The 2021 NBA Finals have arrived and despite a slew of injuries to superstars throughout the regular season and playoffs, two teams have arrived at the last stretch of the season.
The Suns are back in the Finals for the first time since 1992-93 and hope to cap a magical playoff run with the franchise’s first championship. After a decade without postseason play, Phoenix is set up to be a consistent contender with a core of Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton and Mikal Bridges.
The Bucks make the NBA Finals for the first time in the Giannis Antetokoummpo era, ending a 46-year Finals drought. Antetokounmpo is dealing with a knee injury, but Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday have carried the team in his absence. Brook Lopez, P.J. Tucker and Bobby Portis have also provided strong rotation minutes.
