Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls
In a basketball rivalry emblematic of the midwestern culture the two cities involved are enveloped in, the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks have been involved in a rivalry filled with physical basketball and some legendary performances from all-time great players. The two teams began their feud as fellow members of the NBA's Western Conference, with both teams eventually moving to the Eastern Conference, where they would meet in the playoffs to help determine the conference's representative in the NBA Finals.
Three major periods of time come to mind when it comes to the rivalry between the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks, with those times being the 1970s, 1990s, and the mid-2010s. During those times, the two teams met regularly in the postseason, with some of the league's top players headlining their rosters. For the Bulls, this meant players like Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, while the Bucks were led during portions of the rivalry's most intense moments by greats such as Oscar Robertson, or young stars like Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Historic Bucks vs. Bulls Games
One of the most memorable games between the Bucks and Bulls came as a coming out party of sorts for the player regarded by many to be the greatest of all time, Michael Jordan. Despite the Bulls bowing out of the playoffs in the 1985 season at the hands of the Bucks, Jordan had a performance for the ages in Game 3 of that series, dropping an astonishing 48 points. In just his rookie season, Jordan put the league on notice with that game that he was destined for greatness.
The 1974 season was the end of an era for the NBA, as it was the final season in the remarkable career of Oscar Robertson. Robertson celebrated his impending retirement by eliminating the Bulls from the playoffs one final time in his career, capping off a four game sweep of Chicago with a 115-99 victory. Robertson posted a double-double in that, his final game against the Bulls, but the real star in that contest was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who racked up 38 points and 24 rebounds in the deciding game of the series.
Chicago would get their revenge on the Bucks in a big way in the 2015 NBA Playoffs, knocking Milwaukee out in six games. Game 6 was extremely memorable, thanks to the Bulls' total domination of the Bucks in what ended up being the series clinching game. Chicago's 120-66 win was a defensive master class, in which no Bucks player scored in double figures.
