"Oh man, it’s electric," said Gonzalez. "It’s exciting, you can just feel it internally – I got goosebumps."

The Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Miami Heat in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series Saturday, April 22.

"I know Giannis isn’t playing, but I feel we got our feet under us now, we got a couple games in, and we understand what we need to do," Zalenski said.

Wherever Bucks fans watch, there's one opponent that never stops them: Mother Nature. And despite Saturday's loss, fans are hopeful – because Game 5 will be played in Milwaukee either way.

"We just need to support them and cheer them on," Gonzalez said.
