Antetokounmpo had 50 points, 14 rebounds and five blocked shots as the Bucks beat the Phoenix Suns 105-98 on Tuesday night to win the series 4-2.
It was the third game this series with at least 40 points and 10 rebounds for Antetokounmpo, a dominant performance that in just his first appearance takes its place among some of the game’s greats.
He shot 16 for 25 from the field and made 17-of-19 free throws.
Chris Paul led the Suns with 26 points.
Devin Booker had 19 points but was 0-7 from the three-point line.
