Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 50 points as the Milwaukee Bucks claimed their first NBA title for 50 years with a 105-98 victory over the Phoenix Suns last week.

The Bucks’ 4-2 series win was sealed in front of a 17,000 crowd as 65,000 celebrated outside the Fiserv Forum on Tuesday (20).

They are only the fifth team to win the best-of-seven finals series after losing their first two matches.

“I’m happy I was able to do it with this team for Milwaukee,” said Antetokounmpo. The Suns were seeking a first NBA crown in their 53-year history, having also lost NBA Finals series in 1976 and 1993.
