One of the most unorthodox seasons in league history is officially in the books as the Milwaukee Bucks knocked off the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals to win their first championship since 1971. Bucks franchise star Giannis Antetokounmpo was crowned Finals MVP after putting up 50 points, 14 rebounds, five blocks and two steals. Khris Middleton also added on 17 points, five assists and five rebounds in the win, capping off a spectacular playoff run for Milwaukee.

Although the Suns lost, the journey to the Finals was still special for this young squad. Phoenix got there by besting the Los Angeles Clippers in six games in the Western Conference finals to advance to its first Finals in nearly three decades. It marked the first appearance for Suns point guard Chris Paul, who had to wait over a decade and a half to finally make it there. 

Milwaukee dispatched the pesky Atlanta Hawks in six games in the ECF, despite losing Antetokounmpo to a knee injury, while also ousting the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat earlier in the playoffs. The Bucks got it done in their first Finals since 1974 when they were led by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Below is a full rundown of all the playoff action, from the first round through the Finals.
