The Milwaukee Bucks decided to boycott their Playoffs game against the Orlando Magic just minutes before tipoff.  This resulted in the other two scheduled NBA Playoffs games Wednesday night being cancelled.  Some MLB and WNBA teams also opted to boycott their Wednesday games.

Milwaukee is about 40 miles north of Kenosha, Wisconsin, the city where 29-year-old Jacob Blake, a Black man, was shot seven times by police on Sunday. Blake was shot as he attempted to enter the driver's side door of his vehicle with three of his children inside. Video of the shooting was distributed on social media.

During an evening meeting between players, both the LA Clippers and Lakers voted to end the season according to reports.

Sources said it seems unlikely there will be games played Thursday, either, when the six teams still inside the bubble that were not scheduled to play Wednesday -- the Celtics, Toronto Raptors, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz, Dallas Mavericks and Clippers -- are scheduled to return to action.

The lines on Thursday's games appear below.

Denver Nuggets +1.5 Utah Jazz

Boston Celtics +2.5 Toronto Raptors

LA Clippers -8.5 Dallas Mavericks
