The NBA is one step closer to announcing a new champion for the 2021 season.

After the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Atlanta Hawks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Milwaukee cemented its place in the NBA Finals.

Joining the Finals from the Western Conference are the Phoenix Suns, who have defeated the Los Angeles Lakers, Denver Nuggets and L.A. Clippers in the postseason.

Phoenix has never won an NBA title in franchise history, while the Bucks haven’t lifted the title since 1971.

Milwaukee’s biggest concern entering Game 1 is the health of star Giannis Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo is dealing with a knee injury he suffered recently against the Hawks and is day-to-day.

Game 1 tips off on Tuesday, July 6 at 6:00 p.m. PST.

Both regular-season games went to the closing seconds, but the Suns won both games by one point each. Phoenix won the first game, 125-124, and the second game, 128-127.
