The Milwaukee bucks by Giannis Antetokounmpo were proclaimed this Tuesday NBA champions, their first title in fifty years, after defeating 4-2 in the Finals at the Phoenix suns. An awesome Giannis Antetokounmpo, with 50 points and 14 rebounds, defeated Arizona tonight (105-98) to give the Bucks the second ring in their history after the one they achieved in 1971 with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson at the helm. Antetokounmpo was voted Finals MVP after a portentous and historic performance throughout the series.
The Bucks lost 0-2 after the first two meetings in Phoenix (USA), but they rebuilt masterfully until adding four consecutive victories that gave them the title honoring the rallying cry of their fans: “Bucks in Six” (” Bucks win in six games “). The sixth and final game featured the excitement and tension of the big nights as the Bucks and Suns they reached the last quarter with a tie at 77. In a very tight finish, Khris Middleton (17 points) joined Antetokounmpo, the great hero of the night, to guide the hosts to victory.
The Bucks also benefited from the bad game of Devin Booker, extraordinary in these playoffs for the Suns but who had an unfortunate performance in this sixth game (19 points, with 8 of 22 shooting, and 6 turnovers). Chris Paul, who at 36 played and lost his first Finals, was the main reference for the Suns with 26 points and 5 assists.
The city of Milwaukee (USA) turned upside down on Tuesday with theirs as thousands of people gathered around the Fiserv Forum – packed to the brim – to follow the game on giant screens.
