Milwaukee Bucks third NBA team unable to win consecutive games in 82-game season

The Milwaukee Bucks will finish their season against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday and thanks to their loss against the Toronto Raptors on Monday, the Bucks will be able to claim something no other team in the NBA can this season.

They never had a win streak.

Not even one.

According to the NBA’s Hangtime blog, the Bucks have become the third team in NBA history (under the 82-game schedule format) to not win back-to-back games at any point this season. Even the lowly Philadelphia 76ers who tied an NBA record for consecutive losses this season could claim they won two games in a row, but not the Bucks.

The Bucks are the third team in NBA history to play an 82-game season without ever winning two straight. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the only two other teams to do it were the 1986-87 Clippers and the 2004-05 Hawks.

The last team to go through such were the Charlotte Bobcats who were unable to win consecutive games in 2011-12, however, that was during a strike-shortened 66-game season.
