MILWAUKEE, WI - The Bucks are back home taking on the Celtics in Game 6 of the playoffs. After losing to Boston Tuesday, tonight's game is a must-win for Milwaukee. 

“We’re on an upswing," Michelle Menges said.

"It’s about darn time, it couldn’t be a better time for the city of Milwaukee," she continued. 

Michelle Menges said she’s been a Bucks fan all her life and tonight she along with thousands of other enthused fans will be rooting for a win. 

“If the Bucks buckle down and play and play like they played for the two games in Milwaukee [they'll have] no problem winning," Menges said. 

"If our crowd is with us like they were last time, that place is electric and there’s no one that can beat the Bucks," she continued.

If the Bucks don’t walk away with a win tonight, the loss would be two-fold. Not only would a loss end their playoff run, but it would also mark the last time the Bucks play in the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

“They need Maker to go off," Brian Roark said. 

"And he will," Roark continued. 

Roark is just one of the thousands of fans who will pack the arena this evening, and with special items on the menu tonight, including a New England style shrimp roll served with malted pub chips and specialty -- charred lemonade bourbon w/ Thai basil cocktail, those working for the team said fans should come hungry and ready to cheer. 

“Every fan in the game tonight will have [a t-shirt] on their seat when they arrive," Dustin Godsey said. 

"We encourage people to come in, get their shirts on [and] have that blackout 'fear the deer' atmosphere [because] it’s going to be a lot of fun," he continued. 

If you don’t have a ticket to the game, no problem, fans can still join the party as the team kicks things off with a pep rally at 4:30pm outside the Bradley Center.
