NBA Finals 2021: Milwaukee Bucks return to reign 50 years later

In the 2021 NBA Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks ended their long ring drought by beating the Phoenix Suns (2-4), who started the playoffs with a 2-0 lead and had home-court advantage. With the exception of Khris Middleton, who was key in important moments of the final, the man was Giannis Antetokounmpo, MVP, who from injury doubt finished the series with 50 points to lead the Bucks 50 years later to the championship

Chris Paul, who missed a chance to win the ring, and Devin Booker, led the Suns in the first two games of the final, and history put them in a privileged position to take the final series, but from here the Bucks took control of the playoffs and chained four consecutive victories in an unassailable way, led by a majestic Antetokounmpo, who started the series as doubtful because of a knee injury, and his faithful squire Chris Middleton.
