After an incredibly exciting 105-98 win over the Phoenix Suns, the Milwaukee Bucks have become the NBA Champions for the first time in 50 years.
It didn’t look good for the Bucks at halftime being down 47-42 due to a disastrous second quarter, scoring only 13 points in 12 minutes, shooting 4-of-20 from the field. The next two quarters saw the Bucks reach closer and closer to victory until finally it was theirs.
It all came off the back of a fantastic performance from Giannis Antetokounpo, who scored 50 points along with 14 rebounds, two assists, and five blocks.
It was risky signing that five-year deal with the Bucks but Antetokounpo should be happy with the results now. Ex-NBA player Richard Jefferson told ESPN’s ‘Get Up’ that, “It’s going to mean so much more for him because he did it the most difficult way. To do it where you got drafted, to do it in a small market…the fact that Giannis did it the hardest way possible that not a lot of guys do.”
The Bucks took on a bunch of non-lottery picks and managed to transform them all into MVPs and All-Stars.
The future looks bright for the Bucks.
