The 'Most points in an NBA Finals' quiz

It's put up or shut up time for the Phoenix Suns. After winning the first two games of this year's NBA Finals, Chris Paul and the upstart Suns now find themselves just one loss away from going home empty-handed. Center Deandre Ayton seemingly enjoys the uphill battle that lies ahead, while Chris Paul is likely a bit more nervous about things. Not only is this Paul's best, and possibly last chance to take home a championship, but if he loses he'll set the type of record that pro athletes don't like to set. Game 6 tips off at 9 P.M. ET on ABC.

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Devin Booker have put on a show in the Finals, and another good game from each will put them near the top of the list for most points scored in a single NBA Finals. So with that in mind, how many of the players to score the most points in one NBA Finals series can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
