The postseason path is slowly yet surely coming into focus for the Bucks – made even more clear early Wednesday morning when the NBA announced the dates and times for Milwaukee's first-round matchup against the Chicago Bulls. 

With no further ado, here's the schedule for the Bucks' first-round series:

  • Game 1 – Sunday, April 17 at 5:3o p.m. in Milwaukee
  • Game 2 – Wednesday, April 20 at 8:30 p.m. in Milwaukee
  • Game 3 – Friday, April 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Chicago
  • Game 4 –Sunday, Aprill 24 at noon in Chicago
  • Game 5 – TBD, if necessary
  • Game 6 – TBD, if necessary
  • Game 7 – TBD, if necessary

The first two games of the series will broadcast on TNT, while Games 3 and 4 will air on ABC. If the best-of-seven series goes beyond four games, the NBA will announce dates, times and additional details on those playoff games when they are made necessary.

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.
