Playoff basketball is back in Milwaukee. Take that in for a second. Feels good, right?
It is exciting, but it's met with an uphill climb. The series arrives in Milwaukee with the Bucks down 2-0 to the Chicago Bulls. If Milwaukee wants to pull off the upset, it would be largely beneficial to hold serve and protect their home court.
But how much of their home court will be theirs? Bulls fans have a long history of making the cheaper trip up to Milwaukee to catch their team and are known for creating "United Center North," a virtual home court advantage for the road team. In the last regular season home game, a "Let's go Bulls!" chant erupted throughout the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
All that being said, this is the playoffs. There will still be a fair share of Bulls fans, but Bucks fans figure to also come out in droves, motivated to both drown out the opponent and root on their team. You could call all of this bothersome or annoying or whatever, but it's going to be energetic and it's going to be crazy. Tonight is going to be memorable.
