The Milwaukee Bucks need just one more win over the Phoenix Sons to claim this season’s NBA title. His last championship win was in 1971, and he will look forward to ending the drought this year when he returns home for Game Six on Wednesday, July 21.
After a 123-119 victory in Game 5 against the Sons, the Boxes took a 3-2 lead in the series.
It was a success, with the Sun taking a 16-point lead in the second quarter. However, in the second half, the box bounced back, led by “The Greek Freak” Gianz Antitocomppo, who scored 32 points and nine rebounds. Chris Middleton also returned 29 points and seven rebounds overall. Jario Holiday won by 27 points, making it a real effort for the team to make money.
“We have to keep playing good basketball. We kept our composure, we kept fighting. It’s the NBA Finals, so you have to give what you got. And the team did it tonight. “As a reference,” Antitocampo said after the match BBC Sport
Devon Booker tried to return late, but his 40 points were not enough to stop the idols. Chris Paul also fought bravely till the end, scoring 21 points and 11 assists. However, they came close, while leading with a lead of 56-1 seconds, reaching a single point at 120-119.
However, in the final moments of the match, Holiday made a major theft to Booker and fed Antitocompo, who spoke in the trash with 13.5 seconds left in the clock. He missed a free throw but managed to regain possession before sending Middleton to the line with suspicion. He put Scorebank 4 points ahead of one of his two free throws to end the match.
Milwaukee will host Game 6 as a favorite to win, but the Sons will do their best to push the series to the wire with a possible Game 7.
