As Milwaukee needs just one win from the next three games, if all goes to plan, Brogdon may well get a chance to get some minutes under his belt before being afforded more off-time to get ready ahead of a potential Conference Finals series.
"It's incredible. It was a team effort", said Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, who scored 20 points.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 20 points and secured 8 rebounds as well as 8 assists.
Brogdon, who has been sidelined since March 15 with a plantar fascia tear, will come off the bench for Milwaukee and be on a minutes restriction. George Hill finished with 16 points and Nikola Mirotic had 10 points and 11 rebounds.
The 27-year-old point guard went 6-for-21 from the field and 1-of-7 from 3-point range as he ended up with 15 points in a Game 5 performance that will be remembered for all of the wrong reasons.

Golden State almost gave it away with an bad third quarter, when the Warriors managed just 15 points and committed six turnovers. "That's how we were able to close the game". Irving would call out younger players and blame them for the team's struggles. He is eligible for free agency in the offseason, and his future is one of the major questions facing the Celtics this summer.
"I respect the Knicks organization", Irving said during his Garden visit.
After Boston had stolen Game 1 on the road, Milwaukee accomplished its series-flipping blowout in large part by harassing Kyrie Irving into just nine points on 4-for-18 shooting.
The Bucks' reserves allowed coach Mike Budenholzer to reduce the workload on his stars at various points throughout the matchup with Boston, which could be crucial moving forward.
"I'm going to do what I feel is best for my career, and, you know, that's just where it stands", Irving said earlier this season.
At a season-ticket holder event during training camp, Irving committed to staying with the Celtics long term.
If Rose is right - if Irving is indeed "done" in Boston - then the Celtics will have nothing to show for the 2017 trade that sent the basketball world into a frenzy. That moment absolutely came before the season's final buzzer. "I want to be the reason no one else will".
