This is the moment that the Bucks have waited for half a century. Milwaukee has finally won the NBA title. This is the first time since 1971. The heroes of Wisconsin this time are Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Midton, and Giannis Middleton. Khris Midton was 24 points, 49% shooting success and 6.3 rebounds, and 5.3 average assists. But the former Piston couldn’t keep up with the Greek interior.

Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated these NBA Finals scoring 35.2 points with 62% shooting, 12.9 rebounds and 5 assists. While Milwaukee was still struggling to win after a quarter of backwards play, Antetokounmpo from Athens managed to register 20 points in only the third quarter. The native Athensian then scored 50 points. This included 16 of 25 shots, 14 rebound and 5 blocks. It was enough to see the Bucks defeat Suns (105-98).
Still no CP3
Phoenix, who was facing defeat in Game 5 against Arizona, has shown tremendous resistance. After dominating the first quarter with 29-16, Phoenix’s men responded in the second quarter. A 31-13 score was equated to a five-point advantage at the break (47-42). And despite Giannis Antetokounmpo’s recital, the Suns were still on the same line as the Bucks at the start of the home stretch before letting go under the blows of the Antetokounmpo-Middleton duo.
Chris Paul did not fail to be worthy, scoring 26 points at 11 out 19 on shots. Devin Booker, however, was too slow, shooting a terrible 8 of 22 shots for 19 points. DeAndre Ayton struggled against Giannis Antetokounmpo and had to settle for 12 points at 6 rebounds and 4 of 12. The Suns still need to win the first NBA title in their storied history.
