Bucks' playoff events for fans this weekend include Games 3 and 4 pep rallies

The Bucks return to Milwaukee down, 0-2, in their first-round playoff series against the Celtics, having lost a thrilling Game 1 and an embarrassing Game 2 in Boston. This weekend, the seventh-seeded Bucks host the second-seeded Celtics for Game 3 on Friday and Game 4 on Sunday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, trying to show some life and some fight. To keep its postseason hopes alive, Milwaukee will need some help from its fans.

Game 3 tips-off at 8:30 p.m. tonight and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN and locally on FOX Sports Wisconsin PLUS. It can also be heard on 620 AM/103.3 FM WTMJ and across the BMO Harris Bucks Radio Network, as well as in Spanish on 93.7 FM.

The team is again inviting fans to be part of the playoff excitement. Before tonight's game, the Milwaukee Bucks will hold a Fear the Deer Pep Rally outside the BMO Harris Bradley Center on the corner of Fourth and State Streets. The pep rally begins at 6 p.m. and will include live entertainment, food and drink, plus large viewing screens and the opportunity for fans to win tickets to the game.

For those attending Games 3 and 4, the Bucks will be giving away Fear the Deer-themed T-shirts. There is also new official team playoff merchandise available for purchase at the Bucks Pro Shop inside the Bradley Center (open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. during the playoff run).

With Games 3 and 4 completely sold out, the Bucks on Friday provided fans, both those with tickets and those looking to purchase tickets on the secondary market, with information on avoiding ticket fraud.
