The Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers have had many memorable contests throughout the years, dating back to the 1970s when their roster was headlined by young center Lew Alcindor, now known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Since then, the teams have faced off several times, including for 9 different playoff series – the most recent of which, the 2001 Eastern Conference Championship, went seven games and led to the only NBA Finals appearance of Sixers legend Allen Iverson.
In all, the 76ers hold a 29-20 record against the Bucks in postseason play. Now, when these teams go head-to-head, it’s must-see TV, as two-time NBA MVP and 2021 NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo takes on 2022-23 NBA MVP and two-time NBA scoring champion, Joel Embiid.
The Sixers and Bucks faced off on four occasions during the 2022-23 regular season. The two teams split the series, with each team winning two of the four matchups, one at home and one on the road. In their March 4 victory over the Bucks, Embiid, Maxey and Harden combined for 57.
The Sixers and Bucks face off in one more game on March 14 in Milwaukee to wrap up their season series. Their first road matchup, as well as the season opener for both teams, resulted in a very close win for the Bucks with a final score of 118-117. Their second face off on February 24 resulted in another win for the Bucks. Stay tuned to see Maxey and team take on the Bucks on March 14!
