Where to watch the Bucks game beyond the Deer District
As the Bucks return to their home city hoping to wrap up their finals run in six games, Milwaukee has made preparations for the crowds of fans who will gather in the Deer District tonight.
With the addition of another big screen, the area outside Fiserv Forum has the capacity for up to 65,000 spectators, who will join another 16,000 in the arena for the historic game.
The Deer District won't be the only place fans can gather to watch the Bucks take on the Phoenix Suns for the final time at home, though.
