Revisiting 50-point games throughout Milwaukee Bucks history – Michael Redd

Michael Redd’s Bucks stint was largely beset by the team’s struggles to put together a consistent and rewarding foundation, especially during his peak performance.

With that said, that shouldn’t take away from Redd’s individual brilliance that long stood as the biggest bright spot in what were otherwise lean years for the Bucks.

It was in the 2006-07 season when Redd reached the zenith of his scoring expertise and it also doubles as the year in which the former Buckeye crafted both of his 50-point showings throughout his 12-year career.

In fact, Redd’s 57-point masterpiece that he set in a 113-111 loss to the Utah Jazz back on November 11, 2006 stands as the most a Bucks player has scored in a single game throughout the franchise’s history. A few months later and following a lengthy injury absence, Redd followed up with a 52-point outing that came in yet another loss, this time a 126-121 defeat to the Chicago Bulls on March 4, 2007.

The fact that both such games, though, ended in losses for the Bucks unfortunately stands as the recurring theme throughout Redd’s Bucks career. But his name remains etched in the Bucks’ record books all the same, thanks to his many scoring feats.
