Two-time league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks are bringing the fight home on Sunday, as Cream City hopes to rise to the top in its first NBA Finals hosting gig in a half century.

With a 0-2 deficit in the best-of-7 series, the pressure is on the Bucks to overcome the Phoenix Suns' dominant defense and find their footing before it's too late.

"We got to play better. We got to compete harder to put ourselves in a position to win," said Antetokounmpo, who put up 42 points but received little help on offense in Thursday's 118-108 Game 2 loss.
