The 1990–91 NBA season was the 76ers 42nd season in the National Basketball Association, and 28th season in Philadelphia. The Sixers got off to a 19–8 start to the season, but would lose 10 of their next 16 games. However, they posted a 7-game winning streak between February and March, and finished second in the Atlantic Division with a record of 44–38, which was nine wins less than the previous season. In the playoffs, they swept the 4th-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in the first round, but for the second consecutive year, they would be eliminated by the Chicago Bulls 4–1 in the semifinals. This season would be the last playoff appearance for the Sixers until 1999. The seven consecutive season in which they did not make the playoffs during this span were more than the franchise had missed since their inaugural season of 1950, five.
