The BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee has always had one of the most underrated crowds in the NBA. When it’s a big game, it’s a lively atmosphere that resembles a college crowd. The Bucks haven’t had many big games this season as they’ve gotten off to a disappointing 10-15 start. No game they play this season will likely be more significant than Saturday night, when they handed the Warriors their first loss of the season to snap a record 24-0 start.
Bucks fans knew ahead of time that they had a chance to witness history, and had some special shirts made up for the game:
In a season that hasn’t given Bucks fans much to cheer about, this was pretty cool. It won’t matter in the long run—there’s still a very real chance the Warriors win 73 or more games, and the Bucks still face an uphill battle to get into the playoffs—but these fans can say they were there when the best start to a season in NBA history ended, and that’s a cool moment.
