It had been 50 years since the Milwaukee Bucks could call themselves NBA champions, but 50 points from Giannis Antetokounmpo helped end that drought.
The Bucks’ two-time NBA MVP led the way as Milwaukee beat the Phoenix Suns, 105-98, at home in Game 6 of the NBA Finals Tuesday and won the second league title in franchise history.
The Suns, who got 26 points from all-star guard Chris Paul, will have to wait at least another year for the first championship in their history despite getting off to a 2-0 start in the NBA Finals. They were badly out-rebounded, 59-41, by the bigger Bucks in Game 6.
The MVP award went to Giannis Antetokounmpo.
