Bucks play at home tonight with a full house, plus get vaccinated to win tickets
It's game three for the Milwaukee Bucks tonight. The team will play to a full capacity Fiserv Forum for the first time this season, and basketball fans are ready.
"We want to get out there again and have life like we used to," said Ernie Knobloch of Oak Creek. "And this is part of Milwaukee life, to have a Bucks game and have the Bucks in the playoffs."
Fans will pack the arena Thursday at 6:30 p.m. and those without tickets will cheer on the deer from outside in the Deer District plaza.
The game will play on the jumbotron, fans will cheer on the Bucks, and feet away, tents will provide space a COVID-19 vaccination clinic.
"Everyone who receives their vaccination at this event will be entered in to a raffle to win two free tickets to the playoff game Sunday, June 13," said Milwaukee Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson.
The Buck's have teamed up with the Milwaukee County Health Department to encourage people to get vaccinated. Fans are encouraged to get their shot-- and some fans think, tonight, the Bucks have a shot.
"Hey, it's not over with yet," said Knobloch. "I know some people say they're down two-zero, but they haven't played in Milwaukee yet.
The watch party will take place outside of Fiserv from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
