Bucks seek first title since 1971 vs. Suns

A lot has changed since the Milwaukee Bucks last won an NBA Championship, but the feelings from lost opportunities could disappear Tuesday night at the Fiserv Forum with a game six win over the Phoenix Suns.

 

The Bucks have not won a title since 1971 when they toppled the now renamed San Francisco (now Golden State) Warriors and Baltimore Bullets (now Washington Wizards) to become the fastest expansion team in professional sports to win a league championship. 

 

The Bucks put themselves in a position to clinch the championship in front of their own fans with a 123-119 win against the Suns in Phoenix on Saturday. The Bucks had four players score in double figures with Giannis Antetokounmpo (32), Khris Middleton (29), and Jrue Holiday (27) all scoring at least 25 points. The Bucks defense also had to weather the hot shooting Devin Booker, who scored 40 points in the Suns loss. 

 

With a win, the Bucks could become the fifth team in NBA history to win the Finals after falling in a 2-0 series hole. They will do so in front of a capacity crowd inside the Fiserv Forum and potentially 65,000 people outside in the Deer District. The organization announced plans to expand the district's capacity from 25,000 on Monday.

 

Tuesday's game begins at 8 p.m.
