NOW: Bucks fans fill Deer District, powering team to Game 6 win

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- With their season on the line, Bucks fans filled the Deer District Thursday night, powering their team to a win in Game 6. 

While some rain came through, it wasn't enough to steer away these devoted fans.

Crowds gathered in the bars and in front of the big screens outside. Fans just wanted to be together on the important night in the series and cheer for a win.

They kept the faith that the Bucks could come back after their Game 5 loss to Brooklyn, and as the fourth quarter got underway, the cheering got even louder. 

Many fans arrived hours early, enjoying some late afternoon weather. It was a huge boost for bars and restaurants in the Deer District and beyond.

"It's beautiful out and I figured might as well," said Bucks fan Leah Radde. 

"I'm proud of how far they've come and that's all I can really say, honestly," said fan Olivia Owsianny. 

"I just want to say Bucks in seven," said fan Joey Maniaci. "You know, we go the best player in the world. We got great chemistry. We got great players. We just got to put it all together and we got it in seven. Go Bucks!"
