Light it up! Light it up!

We know half of our Semifinal field after Day 13’s thrilling results, and now we turn our eyes to the final two Quarterfinal games to fill out the rest of our final four.

Here is a peek at the final Quarterfinal games:


Game 45

After upsetting the 1984/85 Bucks, the 2000/01 Bucks had a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar obstacle standing in their way. The 1971/71 Bucks needed a one-point win to get to the Quarterfinals and were looking to prove they could live up to their second seed billing.

Ray Allen went OFF from three when his team needed him the most. He dropped a cool 25 points on 5/6 shooting from beyond the arc. Glenn Robinson and Sam Cassell combined to score 47 points on 18/39 shooting from the floor. For his part, Abdul-Jabbar scored 25 points and collected 13 rebounds, but was only joined by Oscar Robertson (15 points & 11 assists) in providing any sort of significant impact.

Game 46

With the last spot in the Semifinals up for grabs, we had the 1999/2000 version of the Big 3 taking on the 1985/86 Bucks and their offensive maestros, Terry Cummings and Sidney Moncrief. Were Cummings and Moncrief able to conduct their team past the Y2K Bucks?

Without breaking a sweat the dynamic duo were able to advance to the Semifinals. Cummings led the way with 22 points and nine rebounds while converting on 50-percent of his shots from the floor. Sam Cassell carried the Big 3 with 22 points and eight assists, but was the only player on the 99/00 roster to break the 13 point barrier.


With our final four set, let’s take a look at the bracket which includes a team from every decade except for the 90s:

Game 47

Will the 2017/18 Bucks and Giannis Antetokounmpo knock-off a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar team for the third consecutive round, or will the 1970/71 Bucks advance to another championship round?
