Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur was in Brooklyn to see the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Nets in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Saturday night.
LaFleur was also on hand to see the Bucks extend the series with a Game 6 win in Milwaukee on Thursday night following the conclusion of the Packers’ offseason workout program.
New York Jets coach Robert Saleh, a good friend of LaFleur’s, was also at Game 7.
The epic contest saw the Bucks escape Brooklyn with a 115-111 victory in overtime. Kevin Durant scored 48 points, including a game-tying bucket at the end of regulation, but Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 40 points on15-of-24 shooting and Khris Middleton hit the go-ahead basket in overtime.
LaFleur picked a good game to attend. The Bucks’ win was the first Game 7 to need overtime in the NBA playoffs since 2006.
Milwaukee advances to face either the Philadelphia 76ers or Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals.
