Check out our favorite photos from the Bucks' big playoff weekend vs. Boston

When the Bucks returned to Milwaukee this weekend for Games 3 and 4 of their first-round playoff series against the Celtics, they were in a hole, down two games to none, looking defeated and desperately needing a win. Two games, and two impressive home victories later, the series is tied, 2-2, and now Milwaukee heads back to Boston for Game 5 on Tuesday night.

In both contests, Friday night and Sunday afternoon, the BMO Harris Bradley Center was bumping. Sellout crowds packed the arena, rocking the soon-to-be-replaced venue and making it as loud as it's ever been. The team reflected that excitement, too, responding to its two lackluster efforts in Boston with a pair of high-energy performances, which resulted in a blowout Game 3 win and a thrilling Game 4 triumph a couple days later.

From the phantasmagoric pregame shows to raucous chants of "Bucks in six!" and victory confetti falling from the ceiling; emphatic Giannis Antetokounmpo dunks to defiant Thon Maker blocks, silky Khris Middleton jumpers to Matthew Dellavedova defense; Jabari Parker aggressiveness, Eric Bledsoe pumping up the crowd, Malcolm Brogdon hitting three-pointers and much more, the Bucks made the Bradley Center the place to be in Milwaukee this weekend.

Here are our favorite photos from Games 3 and 4:

Game 5 is at TD Garden in Boston on Tuesday at 6 p.m. (NBA TV). Game 6 is back in Milwaukee on Thursday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center (time TBD).
