Today's Date in NBA History

(Boulder-CO) Today's date is March 8th, and on this day:
'71- The Milwaukee Bucks defeated Seattle 104-99 to run their winning streak to 20 straight games, the second-longest winning streak in NBA history, behind the 33 consecutive games won by the Los Angeles Lakers during the 1971-72 season. Milwaukee finished the 1970-71 season with a 66-16 record and went on to capture the NBA Championship.

'94- Chicago’s Scottie Pippen and Pete Myers became the first set of teammates in NBA history to convert four-point plays (three-point field goal and free throw) in the same game, with both turning the trick in the fourth quarter of the Bulls’ 116-95 win over visiting Atlanta.

'96- Utah coach Jerry Sloan won his 500th career NBA game after the Jazz defeated visiting Houston 109-89. Prepare to lose tonight, Jerry!
Enjoy your day!
