PHOENIX — — Chris Paul waited 16 years to get to the NBA Finals, bringing with him a team starving for its first championship. Paul had 32 points and nine assists in an NBA Finals debut that was well worth the wait, Devin Booker scored 27 points and the Suns beat the returning Giannis Antetokounmpo and his Milwaukee Bucks 118-105 on Tuesday night in Game 1. Paul scored 16 points during a sensational third quarter that had Phoenix fans who waited 28 years to see the NBA Finals again screaming in delight. In the third quarter, Paul was 6 for 7 and made all three of his 3-point attempts. Deandre Ayton added 22 points and 19 rebounds to continue his breakout stretch of play in his first postseason. Antetokounmpo had 20 points and 17 rebounds after missing two games in the Eastern Conference Finals with a hyperextended left knee. Khris Middleton scored 29 points, but the Bucks will have to play from behind again after dropping Game 1 for the third straight series. The series opener was the first NBA Finals game in Phoenix since Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls won their third straight championship here in Game 6 in 1993. The Suns, who came into the NBA with the Bucks in 1968, made their only other finals appearance in 1976.
