The Milwaukee Bucks defeated Phoenix Suns 123-119 to take a 3-2 series lead in the NBA Finals on Saturday and they are now one win away from an NBA championship.

The Bucks can win the franchise’s first championship since 1971 on their home court. The teams will head back to Milwaukee to face off in Game 6 on July 20.

Suns guard Devin Booker had a back-to-back 40-point game but that wasn’t enough as Jrue Holiday (27 pts and 13 assists), Khris Middleton (29 pts) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (32 pts) propelled the Bucks to a comeback victory and take the lead in the finals.

The Greek Freak, with nine rebounds and six assists, including a game-sealing alley-oop dunk was the man of the match.

The 26-year-old two-time MVP is now one win from an NBA championship.

 

The NBA finals series until now:

Game 4 of NBA finals

The Milwaukee Bucks secured a second straight win over the Suns in Game 4 of the NBA finals at Fiserv Forum on Wednesday 109-103 to tie the NBA finals.

Khris Middleton who scored 40 points was the man of the match for the Bucks. An absolutely unreal performance from him down the stretch. His jumpers and and-1 were absolutely crucial for Milwaukee.

Game 3 of NBA finals

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Milwaukee Bucks to an impressive win, by the score of 120-100, against the Suns in Game 3 of the NBA finals at Fiserv Forum Sunday night.

Antetokounmpo finished with 41 points, 13 rebounds and six assists in 38 minutes of action. It was an extremely impressive performance from the two-time MVP, but he also had his fair share of help.

Game 2 of NBA finals

The Phoenix Suns beat the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 of the NBA final last Thursday by 118-108, despite Giannis Antetokounmpo finishing with 42 points, 12 rebounds and four assists.

Devin Booker was the key in Game 2 for the Suns. He finished with a team-high 31 points on 12-of-25 shooting from the field. He was 7-for-12 from three-point range. He added five rebounds and six assists to his stat line.

Game 1 of NBA finals

A still-recovering Giannis Antetokounmpo was on the losing side of the NBA finals game 1 as the Milwaukee Bucks were defeated last Tuesday by the Phoenix Suns 105-118.

Chris Paul led the way with yet another stellar postseason outing. He scored 32 points to lead the Suns, but Devin Booker wasn’t far behind with 27 of his own.
