Bucks knock out Hawks to qualify for first Finals since 1974

Bucks knock out Hawks to qualify for first Finals since 1974

With their leader Giannis Antetokounmpo injured, the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Atlanta Hawks 118-107 on Saturday and sealed, 47 years later, their return to the NBA Finals, in which they will face the Phoenix Suns.

With this triumph, the Bucks finished these Eastern Conference finals by 4 wins to 2 and will start on Tuesday the final battle for the ring against the Suns, champions of the West.

Guard Khris Middleton, with 32 points, and guard Jrue Holiday, with 27 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists, made up for the absence of Antetokounmpo, whose presence in his long-awaited first Finals is in doubt due to his knee injury.
