1999–2000 Milwaukee Bucks season

The 1999–2000 NBA season was the Bucks' 32nd season in the National Basketball Association.[1] During the offseason, the Bucks acquired Danny Manning and re-acquired Dale Ellis from the Orlando Magic. With Sam Cassell playing a full season after missing most of the lockout season due to injury, the Bucks played above .500 in the first half of the season. However, they struggled in February posting a 3–9 record as Ellis was traded to the Charlotte Hornets. With less than a month to go, the Bucks playoff chances appeared bleak as they had a 32–37 record in late March. However, down the stretch, they won 10 of their final 13 games to sneak into the playoffs as the #8 seed in the Eastern Conference, finishing fifth in the Central Division with a 42–40 record. Ray Allen and Glenn Robinson were both selected for the 2000 NBA All-Star Game.
