'We want them to win': Bucks fans excited over Deer District expansion to watch Game 6
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- An anticipated 65,000 fans will be outside Fiserv Forum on Tuesday, June 20, to watch Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
Ahead of the matchup, the Milwaukee Bucks put the final touches on their Deer District expansion. With so many fans outside, there's no way the Bucks won't feel the energy from the court.
"It's amazing, man, to come out here and to see so many people just walking around here rocking so much Bucks gear," said fan David Hauser.

"Actually, I think it's great for Milwaukee. It's fantastic," said fan Randy Wolff.
The game will be broadcast on four different screens for fans to choose from.
Bucks President Peter Feigin called the demand "the greatest problem to ever have."
"As long as you give them room and we've learned how to separate out and kind of have enough space for everybody, it really becomes like a celebration," Feigin said.
"As long as we take the safe precautions and, you know, make sure everyone doesn't get too rowdy, but just support and be loud, I think it's awesome," said fan Namia Boyd.
Bucks fan, Swazy, remembers watching games at the Bradley Center. He calls this time "legendary."
"We've never seen this many faces, this many people, this magnitude get together this many times. We don't want it to end really, but we do want it to end, cause we want them to win tonight," said Swazy.
Several downtown streets will be blocked off for the Finals. Here's a list to help you plan ahead.
