3 NBA Playoff Games Postponed TONIGHT After Bucks Boycott Their Game in Protest of Blake Shooting

NBA Games postponed

*The Milwaukee Bucks have made the decision to boycott Wednesday’s NBA playoff game against the Orlando Magic in response to the recent shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin.

According to @espn, George Hill said to Marc J. Spears, “We’re tired of the killings and the injustice.”

The team did not come on to the floor before their 4pm EST start time, which caused officials to head to their locker room, and that’s when they learned of the teams boycott. (?: @nbatv)

“Some things are bigger than basketball,” Bucks senior vice president Alex Lasry tweeted Wednesday. “The stand taken today by the players and (the organization) shows that we’re fed up. Enough is enough. Change needs to happen. I’m incredibly proud of our guys and we stand 100% behind our players ready to assist and bring about real change.”

Now, as a result of the Bucks’ action, a total of three NBA playoff games set for Wednesday have been postponed.

The Magic-Bucks contest were the first of three scheduled games on Wednesday. They were to be followed by Houston Rockets versus the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Portland Trail Blazers against the Los Angles Lakers.
