Milwaukee Bucks boycott NBA playoff series game

1 min read

The Milwaukee Bucks boycotted their NBA playoff series game today.

The boycott was in response to Jacob Blake, who was shot multiple times by police Sunday afternoon at close range as he tried to enter an SUV, which held his three, five and eight-year old sons.

The 29-year-old Black man was undergoing surgery Tuesday afternoon.

Bucks players opted not to leave their locker room for their Game 5 matchup against the Orlando Magic in response to the Kenosha, Wisconsin police shooting of Blake.

The NBA announced that all of Wednesday’s playoff games would be postponed as a result of Milwaukee’s decision.
