Milwaukee Bucks: 20 Greatest Individual Performances In Franchise History

17 of 21

5. Ray Allen – vs. Charlotte Hornets, 14 April, 2002

Expectations were high for Milwaukee after just falling short in the Conference Finals in 2001, yet the Bucks couldn’t follow it up in a way that the fans would have hoped for. To this day, it remains tough to put a finger on why exactly that was.

One thing that can’t exactly be questioned is the talent level that the team possessed. The Bucks were lucky to have an emerging Ray Allen at the front of everything they were doing in that season, although it wouldn’t be too long before he would end up traded to Seattle.

If Ray Allen’s career is best remembered for his shooting, well there’s a strong chance that this may well be his piece de resistance.

Against a solid Charlotte team, who were better than the Bucks were for the season overall, Allen let fly, and reaped the benefits.

Milwaukee’s shooting guard scored a remarkable 47 points on only 23 field goal attempts. Allen attempted 14 three-pointers and knocked down 10 of them.  That’s a single game franchise record that still stands to this day.
