|Jordan Greer||Suns in 6|
Jordan Greer of Sporting News believes that Chris Paul and the Suns will take care of business in six games. He noted that Giannis Antetokounmpo’s health status makes it difficult to make a prediction, but even if the Greek Freak plays, Greer seems confident that Phoenix will raise the Larry O’Brien Trophy when it’s all said and done.

If that would be the case, that means that the Bucks would win the title in Game 7 on the road, as the Suns own the homecourt advantage in the series.

|Ryan Simpson, News Editor||Bucks in 7|
Ryan Simpson of TopBet predicts that the Bucks will win the 2021 NBA Finals against the Suns in seven games. The Bucks have been playing better even without Giannis Antetokounmpo, which still makes sense, as they have other stars to lead the team. Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday are capable of exploding while the pair of Bobby Portis and Brook Lopez have been fantastic in the absence of Antetokounmpo. As much as it would be great to see Chris Paul finally become a champion, Simpson thinks that this is the year of the Bucks.
