The Bucks will win their first NBA title in 50 years. Giannis will assuredly win Finals MVP, and deservedly so. He has put together one of the best games, and series, in Finals history. He will finish the game with 50 points. Just an epic performance.

Khris Middleton hasn't had his best game. But he's hit a couple of big shots down the stretch when the Bucks needed it. He's up to 15 points on the game.

More NBA history for Giannis. He's the first player in NBA history with 40 points, 10 rebounds and 5 blocks in a Finals game. Crazy impressive stat.

Giannis is having a block party by himself. He's up to 5 blocks on the game — to go along with 12 rebounds and 43 points. He's putting together an all-time performance.

Just like Portis has given the Bucks some big minutes off of the bench, Frank Kaminsky has done the same for Phoenix. He has 6 points and 2 rebounds in 9 minutes in the game.

Bobby Portis is hitting some big shots down the stretch for the Bucks in this game. He's up to 14 points on 5 of 8 shooting. He's giving the Bucks a big boost off of the bench — something they desperately needed given the fact that some of their starters not named Giannis have struggled to score.

Giannis was absolutely incredible in that third quarter. He scored 20 points on 11 shots, and he knocked down all 7 of his free throws. He's leaving it all out on the floor tonight. Nothing you can do but respect it.

Three quarters of action are in the books. This one has been a battle, and it's all knotted up at 77. Giannis leads the game with 37 points. He's been absolutely incredible for Milwaukee, but he'll need a little bit of help from Khris Middleton (11 points) and Jrue Holiday (9 points) if they're going to pull out a win.

Balance, grit put Bucks on verge of 1st title in 50 year

July 20, 2021

MILWAUKEE | Giannis Antetokounmpo believes it’s the tenacity of the Bucks that has Milwaukee a game away from its first championship in a half century.

That persistence has enabled the Bucks to rally from a 2-0 deficit in the NBA Finals. The Bucks lead the Phoenix Suns 3-2 as they return home to seek a potential title-clinching victory in Game 6 on Tuesday.

“I feel like we don’t stop,” Antetokounmpo said. “I’ve been a part of different teams. Usually when you’re down 15 or 16 or whatever, down 0-2 or whatever the case might be, you kind of like stop. You kind of like, you kind of stop competing in a way. But I feel like this team, we don’t do that.”

The Bucks took the finals lead with a 123-119 Game 5 victory in Phoenix that showcased their impressive balance.

Milwaukee averaged 120.1 points per game in the regular season to become the NBA’s highest-scoring team since 1983-84, when the Denver Nuggets and San Antonio Spurs both exceeded that average. But they’ve pulled ahead in this series by delivering memorable defensive plays.

In their 109-103 Game 3 victory, the Bucks owned a two-point lead when Antetokounmpo blocked a Deandre Ayton dunk attempt with just over a minute left. They were still up only two when Jrue Holiday stole the ball from Chris Paul to spark a fastbreak that resulted in a Khris Middleton layup with 27.2 seconds remaining.

Holiday delivered again Saturday after the Suns slashed a 108-94 fourth-quarter deficit to a single point. Holiday stripped the ball from Devin Booker, dribbled downcourt and threw a lob to Antetokounmpo, who dunked while getting fouled with 13.5 seconds left.

“Honestly, it was great team defense,” Holiday said. “I feel like we knew Booker wanted to take that last shot and played great defense on him and made him turn his back, and he turned right into me. I guess I was just in the right place at the right time.”

The Bucks paid a heavy price to acquire Holiday as they tried to take the next step after posting the NBA’s best regular-season record in 2018-19 and 2019-20 but failing to reach the finals each of those years.

Holiday responded by earning first-team All-Defensive honors. He’s played outstanding defense throughout the finals but struggled to shoot before coming through with 27 points and 13 assists Saturday.

His presence alongside Antetokounmpo and Middleton enables the Bucks to win games in a variety of ways.

The Bucks have scored at least 120 points in six playoff games, but they probably never would have gotten this far without gutting out an 86-83 Game 3 victory over the Brooklyn Nets after falling behind 2-0 in that second-round series. They shot 57.5% on Saturday but also made the game-clinching steal after Phoenix rallied.

“I do think that we always have our mindset on defense,” Holiday said. “But when we get rolling on both ends, I feel like that’s where we kind of get into our groove.”

They’re in that groove now and are a win away from accomplishing something this franchise hasn’t done since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson helped deliver Milwaukee a championship in 1971.

“But the job is not done,” Antetokounmpo said. “We have to realize that. We have got to stay in the present.”

BROTHERLY CONCERN

Antetokounmpo celebrated the Bucks’ victory Saturday by communicating via FaceTime with older brother and reserve forward Thanasis Antetokounmpo, who wasn’t at the arena due to NBA health and safety protocols.

Thanasis Antetokounmpo generally is the most demonstrative cheerleader among Bucks reserves. Giannis could only imagine how his brother reacted during Game 5.

“He’s probably screaming in front of the TV,” Giannis Antetokounmpo said. “Probably in the last possession, he probably took his shirt off and started playing defense, sweating, jumping on the bed.”

SHOWTIME FOR BUCKS EMPLOYEES

While the two teams traveled on Sunday, Bucks and Fiserv Forum president Peter Feigin invited his team’s staff employees to attend a screening of “Space Jam: A New Legacy” at a suburban Milwaukee theater.

The film is directed by Malcolm Lee, who has been a good friend of Feigin since they were both 10 years old. They grew up in New York playing basketball together with Feigin’s twin brother, Daniel Feigin.

Lee attended Game 4 in Milwaukee.

“As coincidence happens, it’s probably one of the biggest period of days in both of our lives with the Bucks in the NBA Finals and he’s premiering his first big tentpole movie,” Feigin said.
