The WTOP Huddle: NBA Finals preview, Scherzer’s All-Star snub

The NBA Finals tip off Tuesday night in Phoenix, where the favored Suns host the first two games of the series against the Milwaukee Bucks. Will Giannis Antetokounmpo return in time to help the Bucks win their first championship since 1971, or will this serve as a coronation of Phoenix’s first title?

Also inside the WTOP Huddle: the Nationals had a rough weekend against the Dodgers and the added insult of having ace pitcher Max Scherzer left off the NL All-Star roster. Our sports team (seemingly as shorthanded as the Nats) discusses why and what it means for Washington’s three first-time All-Stars.

See what WTOP Senior Sports Director Dave Johnson and Sports reporters Rob Woodfork and Dave Preston have to say.

Watch the discussion below.
