FOX6 News caught up with Evan O'Keefe and his mom, Beth, Bucks fans from Burlington, Vermont.
"I was never a Celtics fan," said Evan O'Keefe.
"We have tickets for Game 5, but hoping that they finish it off today, so we decided to come here," said Beth O'Keefe.
The plaza was filled with people from across the Milwaukee area, and was more than just a place to watch the game -- but to make friends.
"I like you, man," said Bradford Jackson.
"Bradford, I love you, man. I got to get your number after this. We got to hang out," said Jackson's new friend.
Everyone banded together for one common cause.
"Because, we love the Bucks! The Bucks is great! It's our team," said a fan.
"I got all good things to say about them. I can't wait for them to get back here and play...who they playing? Boston! We're going to whoop them too!" said a fan.
