Eastern Conference Finals Schedule: Bucks Await Opponent

Now that the Milwaukee Bucks have advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time in 18 years, all that's left is to sort out their opponent (and the series start date). Tonight's Toronto-Philadelphia game will determine the start date, and possibly the opponent, if Toronto wins.

Toronto leads the best-of-seven series 3-2 heading into tonight's game at Philadelphia. The Bucks took 2 of 3 from the 76ers during the regular season, while taking 3 of 4 from the Raptors, although Milwaukee and Toronto haven't faced each other since January.
