Bucks All 50th Team results to be announced on ‘Classic Nights’
Six ‘Classic Nights’ – including the Return to the MECCA game – highlight the Milwaukee Bucks promotional calendar for the team’s 50th Anniversary season.

The ‘Classic Nights’ begin on Oct. 26 when the Bucks host the Boston Celtics at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena.
