Antetokounmpo registered 50 points (16-25 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 17-19 FT), 14 rebounds, five blocks and two assists across 42 minutes in Tuesday's Championship Game 6 win over the Suns. Antetokounmpo delivered one of the best games of his career -- which is saying a lot for a two-time MVP winner -- when the Bucks needed him the most, as he was nearly flawless in the win that gave Milwaukee its first title in 50 years. The star forward, who was named Finals MVP after averaging 35.2 points, 13.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.8 blocks and 1.2 steals per game in the series against the Suns, was nearly perfect on both ends of the court and came up big for the Bucks time and time again, whether it was blocking shots, cooperating defensively or carrying the team offensively. The best proof of his impact is the fact that he scored nearly half of his team's total points. Without a doubt, Antetokounmpo should be a first-round pick in most drafts for next season since he continues to establish himself as one of the most dominant players in the league as well as being an absolute fantasy stud in all formats.
Antetokounmpo totaled 32 points (14-23 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-11 FT), nine rebounds, six assists and zero turnovers across 41 minutes in a Game 5 victory over Phoenix on Saturday. In a critical Game 5, Antetokounmpo once again came up big for Milwaukee, leading the team in both points and rebounds. Whereas his signature moment in Game 4 was an epic blocked shot with just over a minute remaining, the play that will be replayed most often from Saturday's victory is Antetokounmpo's jaw-dropping dunk off a steal and lob pass by Jrue Holiday, giving Milwaukee a three-point lead with 13.5 seconds left in the game. Aside from some struggles from the free-throw line -- Antetokounmpo was only 4-for-11 from the charity stripe Saturday -- the two-time MVP has been nearly unstoppable through five Finals contests, posting per-game averages of 32.2 points, 13.0 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 blocks while shooting 61.2 percent from the field. He'll try to lead the Bucks to an NBA title in Game 6 on Tuesday.
Antetokounmpo had 26 points (11-19 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-8 FT), 14 rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two blocks in Wednesday's Game 4 win over the Suns. Coming off of back-to-back 40-10 games, Antetokounmpo took his time easing into this one, and while he wasn't as aggressive as he was in Games 2 and 3, he still had a profound impact as the Bucks evened the series. Down the stretch, Milwaukee turned to Khris Middleton for multiple clutch baskets, but it was Antetokounmpo's block on a Deandre Ayton alley-oop attempt with 1:14 remaining that will be remembered most. It was one of two blocks on the night for the two-time MVP, who now has at least one swat in five of his last six contests. With the series shifting back to Phoenix for Game 5 on Saturday, Antetokounmpo will look to secure his fifth double-double in as many Finals appearances.
Antetokounmpo tallied 41 points (14-23 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 13-17 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists and one steal across 38 minutes Sunday in the Bucks' 120-100 win over the Suns in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. With his team facing a 2-0 deficit as the series moved to Milwaukee, Antetokounmpo overwhelmed the Suns from the opening tip and didn't let up throughout the night, allowing the Bucks to win their first NBA Finals game since 1974. Despite missing the last two games of the Bucks' Eastern Conference Finals series victory over the Hawks with a hyperextended left knee and taking a questionable tag into Game 1 of the NBA Finals, Antetokounmpo has looked as good as ever. Through three games, he's averaging 34.3 points (on 62.5 percent shooting from the field), 14.0 boards, 4.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks in 37.7 minutes. After going for 42 points and 12 rebounds in the Bucks' Game 2 loss, Antetokounmpo joined Shaquille O'Neal as the only players in league history to churn out back-to-back 40-10 games in the NBA Finals.
Antetokounmpo mustered 42 points (15-22 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 11-18 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and a steal across 40 minutes in Thursday's loss against the Suns. Antetokounmpo looked completely healthy from the knee injury that sidelined two games in the previous series and that limited him to just 35 minutes in Game 1, and that was noticeable both on the stat sheet and on his movements. He suffered from a huge lack of support in this game, though, as only one other Milwaukee player scored more than 15 points, and the offense as a whole struggled badly. This loss can't be placed on Antetokounmpo's shoulders, but he'll have to find a way to play even better in Game 3 now that the series will head back to Milwaukee on Sunday.
