For the first time since 2001, the Milwaukee Bucks are one win away from playing in the NBA Finals.
Playing without Giannis Antetokounmpo, the team goes wire-to-wire to defeat the Atlanta Hawks 123 to 112 at Fiserv Forum in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Brook Lopez led all scoring with 33 points, followed by Khris Middleton with 26, Jrue Holiday with 25, and Bobby Portis with 22.
Game 6 of the series is in Atlanta Saturday evening. If the Hawks win, Game 7 will be back at Fiserv Forum Monday evening.
