Milwaukee Bucks Wins and Losses
The Milwaukee Bucks have had a mixed bag of results so far this season. They’ve shown they can compete with the best teams in the league, but they’ve also lost some head-scratching games. Overall, the Bucks are 14-12 and sit in sixth place in the Eastern Conference.
One of the biggest reasons for the Bucks’ success has been the play of Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak is putting up MVP-caliber numbers and is carrying the team on both ends of the floor. Other key contributors include Khris Middleton, Malcolm Brogdon, and Eric Bledsoe.
The biggest issue for Milwaukee has been their inconsistency. They’ve looked like a top team at times, but then they’ll lose to an inferior opponent. It’s something that needs to be fixed if the Bucks want to make a run at the conference title.
Right now, it’s hard to predict what kind of team Milwaukee will be come playoff time. They have all the pieces to make a deep run, but they haven’t put it all together yet. If they can figure things out, they could be a dangerous team come April/May.

Milwaukee Bucks Single Game Records
The Milwaukee Bucks are an American professional basketball team based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Bucks compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of the league’s Eastern Conference Central Division. The team was founded in 1968 as an expansion team, and play at the Fiserv Forum.
Former U.S. Senator Herb Kohl was the long-time owner of the team, but on April 16, 2014, a group led by billionaire hedge fund managers Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry purchased a majority interest in the franchise from Kohl, a sale which was approved by the NBA Board of Governors on May 15. The new owners appointed Peter Feigin as the fifth president of franchise history on May 20. The 1971–72 season saw star guard Kareem Abdul-Jabbar win his first MVP Award en route to leading Milwaukee to its first NBA Finals appearance since 1957–58 (when they were still known as the Hawks).
In those Finals, which featured a now-famous “Flu Game” by Michael Jordan, Chicago defeated Milwaukee 4 games to 2. In spite of this early success, it would take until 1986 before another playoff berth would come Milwaukee’s way; between 1972 and 1986 inclusive, they finished no higher than third place in their division. One year after that streak finally ended with a return to playoff action under head coach Don Nelson, Scott Skiles took over as head coach for what would be his only season with the club before being replaced himself just 33 games into his tenure by then-general manager Larry Harris due to differences with management about how to rebuild following several losing seasons.
