76ers vs Milwaukee Bucks
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. Two-time NBA MVP and 2021 NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo were slated to take on Joel Embiid and the 76ers three times in the 2021-22 regular season, including one more game at The Center in South Philly.

The shorthanded Philadelphia 76ers were visited by the Bucks on November 9, 2021 and pushed reigning 2-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee for a full 48 minutes. Without Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, Seth Curry, and three other rotation players, the Sixers were led by second-year point guard Tyrese Maxey, who was red hot in the first quarter, dropping 17 of his team-high 31 points. In 24 minutes off the bench, Georges Niang matched his personal season high with 21 points, including shooting a stifling 5-for-7 from 3-point range.
