Milwaukee Bucks claimed a Game 6 118-107 victory in Atlanta over the Hawks to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1974.

The Bucks got up to a 22-point lead after an outstanding third-quarter performance, in which they made a 44-29 run with Khris Middleton scoring 23 of these points.

In the fourth quarter, the Hawks tried to get back in the game, however they fell short as Milwaukee made its way to the NBA Finals to face the Phoenix Suns.

Without Giannis Antetokounmpo available, Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday took over the Bucks offense with 32 and 27 points, respectively. Holiday also added nine rebounds and nine assists to conclude a wonderful performance.

For the Hawks, Cam Reddish had a great game with a career playoff-high with 21 points, on 6-of-7 shooting from deep, while Bogdan Bogdanovic added 20.

NBA Finals start on July 6 with Game 1 between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns.
