8. 20 Game Win Streak of 1971

Between February 6 and March 9, the Milwaukee Bucks rattled off 20 straight wins to assert themselves as the dominant team in the association. The streak was made all the more incredible by the fact that the team had already compiled a 16 game run of wins stretching from October 24 to November 25 to build a strong base at the start of the season.
