Milwaukee Bucks

Bucks clinch home court advantage for entire NBA playoffs

The road to the NBA title will come through Fiserv Forum this spring.

The Milwaukee Bucks, currently 59-20 following Thursday's 128-122 win over the 76ers, have guaranteed themselves home court advantage for all four playoff series they would play in this postseason.

That would include the NBA FInals in June.

The Bucks reached this level Thursday by virtue of their win over the Philadelphia 76ers, removing the Toronto Raptors from any chance of overtaking the Bucks. They, by one measure, are having one of the most dominating seasons in league history, as noted by ESPN earlier this week.

This is the third time the Bucks have had the NBA's best regular season record. The previous two times, they made the NBA Finals:
- 1971: Won NBA title with 4-0 sweep of Baltimore

- 1974: Lost NBA Finals with 4-3 defeat to Boston
