In a magical season, the Milwaukee Bucks won their first NBA championship in franchise history. The Bucks finished with a league-best record. They were powered by MVP finalist Giannis Antetokounmpo, who led the team to its historic win.

The Bucks cruised past the Chicago Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers en route to the conference finals. They then defeated the Miami Heat in six games for their first Eastern Conference title since 1974.

In a June playoff matchup against the Golden State Warriors, Milwaukee trailed 3-1 and faced elimination heading into Game 6 at Oracle Arena. Down by as many as 17 points early in the third quarter, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had 35 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists in the game, got things started for the Bucks with a dunk off of a pass from Khris Middleton.

The Bucks matched up with the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals. The two teams danced through six grilling close games, but it was Giannis who led Milwaukee to a victory by scoring the most important shots in overtime to cruise over Phoenix Suns in the series.

Overall, it was a special season for the Bucks as they won their first championship since 1971.
