Giannis and the Bucks turned the Bulls into mincemeat – but that was just the first round. Milwaukee's quest to defend its NBA title is far from over; in fact, its greatest test might be up next as the Bucks face the Boston Celtics, arguably the hottest team in the league fresh off of dismantling the Brooklyn Nets in a clean first-round sweep. 

Huh, a second-round challenge against an East Coast powerhouse, putting the Bucks into an underdog position? Where have I heard this story before ... oh yeah, that's right, last postseason. Went pretty well if I recall.

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, though, here's the schedule as it currently stands for the Bucks' second-round spat against the Celtics: 

  • Game 1: Sunday, May 1 at Boston – noon on ABC
  • Game 2: Tuesday, May 3 at Boston – TBD on TNT
  • Game 3: Saturday, May 7 at Milwaukee – TBD on ABC
  • Game 4: Monday, May 9 at Milwaukee – TBD on TNT
  • Game 5 (if necessary): Wednesday, May 11 at Boston – TBD on TNT
  • Game 6 (if necessary): Friday, May 13 at Milwaukee – TBD on ESPN
  • Game 7 (if necessary): Sunday, May 15 at Boston – TBD

Tip-off times beyond Game 1 will be announced as the playoffs continue on, so stay tuned for more details.

In the meantime, read up on the who, what, where and when for the Bucks with our guide to the basics – and here's to seeing you all going nuts and cheering on another Bucks title run in and around Deer District starting this weekend!

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
