The Milwaukee Bucks outlasts Phoenix Suns 123-119 at Game 5 on Sunday to have control of the series as they dominate 3-2 at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona. They are now just one win away from their title of the Larry O’Brien Trophy.


Two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo earned 32 points with nine rebounds and provided six assists that included a game-sealing alley-oop dunk that helped his side to lead to a vicious victory over the opponent Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals.

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James attended the game to support Phoenix star Chris Paul and said: “I am here for CP”.

Defending Champions Lakers were eliminated by the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

The series started in favour of the Phoenix Suns, the champions of the Western Conference dominated initially at their home floor 2-0 but the Bucks managed to defend their home arena and tied the series 2-2 as both the teams succeeded in defending their floors until Game 5, which turned into a favourable lead for Milwaukee to have control the series.

With the triumph in Game 6, the Bucks can accomplish the franchise’s first championship since 1971 at their own Fiserv Forum. “Obviously, we know what the deal is,” said the Bucks star player Antetokounmpo who is just one win away from becoming the NBA champion.

Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday added perfection to Giannis, combined 88 points survived against Devin Booker’s game-high 40 points that weren’t sufficient for his side to lead against the Bucks.

Game 6 which is scheduled for July 21 on Wednesday at 6:30 am will decide if the Bucks can succeed to be the NBA champions or the Suns take over the floor to force a Game 7.
