The 1990–91 NBA season was the Bucks' 23rd season in the National Basketball Association.[1] During the offseason, the Bucks acquired Frank Brickowski from the San Antonio Spurs. The Bucks started the season on a strong note winning their first 18 home games on their way to a 25–8 start. However, they would lose ten of their next twelve games. Ricky Pierce and Alvin Robertson were both selected for the 1991 NBA All-Star Game. At midseason, Pierce was traded to the Seattle SuperSonics for Dale Ellis.[2] The Bucks would make their 12th consecutive playoff appearance finishing third in the Central Division with a 48–34 record, while posting a 33–8 home record at the Bradley Center. In the first round of the playoffs, the Bucks were swept by the 5th-seeded Philadelphia 76ers in three straight games. This would be their final playoff appearance until 1999.
