NBA Playoffs: The Milwaukee Bucks Reach the Finals

The Milwaukee Bucks got their first World Cup Finals ticket since 1974! With 118:107 in Game 6, the 3-Seed of the Eastern Conference defeated the Atlanta Hawks – even without their top player.

Superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo withdrew again with knee issues, but his co-stars took over. Khris Middleton led Milwaukee in scoring (32 points, 10/22 FG, 7 assists, 7 spins) and made the initial decision almost alone in the third quarter with 23 points. Jrue Holiday scored 27 points, 9 rebounds, 9 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks. Four other Bucks hit double figures, including Brooke Lopez with 13 points.

Trae Young is back on the Hawks, but base still has ankle problems (14 points, 4/17, 9 assists, 5 turns). Bogdan Bogdanovic (20) and Cam Reddish (21, 6/7 triples) were strong, while John Collins (13 and 11 rebounds) had doubles.

Milwaukee has now reached the Finals for the first time since 1974 and will face the Phoenix Suns there. The first match will be played on Wednesday night.

Upon his return, Young initially returned with Lou Williams, otherwise there were no changes to either side, so Portis once again appeared as Giannis’ replacement.

Milwaukee started the game better, which was mainly due to the area’s constant offensive. Holiday set the tone with 7 points in a 15:4 start, but thanks to Bogdanovic the Hawks came back quickly and after Young’s And-1 the difference was only two points. The next few minutes belonged to Lopez, who added 6 points to 8-0. Gallinari hit thirty, it was 28:24 for Milwaukee after twelve minutes.

The second quarter started again problematic for the Hawks, who only bumped into one of the first nine litters. On the other hand, former Hawk Jeff Teague sank three times and gave the Bucks a 9-point lead. However, Milwaukee left many opportunities to launch, with seven turnovers this quarter alone. As a result, the interval was only 47:43.
