Bucks 50-Year Drought Ends with a Championship Behind 50 from Giannis
By admin - July 21, 2021
The Milwaukee Bucks have been enjoying every moment of their victory against the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals. After having a title win since 1971, it’s well-deserved that they’re celebrating in style. Here are the highlights:
- The Finals MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo, had an NBA Finals MVP trophy in one hand, the Larry O’Brien Trophy in another, and a cigar right in front of him. He had a stellar performance with 50 points, 14 rebounds, and five blocked shots.
- Antetokounmpo had a commanding performance through his games with at least 3 of them scoring 40 points and 10 rebounds.
- He stepped us his game ten-fold, especially when it came to free-throw shots. He made 17 out of 19, which is amazing due to 55.6% in the postseason.
- The last championship The Bucks won was in 1971 when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (known then as Lew Alcindor) held it down for the team.
- Khris Middleton said that this championship means everything for the city.
- They really brought the city out with 65,000 packed into the Deer District outside. Before the game ended, you had roaring fans inside screaming, “Bucks in 6! Bucks in 6!’
- Phoenix Suns coach Monty Williams admits the pain that goes with defeat after a long season to win the NBA title. Despite the loss, he’s grateful for the chance to get to this point.
