Milwaukee Bucks get back to basketball Saturday

After refusing to take the court earlier this week, the Milwaukee Bucks will finally tip off Game 5 on Saturday against the Orlando Magic from Walt Disney World. Orlando did not accept Milwaukee’s forfeit Wednesday, as the Bucks kept to the locker room in protest of a police-involved shooting in Kenosha that occurred last weekend. The protest spread to the rest of the NBA playoff schedule Wednesday and Thursday before an agreement was reached that night. The league and players will contribute additional money to various social justice initiatives.


Milwaukee lost Game 1 in the series but has taken the next three. A victory on Saturday would advance the Bucks to the second round.
