Ahead of The Last Dance airing on Sunday night, there could be no better time than the present to look back on Michael Jordan’s best games against the Milwaukee Bucks.
With the first two episodes of ESPN’s 10-part documentary, The Last Dance, set to air on Sunday night, it’s fair to say that Michael Jordan fever has hit NBA fans all over again.
Simultaneously, one of the greatest players, stars, and most compelling characters the game has seen, and likely ever will see, Jordan still drives discussion among fans like no other player, and that will only be further in evidence over the coming weeks.
Part of that experience from a Milwaukee Bucks perspective will undoubtedly come in exploring and considering Jordan’s exploits against the franchise that acted as a near neighbor during Jordan’s heyday with the Bulls.
Depending on how you look it, the Bucks were either fortunate or unfortunate to go through a relative down period when Jordan was at the peak of his powers. That means there isn’t quite the wealth of high profile clashes between Jordan and the Bucks that there is between the Bucks and the likes of Larry Bird or Julius Erving, for example.
Still, Jordan had more than his fair share of jaw dropping moments against almost every team he came up against, and so the Bucks are no exception.
With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at Jordan’s three best games against the Bucks.
