Chen talking about ‘Big Three’ in the 2020-21 season, the mind quickly wanders to Brooklyn (Durant, Harden and Irving), perches on the Clippers (Leonard, George and Ibaka) and even gets close to his neighbors Lakers (James, Davis and anyone else). But no, the real ‘Big Three’ was in Milwaukee.
The fifth game of the Finals, the robbery of Holiday and the mate of Antetokounmpo, the one of the comeback of the Bucks, has left a devastating data on the value of the trio of stars that have those of Wisconsin.
Between Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holilday scored or produced (via assists), 115 of the 123 points of his team, that is, 93% of the Bucks’ points in the fifth game came from his hands.
The data reveals the importance of these three players who, if they produce at the same time, convert the Bucks in today’s toughest team to beat. Since the trio’s performance in these Finals, the Suns have seen their 2-0 lead in the first two games at Arizona vanish. And the sixth being in Milwaukee.
