The Milwaukee Bucks have managed to push their first round series against the Chicago Bulls to Game 6, which will be played at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Thursday. No NBA team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series, so this may be the last time Bucks fans get to see their team in action. You’d think two rousing victories — with their season on the line — would inspire fans to come out in droves for Game 6. Apparently not.
As of Tuesday evening, here are all the available seats for Game 6, via Ticketmaster. Sure, there are only scattered singles in the lower bowl, but the upper bowl has plenty of unsold seats.
In an effort to get a few more Bucks fans into the arena, the team is conducting a ticket giveaway promotion, where Bucks fans can exchange a any red Bucks gear for green Bucks gear — the team is phasing out red as a team color — and two tickets to Game 6. All you have to do is be one of the first 50 fans at the pro shop when it opens at 10 am on Wednesday to score a free shirt and some tickets. The Bucks have also restricted actual ticket sales to Wisconsin residents, in hopes of keeping those pesky Bulls fans from turning yet another game into a pseudo Bulls home game.
