NOW: Bucks may be a small market team, but they’re making a big impression

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Bucks may not have the star power as some of the other teams in the NBA, but they're making basketball fans out of the younger generation. 

"It was just so entertaining, because like the Hawks were in the lead the whole time and the Bucks come back, and just crazy," said seven-year-old Mason Mascotti.

Mascotti was at the Bucks Pro Shop with his mom Tuesday morning ahead of the game. 

"It's fun watching all the players just do their thing," he said. 

He's seen all of the fans come together to pack the deer district. 

"It's crazy how it's so packed down here. It would be fun to experience it," said Mascotti. 

Twenty thousand fans have packed the Deer District for every playoff game this season, and the same is expected for game four tonight.

As long as there's no lightning, Bucks officials say the game will be played on the three large screens. 

Fans think this is the Bucks' season to go all the way. 

"Just think about champions," said LJ Hunt III. "We just deserve it. Ambition is at its finest this year and not just Giannis, the whole Bucks squad." 

If the Bucks make it to the NBA Conference Finals, officials are expecting even more fans to show up in the deer district. They say there's a possibility they could open up the arena as another viewing area if that happens.  

As for fans, they still think the Bucks are taking the series in five games. To make that happen, the team needs to win Tuesday, June 28 and Thursday, July 1.
