ESPN’s analyst Stephen A Smith thinks Khris Middleton should be in the conversation for the Finals’ MVP after his performances in the last three games that helped the Bucks return from a 2-0 deficit.

If the Bucks close the Finals’ series in six or seven games, Middleton will definitely be among the players that could be considered for the award alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Giannis has also been incredible in the series, helping the Bucks in several occasions throughout the games whenever the team needed him.

Middleton averages 24.5 points, shooting 44 percent from the field and 36 percent from deep. He also puts up 6.6 rebounds and 5.4 rebounds through the last five games.

On the other hand, Antetokounmpo is a dominant force throughout the series, with 32 points per contest on 61 percent shooting from the field. He also records 13 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game in the NBA Finals.
