CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Game 5 of the NBA playoffs between Orlando and Milwaukee appears to be off, at least for today.

The Bucks did not appear for the 4:10 pm ET tipoff, apparently in protest of the Jacob Blake shooting in Wisconsin.

There are 2 more playoff games scheduled today : Oklahoma City-Houston at 6:30 pm ET and Portland-LA Lakers at 9 pm ET.
