Milwaukee Bucks Clinch NBA Championship For 1st Time In 50 Years

On Tuesday night, the Milwaukee Bucks won the NBA Finals and ended a 50-year drought without a championship title, beating out the Phoenix Suns in Game 6 of the series.

The Bucks were led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, the star of the team who put up a legendary 50 points to clinch the win and the MVP trophy for himself.
