Giannis Antetokounmpo will be eager to inspire Milwaukee Bucks to a win over Phoenix Suns in the National Basketball Association (NBA) Finals Games Six at the Fiserv Forum on July 21.

The superstar played a vital role in helping the Bucks secure a 123-119 victory over the Suns in Game Five which was played at Footprint Center in Phoenix, the USA on July 18.

Having had his injuries woes in the play-offs, Antetokounmpo returned in time for the finals, and in his Finals debut on July 5, he recorded 20 points and 17 rebounds in a 118-108 loss in Game 1.

The highly-rated small forward then registered back-to-back games with at least 40 points and 10 rebounds in a Game 2 loss and a Game 3 victory.
 
Therefore, Antetokounmpo joined Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 as the only players to reach those numbers in consecutive Finals games.
 
Antetokounmpo, who won back-to-back NBA Most Valuable Player Awards in 2019 and 2020, finished with 26 points along with 14 rebounds and eight assists in Game 4 on July 13.

The Greek Freak says they cannot afford to relax as they prepare for Game Six and he urged his teammates not to underestimate the Suns. 
 
"But the job is not done. We have to realize that. We have got to stay in the present. It doesn't mean we are going to go back home and win Game 6," Antetokounmpo said. 
 
"It means a lot. But I can't get too carried away. I have to stay in the present. I can't worry about the outcome. We know what the deal is. 
 
"It's one game away from being an NBA champ, being in the history of this game, being always there. Nobody can take that away from you. It's going to be big."
