After Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks to a series-tying victory over the Celtics on Thursday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, Milwaukee heads back to Boston for a do-or-die Game 7 on Saturday.

Win, and the Milwaukee Bucks advance to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2001; lose, and they go home, with an offseason of big decisions looming.

For the decisive seventh game of their first-round series, the Bucks will again have an official viewing party. On Saturday, fans can cheer the deer together and watch the game at Hi Hat Garage, 1701 N. Arlington Pl., starting at 7 p.m. Raffle prizes will be given out throughout the game, food and beverage specials will be available and the Bucks entertainment teams will be on hand to add to the excitement.

Game 7 tips off at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast nationally on TNT with Brian Anderson, Kevin McHale and Ros Gold-Onwude on the call and locally on FOX Sports Wisconsin with Gus Johnson, Marques Johnson and Telly Hughes. Game 7 can also be heard on 620 AM/103.3 FM WTMJ and across the BMO Harris Bucks Radio Network with Ted Davis and Dennis Krause calling the action.

Born in Milwaukee but a product of Shorewood High School (go ‘Hounds!) and Northwestern University (go ‘Cats!), Jimmy never knew the schoolboy bliss of cheering for a winning football, basketball or baseball team. So he ditched being a fan in order to cover sports professionally - occasionally objectively, always passionately. He's lived in Chicago, New York and Dallas, but now resides again in his beloved Brew City and is an ardent attacker of the notorious Milwaukee Inferiority Complex.

After interning at print publications like Birds and Blooms (official motto: "America's #1 backyard birding and gardening magazine!"), Sports Illustrated (unofficial motto: "Subscribe and save up to 90% off the cover price!") and The Dallas Morning News (a newspaper!), Jimmy worked for web outlets like, where he was a Packers beat reporter, and FOX Sports Wisconsin, where he managed digital content. He's a proponent and frequent user of em dashes, parenthetical asides, descriptive appositives and, really, anything that makes his sentences longer and more needlessly complex.

Jimmy appreciates references to late '90s Brewers and Bucks players and is the curator of the unofficial John Jaha Hall of Fame. He also enjoys running, biking and soccer, but isn't too annoying about them. He writes about sports - both mainstream and unconventional - and non-sports, including history, music, food, art and even golf (just kidding!), and welcomes reader suggestions for off-the-beaten-path story ideas.
