NBA Finals 2021: Expert Predictions for Phoenix Suns-Milwaukee Bucks and Series MVP

The 2021 NBA Finals feature one of the most unexpected matchups in recent league history. And, at the moment, the Phoenix Suns-Milwaukee Bucks showdown is one of the most difficult to predict.

The biggest reason? Two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, who injured his left knee in Game 4 of the Bucks’ Eastern Conference final series against the Atlanta Hawks, is in doubt for Game 1. Whether the five-time All-Star healthy enough to make an impact on the court, Milwaukee’s chances of its first NBA title since 1971 increase.

If Antetokounmpo is out of the game or limited throughout the series, Chris Paul and the Suns could be on their way to the franchise’s first championship, and future Hall of Famer point guard.

Which team will win the title? Which star is the pick to take home the NBA Finals MVP honors? Let’s take a look at our experts’ predictions.
