Bucks fans got free playoff tickets if they traded red shirts for green ones

Wednesday April 29th, 2015

The Bucks really don't want people wearing red at Thursday's game against the Bulls.

Milwaukee has rallied from a 3–0 deficit in the first-round playoff series to force a Game 6, but is still the underdog. With Chicago only a short drive from Milwaukee, the Bucks are doing everything they can to make sure they get as much home support as possible. 

That's why the Bucks gave away 100 free tickets to Thursday's game for fans who swapped out their red Bucks gear for green. The first 50 fans who came to the team's pro shop with red merchandise left with something green and a pair of tickets to the game.
