MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks are one win from their first series win and first game seven win in a generation.

"We went into last night's game expecting to be here today. Here we are," said Bucks GM Jon Horst on WTMJ's Wisconsin's Afternoon News while traveling with the Bucks, who have arrived in Boston for their Eastern Conference first round Game 7 against the Celtics (6:40 p.m. on WTMJ).

"The players are focused. They understand the magnitude...they are thankful, happy, proud for the opportunity we have in front of us to close out the series."

The Bucks fell down 0-2 in the first two games of the series, but have won games three, four and six - and are just 48 minutes away from a series victory.

Horst gave congratulations to his head coach, Joe Prunty, someone whose job status he will be considering after the Bucks' season ends - whether on Saturday night with a loss or later in the playoffs.

"I'm really proud of him, happy for him," said Horst.

"Joe and his staff, and quite honestly our entire staff...we've all pitched in and really tried to make sure our players are prepared on the floor, off the floor, our physical state. We're proud of the entire group effort."

Horst also is also thankful for the presence of one of the most playoff-experienced veterans in basketball, Jason Terry who is in his 19th NBA season - 13 in the playoffs.

"An unbelievable benefit for have a guy like Jason on our team," said Horst.

"Jason and I were talking. He said 'I've been down 0-2 before, and come back and won the series.' Jason has seen it all."
