antetokounmpo sparked the Bucks to a victory that pulled them within 2-1 in the best-of-seven championship series that continues Wednesday at Milwaukee.

Game 4 is Wednesday night, with the series guaranteed to go back to Phoenix afterward.

Antetokounmpo, who missed the last two games of the Eastern Conference finals because of a hyperextended left knee and was no sure thing to even be ready to start this series, followed up his 42-point, 12-rebound performance in Game 2 by doing it all again – even making his free throws this time.

Back in front of his own fans and free of the loud counts he’s been hearing on the road, Antetokounmpo went 13 of 17 at the line. With two straight 40-point games in the NBA Finals, he’s halfway to Michael Jordan’s record – set against the Suns.

Chris Paul had 19 points and nine assists, but the Suns got next to nothing from his star backcourt mate. Booker shot 3 for 14, scoring just 10 points.
