Bucks fans pack Deer District for ECF Game 5, confident in supporting cast
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Sandy Solo has been front and center at the Deer District since the playoffs began.
"I come down and listen to the DJ, stake out a spot and just bring energy to the Deer District," Solo said.
She's built a following while bringing energy to the crowd.
"Younger kids always clapping my hand when they show up, and they know now, it seems like I'm almost a mascot."
Her energy is with the Bucks down their best player in Giannis Antetokounmpo, and a series win away from their first NBA finals since 1974.
"I remember going to a playoff series, 1978 playoff series against Denver," fan Rob Lund said. "And to be this close, I have been a season ticketholder for 25 years."
As Bucks fever has taken off, the team has added more and more layers to an overflow area for fans.
"I love it," fan Paige Corey said. "I mean it's good for the city. I used to work at this vacant lot, which was known as the Bradley Center."
Fans got what they wanted as the Bucks jumped out to an early lead, and they never lost faith in the Greek Freak's teammates to get the job done without him.
"We got Kris Middleton, Holiday, big Lopez down low, and we got some good role players who are going to be good tonight," Ciares Ivory said. "So hopefully we get that W. Bucks in six, baby."
