For the first time in 50 years. The Milwaukee Bucks are NBA champions. They finish off the Suns in Game 6 by a final of 105-98.
Giannis had one of the best close out game performances in the history of NBA. Hitting shot after shot, including 17-19 from the foul line. 50 points!!!! He was voted MVP. And deserves every bit of it.
As for the Suns, they came up short. Losing four straight games after leading the series 2-0. I thought it was just their year. Chris Paul was finally going to get a ring. But in the closing moments in back to back games. They just crumbled. Missed shots, turnovers, lackluster defense. This young team fought. But the moment was just too big.
