MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Hundreds of Milwaukee Bucks fans were turned away Friday after camping out overnight or waiting for hours for tickets for Game 7 against the Charlotte Hornets.

John Steinmiller, Bucks vice president of business operations, said the 4,500 tickets available were sold in about 25 minutes. The process was similar to Milwaukee's other playoff games, he said. The Bradley Center has 18,717 seats.

Sunday's Game 7 is the first time since May 3, 1987, that Milwaukee has hosted a decisive playoff game.

With three other options for tickets -- including 75 Ticketmaster outlets, online sales and a toll-free number -- it didn't take long for seats to disappear.

"People who weren't in line real early didn't get tickets," Steinmiller said.

Fans who waited unsuccessfully to get seats for the game began chanting, "We want tickets!" Police were called in until the crowd dissipated.
