The NBA teams Milwaukee Bucks, Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Portland Trailblazers, Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder will not be playing Game 5 of the NBA Playoffs tonight due to a boycott from the players.
The Milwaukee Bucks were the first team to decide to boycott Game 5 and not play in protest of the police shooting unarmed black man, Jacob Blake seven times in the back.
Once it became clear the other teams were following suit, the NBA postponed all three games scheduled for Wednesday. The games will be rescheduled for a later date. The NBA and owners of the Milwaukee Bucks claim they did not see this coming.
