Giannis Antetokounmpo has joined the likes of LeBron James and Michael Jordan to become one of just eight players to score more than 50 points in an NBA Finals.

 

The ‘Greek Freak’ led his team as they defeated the Phoenix Suns to claim their first NBA title since 1971, winning games six 105-98 to seal a 4-2 series win, becoming just the fifth team to win the best-of-seven series after losing the first two games.

 

Antetokounmpo put in one of the best performances of his career to carry the Bucks to the win after also being named the regular-season MVP and Defensive Player of the Year.
