Antetokounmpo caps extraordinary postseason as Finals MVP
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo delivered arguably the best performance of his career at an ideal moment and now can add an NBA Finals MVP award to his two regular-season MVP trophies.
Antetokounmpo was an easy choice for the MVP honor after collecting 50 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks in a 105-98 Game 6 victory.
He did all that while dealing with a hyperextended left knee that prevented him from playing in the last two games of the Eastern Conference finals against the Atlanta Hawks.
