LISTEN: Who's gonna win it? The Bucks, the Bucks (also the Brewers)

In Episode 25 of OnMilwaukee's podcast, The Postgame Tailgate, sports editor Jimmy Carlton and pop culture editor Matt Mueller are talking playoff Bucks.

The guys recap the Game 1 victory and the still-encouraging Game 2 defeat in Toronto; what was different between the games and how Milwaukee can keep the momentum coming back home; the peerless play of Giannis Antetokounmpo, the struggles of Khris Middleton and the Raptors' star backcourt; how to beat Toronto, who needs to step up and what has to happen for the Bucks to pull off the upset.

They also discuss the excitement in Milwaukee, as the series now comes to the BMO Harris Bradley Center, and offer their predictions of which team will prevail. (Hot-take teaser: they disagree!)

Before all that basketball talk, though, Jimmy and Matt reflect on the many cool things and fun news around the city, including Summerfest, 414 Day and the legendary Eric Thames-led Brewers' early-season success.
