Milwaukee Bucks fans waited 50 years for their team to win a second NBA Championship. When the moment finally came, it could not have been any sweeter.
“And that’ll do it. It’s over. The Bucks have done it. After a half-century, the Milwaukee Bucks are NBA Champions once again!”
Milwaukee Bucks fans waited a long time to hear ABC’s Mike Breen utter those words at the end of Game 6 on Tuesday night.
65,000 strong went into an absolutely frenzy outside Fiserv Forum. Watch the Deer District erupt as the clock ticked down and the Bucks won the 2021 NBA Finals.
Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks to a 105-98 victory with the biggest game of his young career. Antetokounmpo scored a career playoff-best 50 points on 16-of-25 shooting and pulled down a game-high 14 rebounds. It’s an iconic performance even amongst the illustrious history of the NBA Finals. The two-time NBA MVP is just the seventh player in NBA history to notch a 50 point game in the Finals.
