Milwaukee Bucks sit out Playoff game in protest at Jacob Blake shooting

The Milwaukee Bucks led one of the most powerful sporting protests in recent memory last night. 

They decided to sit out game 5 of their NBA Playoff with the Orlando Magic. 

The Bucks were protesting the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin on Sunday. 

After the Lakers and the Trailblazers indicated they'd do the same, the NBA postponed last night's three games. 

It's the most potent sporting action yet in the Black Lives Matter movement.

The Milwaukee Brewers postponed their Major League Baseball game last night against the Cincinnati Reds in solidarity with the Bucks, while the San Francisco Giants game against the LA Dodgers along with the Seattle Mariners game against the San Diego Padres were also postponed.
