Even Portland Trail Blazers star CJ McCollum is in awe of the strong support the Milwaukee Bucks got in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Phoenix Suns.
The Bucks expanded the capacity of Deer District–the area outside their home arena Fiserv Forum–to accommodate up to 65,000 fans in a watch party of the game. That is in addition to the 17,000 capacity of the arena itself.
Of course, the thousands of Bucks fans showed up to support Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co., and it created a wild scene reminiscent of the celebrations during the franchise’s first championship back in 1971.
Damn that’s really wild. Bucks fans showing up and showing out respect 🤝 https://t.co/jNiRa4i0VX

CJ McCollum is certainly like everyone else after witnessing the massive support of Bucks fans. It’s simply incredible to see the fans get together and rally the team in easily the biggest and most important game for Cream City in 50 years.
Now talk about homecourt advantage!
The Bucks lost their first two games in the NBA Finals and it looked like they were on their way to a disappointing series. However, when they returned home, they responded with back-to-back wins in front of their fans to tie the series. Giannis and the rest of Milwaukee then continued their hot streak to take Game 5 on the road and set up a big closeout showdown in Game 6.
Now, the fans made sure to do their part!
