ANDl Tuesday, Milwaukee Bucks have dreamed of opportunity for half a century. They started the Finals down 0-2, but three consecutive victories have them with their second ring shot.

Milwaukee has only one ring on its palmars, but the party wasn’t at home, since in 1971 they swept the Baltimore Bullets, closing all visitors.

They had another chance to be champions in 1974, when they received Game 7 of the Finals against the Celtics, after Kareem Abdul-Jabbar forced the seventh and final, but Boston ruined the party.

Party that could be given in the new Fiserv Forum, where they are near perfect in the postseason, losing just one of 10 games, and the story puts them in a scenario in which all the teams have taken the title.

When a team has a 3-2 lead and receives Game 6 since the ABA-NBA union in 1976, the premises are 10-1, and the only team that didn’t win ended up doing so in seventh.

  1. 2008 Lakers 92-131 Celtics
  2. 2005 PISTONS 95-86 Spurs
  3. 2003 Nets 77-86 Spurs
  4. 2000 Pacers 111-116 Lakers
  5. 1997 Jazz 86-90 Bulls
  6. 1996 Sonics 75-87 Bulls
  7. 1992 Blazers 93-97 Bulls
  8. 1987 Celtics 93-106 Lakers
  9. 1986 Rockets 97-114 Celtics
  10. 1982 76ers 104-114 Lakers
  11. 1977: 76ers 107-109 Blazers

Only the Spurs in 2005 failed in Game 6, but they got the 81-74 ring 48 hours later.
