Milwaukee Bucks have tied the best-of-seven series of the NBA Finals.

The formation of coach Mike Budenholzer was too strong for Phoenix Suns in the night from Wednesday to Thursday (Dutch time) with 109-103.

The Bucks owed the victory to the last quarter, in which a 76-82 deficit was cleared.

Khris Middleton was the home side's most prolific player throughout the game with 40 points, while star player Giannis Antetokounmpo had 26 points, 8 assists and 14 rebounds.

Most points in the fourth meeting were made by Devin Booker, but the American was unable to help Phoenix Suns with 42 points in Milwaukee.

It is the second loss in a row for the Suns, who got off to a great start to the NBA Finals by winning the first two games at home.

The Milwaukee Bucks win makes it 2-2 and it is certain that no decision will be made this week.

The fifth meeting in the best-of-seven series will be played in the Phoenix Suns Arena in the night from Saturday to Sunday (Dutch time).

The sixth game will follow in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday in Milwaukee, after which it will become clear whether a seventh meeting is needed.

The Milwaukee Bucks became NBA champions for the first and only time in 1971. Phoenix Suns captured the title in the Western Conference for the third time in history this year, but have never won the NBA Finals.
