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.
HOW DARE THEY?😱
Who’s seen this overlooking I-43 near downtown MKE?
How do we feel about this @Bucks fans? #FearTheDeer #BucksIn6 pic.twitter.com/hB6VzDuB5p

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.
