Milwaukee Bucks Defeat Atlanta Hawks To Reach NBA Finals

As the old saying goes: “No pain lasts 100 years and nobody can withstand it”. On Saturday, the Milwaukee Bucks knocked off the Atlanta Hawks to become Eastern Conference champions, which will put them in the NBA Finals for the first time since 1974.

In Game 6, the Bucks got a valuable 107-118 away win that allowed them to take the series 4-2.

The two big “pillars” that sustained this victory were Khris Middleton (who contributed 32 points, seven rebounds and four assists) and Jrue Holiday (who provided 27 points, nine assists and nine rebounds).

In front of them was a decimated team that suffered too much from the absence of their main star Giannis Antetokounmpo, who missed the game with a knee injury.

The Bucks were superior from the start and, despite the Hawks’ resistance, took the first quarter 24-28.

Afterwards, both teams slowed down a bit, the game evened out and the second quarter ended with a 19-19 draw.

Suddenly, however, the Bucks turned into a steamroller and took the third quarter 29-44.

The Hawks, led by Cameron Reddish (21 points, three assists and three rebounds) took the final quarter 35-27, but it was not enough.

Now, the Bucks will face the Western Conference champion Phoenix Suns. Game 1 will take place on Wednesday.
