Phoenix Suns 36-year-old guard Chris Paul put up a brilliant performance in his first-ever NBA Finals, recording 32 points with 4 rebounds and 9 assists. He was aided by his supporting cast, as Devin Booker contributed 27 points, 2 rebounds and 6 assists, and Deandre Ayton put up 22 points and 19 rebounds in the game. After missing Games 5 and 6 of their Eastern Conference Finals to injury, Giannis Antetokoumpo was back on the court against the Phoenix Suns. The Greek Freak contributed 20 points with 17 rebounds and 4 assists as he tried to make an instant impact on his return from injury. Khris Middleton led the scoring for the Bucks with 29 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists.
