After leading the series 2-1, the Bucks have lost the last two games against the Raptors and now face a do-or-die elimination game at home on Thursday night. Game 6 of the first-round Eastern Conference playoff series between Milwaukee and Toronto tips off at 6 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, and there are some fun events going on at the arena beforehand.

Prior to tonight’s game, the Milwaukee Bucks Playoff Pep Rally, presented by Palermo’s Pizza, will tip things off in the southeast plaza of the BMO Harris Bradley Center beginning at 4 p.m. The festival-like atmosphere will have interactive games and prizes throughout, making it a can’t-miss event to get fired up for Milwaukee’s final home playoff game of the series.

There are still a limited amount of tickets remaining for tonight’s Game 6. Fans can be a part of the action and secure seats by visiting

Game 6 will be broadcast nationally on TNT and locally on FOX Sports Wisconsin, following a one-hour edition of the Bucks Live pregame show beginning at 5 p.m. The game can also be heard on 620 WTMJ and across the Bucks statewide radio network.

Happy hour specials: Fans are encouraged to arrive early for tonight’s 6 p.m. start to take advantage of happy hour specials available from 4-5 p.m., both in-arena and at the Milwaukee Bucks Playoff Pep Rally. There will be $1 hot dogs, and a hot dog and 22 oz. souvenir cup beer special (while supplies last) for $9.

Start time for potential Game 7: If the Milwaukee-Toronto series continues to a seventh game, there are two possible schedule scenarios for Saturday’s Game 7 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. If Game 7 is necessary between both Milwaukee-Toronto and Memphis-San Antonio, Milwaukee and Toronto will tip off at 6 p.m. CT. If Game 7 is necessary in the Milwaukee-Toronto series and not necessary in the Memphis-San Antonio series, the Bucks-Raptors game will begin at 7 p.m. CT.
