The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Phoenix Suns at the recently concluded NBA Finals, winning their first title in 50 years. It is the first NBA crown since 1971 for the team, who won the series 4-2 with a score of 105-98.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 50 of those winning points. The 26-year-old is the seventh player in NBA history to have made 50 points in a Finals game. Out of the series, it’s the third game where he got at least 10 rebounds and 40 points.
Another achievement for Antetokounmpo is collecting a regular season MVP, NBA defensive player of the year, and NBA finals MVP in the same year. It’s something that’s only been done by two other legends: Hakeem Olajuwon and Michael Jordan.
This year’s NBA Finals was played in front of fans, with some waiting five hours before the gates opened just to make sure they could get seats.
