Special To player, special treatment. Chris Paul asks his Phoenix teammates to adopt this rule before facing Milwaukee and his Greek phenomenon, Giannis Antetokounmpo, that night from Wednesday 14 to Thursday 15 June, for Game 4 of the NBA Finals. For the 36-year-old point guard, this is the only way to hope to win their first North American franchise title.

The Suns lead 2-1. The Bucks, dominated in the first two games (2-0), signed their first success (120-100) in Game 3. A victory that they owe to Antetokounmpo, author in particular of 41 points, and which motivates them as for following operations.

He explains : “I get on the field, I dunke, I dunke again and I do a lay-up. That’s the way it is, we have to find a way to stop it. Or at least find a way to slow down. For us, slowing it down or not winning the game. I don’t care what the stats sheet looks like after the game. He’s been an MVP twice, so we have to treat him like one. “
