It may not have ended how Bucks fans may have wanted, but the environment at the Bradley Center was wild. Thanks to the Bucks, even in the loss, they made it a night to remember for some lucky fans. 
 
At 8:45 a.m. the Bucks Twitter account tweeted "Who needs tickets to game 4!?!"
 
 
Responses came in like wildfire and ten lucky fans got a pair of tickets to the game. One of those people, a dad from West Allis who wanted to bring his 2-year-old son to his first Bucks game. 
 
"I happened to go on my phone and was like, oh they're giving away tickets," Brandon Burdick said. "I sent them a picture of me and [his son Brayden] I took a while back and we ended up winning. I don't win stuff like that and it was cool seeing them pick me."
 
Brayden would have liked to see a victory, sure. But the game will be memorable for years to come. 
"He will really appreciate what today actually is and he'll like it one day," Burdick said. "The Bucks are the best organization, I believe. They're always doing stuff with their fans." 
 
"That's what it's all about for us," Dustin Godsey, Bucks Chief Marketing Officer said. "We want fans to be in here and be able to experience what this atmosphere is like during a playoff game."
 
Even in a loss, it was an intense environment at the arena. 
"Loudest I've seen it before," Burdick said. "My throat. All the yelling and everything throughout the game. It's a great game."
 
Burdick says he took plenty of photos of he, his son and his girlfriend so they can reminisce for years to come.
