The Eastern Conference Finals have come to an end and the Milwaukee Bucks were the lucky one's to punch their ticket to the NBA Finals and will now be facing th Suns for a championship.
With a 118-107 victory, the Bucks were still missing Giannis Antetokounmpo, while the Hawks got Trae Young back only to be sent packing again.
Take a look at how this do or die match came about.
Both teams had rocky starts with tons of turnovers and bad shots but the Milwaukee Bucks took control first. Thanks to Jrue Holiday, who stepped up again in Giannis' absence and had 8 of the Bucks' first 28 points.
Midway through the first quarter, Bobby Portis and Brook Lopez joined forces to attack Hawks in the paint. They joined forces for an alley-oop that gave Milwaukee a 15-4 lead.
Hawks started off super slow. Young made his first basket in a driving layup and immediately fell to the floor. So with 3:45 left on the clock for the first frame to end, Trae was making his way out.
Jeff Teague sunk back to back three pointers in the second quarter for Milwaukee, while Pat Connaughton showed off his fancy footwork to slide past the Hawks' many defenders.
Trae checked in again with around 9 minutes left in the second. He got back into action with the in-and-out dribble to keep the Bucks in arms reach.
In the third quarter, the Bucks were on a mission to take a gigantic lead and Middleton helped doing that . In just four minutes, he had poured in 16 points on the scoreboard.
In the fourth quarter, the Hawks put all their energy to catch up. Cam came with 6 three pointers that were the most any bench player made in the Hawks but it wasn't enough and the Bucks ascended to the NBA Finals.
