1. Bucks win the 1971 NBA Championship.
Was there any question this would be number one on our list? It is, after all, the only NBA championship in Bucks’ history.
On April 30, 1971, Milwaukee secured the then-named Walter A. Brown Trophy thanks to a clean four-game sweep of the Baltimore Bullets. Milwaukee won their final six games of the playoffs and finished with a total playoff record of 12-2.
There wasn’t much dramatics in this final game of the 1970-71 season, as the Bucks built an early nine-point lead at the end of the first quarter. Milwaukee then built upon that lead, but outscoring the Bullets by four points in the second and holding a 13-point cushion at halftime.
The two teams played pretty even the rest of the way, with Milwaukee winning the game by 12 points, 118-106.
Abdul-Jabbar, Bob Dandridge and Robertson led the way for Milwaukee, combining for 78 total points, 25 rebounds and 22 assists. Talk about domination!
This game will forever go down as a part of Bucks’ lore and will be joined soon by a Larry O’Brien Trophy, hopefully.
