'Bucks in six': Fans hoping Bucks win in Atlanta Saturday night to advance to NBA Finals
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- As the Bucks take on the Hawks in Atlanta Saturday night fans will pour back into the Deer District to show their support.
Let them tell it and many fans will say they knew it all along… Bucks in six.
They want the team to bring home another 'W' and advance to the Finals.
Anna Harkensee is hoping the team will win Game six while away.
"I'm hoping they can finish in Atlanta because I don't know if my nerves can take a Game 7 at home but it would be fun," said Harkensee.
The Milwaukee native said the team energized the Cream City -- especially after their Game five win Thursday night.
"Bobby Portis, Jr. and Lopez both had their playoff high. I just think that speaks volumes because they did it when they had to," she added.
The team's performance has fans from around the country flocking to Milwaukee in support.
Michael Tamburri is from Pittsburgh.
"I haven't seen playoff basketball like this in a long time so having them be one win away from the finals is really exciting," said Tamburri.
And now, even without Giannis, their star player…
"He's a great player. He's a superstar. I like the way he plays," said Bruce Spencer who was visiting from Chicago.
Bucks fans, of all ages, aren't giving up hope just yet.
"Bucks in six!" said young fan Giovanni Riley.
"How'd you feel about watching this game tonight?" the CBS 58 reporter asked Giovanni on Thursday night.
"Feeling good!" he answered.
