After losing to Philadelphia to close out the regular season, the 7th-seeded Milwaukee Bucks will take on the 2nd-seeded Boston Celtics in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
While the playoffs begin Saturday, because the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics share an arena and the Bruins are scheduled to play there Saturday, it's likely that the Bucks' playoff opener will be Sunday.

Bucks will be facing the Celtics for the 6th time in the playoffs and the first time since 1987. The Bucks swept the Celtics in 1983. Boston prevailed in the 1974 NBA Finals, the 1984 and 1986 Eastern Conference Finals and the 1987 Eastern Conference semifinals.— Dennis Krause (@DennisKrause1) April 12, 2018
