Giannis Antetokounmpo has made NBA history as the Milwaukee Bucks claimed their second ever NBA Championship with their 4-2 series win over the Phoenix Suns.

Defeating the Phoenix Suns 105-98 in the sixth and decisive game of the NBA Finals, the Bucks got their first championship since 1971.

Greek star Giannis Antetokounmpo made history as he finished the night with 50 points, becoming just the seventh player to ever hit that mark in a Finals game.

The Greek Freak was outstanding for the Bucks on the day, also getting 13 rebounds and being an overall dominating presence on the court. The emotional player broke down after the final buzzer, embracing his wife and young child.

Giannis was named MVP of the match.

“I want to thank Milwaukee for believing in me,” Antetokounmpo said after the victory. “I thank my teammates, they played hard every freaking game.

“I trusted this team. I wanted to do it here in this city, I wanted to do it with these guys so I’m happy. I’m happy I am able to get it done.”
