For the first time in over a decade, the Phoenix Suns are facing an elimination game in the NBA playoffs.

Down 3-2 in the NBA Finals, the Suns tip off against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 6 on Tuesday night in an effort to bring the series back to Phoenix for Game 7.

And in an effort to help show support to rally the Valley, a billboard that reads “Go Suns!” on an Arizona sunset backdrop has emerged near downtown Milwaukee.

The Suns have lost three straight games for the first time since late January after taking a 2-0 lead over the Bucks in the Finals.

Devin Booker and Co. are coming off of a heartbreaking 123-119 loss in Game 5 at the newly renamed Footprint Center.

The Suns became the first team in NBA history to lose a playoff game while shooting 55% from the field and 60% from three-point range.

Milwaukee will host Phoenix for Game 6 in what will be the Bucks’ last home game of the season at Fiserv Forum.

Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. Arizona time. Catch all the action on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
