Milwaukee hasn’t won an NBA title since the 1971 season, and with one of its best rosters ever, it must capitalize on this opportunity.
However, star Giannis Antetokounmpo is day-to-day with a knee injury he suffered in the Eastern Conference Finals, so his status is a key factor to monitor heading into Game 1.
The Suns last played in the Finals in 1993, but the franchise has never hoisted the title in its history. Led by Chris Paul and Devin Booker, Phoenix has been one of the most complete teams in all of basketball this season.
With both teams eager to achieve what hasn’t been done in a long time, here’s the full schedule and where to watch the games, via NBA Communications:

The most notable difference in this series is the three days of rest between Game 2 until Game 6, if necessary.
Prior playoff series this postseason has had mostly one day of rest, but the extra time off will help players’ bodies recover and there will be more time to watch film and improve for the next game.
Game 1 tips off Tuesday, July 6 at 6:00 p.m. PST.
