The Milwaukee Bucks only needs one more victory to claim their first NBA title since 1972 after winning against the Phoenix Suns, 123-119, in Game Five.

Giannis Antetokoumpo scored 32 points and Khris Middleton added 29 points for the Bucks to take a 3-2 lead over the Suns in the best-of-seven series.

Milwaukee overcame a 16-point deficit in the first half of the game and started the third quarter with a three-point advantage, 64-61.

The lead of the Bucks grew up to 14 points, 108-94, in the fourth quarter but the Suns managed to close the point gap, 120-119, with 56.6 seconds left in the clock.

A dunk by Antetokoumpo and a free throw by Middleton put an end to the leakage, and provided Milwaukee with a four-point cushion in order to win the game

Devin Booker finished with 40 points while Chris Paul registered 21 points and 11 rebounds for Phoenix.
