Milwaukee Bucks: 20 Greatest Individual Performances In Franchise History

6 of 21

16. Zaza Pachulia – @ Brooklyn Nets, March 20, 2015

It’s always a fun night when you get to see NBA history being made, and it’s even better when it’s a Milwaukee Bucks player who is etching his name into the history books.

Whenever you go to look up the greatest offensive rebounding performances to date in NBA history, you’ll be greeted by three names. Dennis Rodman and Charles Oakley‘s presence likely won’t surprise anybody as both men were tenacious rebounders, but the third man in their company is none other than Georgian journeyman Zaza Pachulia.

Pachulia is and always will be a little bit of a cult figure among Bucks fans (particularly for this writer), and as time goes on a big part of his legacy will likely become this remarkable performance in an incredible game against the Nets in the Barclays Center.

The Bucks would eventually fall by two points in a triple-overtime classic, but they likely would have lost much earlier if not for a herculean effort from their center. Pachulia posted 22 points, 21 rebounds and seven assists, highlighting his full range of skill.

Incredibly, 18 of Pachulia’s 21 rebounds came on the offensive glass on the night, an example of the endless energy and effort that many forget about when they think of Pachulia.
