The Bucks refused to play Game 5 after Jacob Blake was shot in the back seven times by a police officer. The incident took place in Wisconsin, so it hits close to home for the Bucks and their players.
The Bucks players didn’t take any questions from the media and went back to their Disney hotel following the statement. It’s unclear if Milwaukee will finish the 2020 playoffs since none of the players spoke.
The Bucks are currently up 3-1 on the Magic in the first-round series.
