No Giannis, no problem for the Bucks in Game 5. Four different Bucks scored at least 20 points. Milwaukee was led in scoring by Brook Lopez, who put up 33 points despite going 0-2 from three-point range. Lopez displayed the size and power he was known for years ago, and he gave himself many high percentage baskets. He finished the game 14-18 from the field. Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday scored 26 and 25 points, respectively. The Bucks look primed for a trip to the NBA Finals.
The Hawks put up a good fight, but ultimately could not overcome their poor first quarter. Atlanta closed the gap to nine points by halftime, but they never got close enough to make it seem like the Bucks were losing control. The Hawks will need Trae Young to come back if they want a chance to force a Game 7.
