Milwaukee Bucks Reign as Eastern Conference Champions after winning game 6 vs Hawks
If there was one match wherein the Milwaukee Bucks wanted their entire team to step up and play as a unit, it was this game. Wherein the Atlanta Hawks once again made a late surge and closed the gap to only 6 points. But with Holiday playing the primary ball-handler, there was no turning back for the away team who fought their way to the top.
