Milwaukee Bucks reach NBA Finals


The Milwaukee Bucks are returning to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1974 after Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday combined for 59 points in a 118-107 victory over the host Atlanta Hawks, wrapping up a 4-2 triumph in the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday night.

Despite having to play a second straight game without injured Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks earned the right to face Western Conference champions the Phoenix Suns in a best-of-seven series Tuesday night in Arizona.
