Bucks’ first-round playoff schedule revealed
Playoff basketball is finally coming to Fiserv Forum.
The series continues Wednesday with Game 2 at 7 p.m., before the series shifts to Detroit for Game 3 and Game 4 Saturday, April 20 and Monday, April 22.
Should the series continue, the Bucks will host Game 5 Wednesday, April 24, followed by Game 6 in Detroit Friday, April 26 and, if necessary, Game 7 in Milwaukee Sunday, April 28.
It’s unlikely to take that long.
Milwaukee swept its four-game series with Detroit this season.
The Bucks closed out the regular season Wednesday with a 127-116 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but enter the playoffs with the NBA’s best offense at 118.1 points per game.
Detroit survived a three-team battle for the No. 8 seed during the final week of the regular season, holding off the Charlotte Hornets and Miami Heat with back-to-back wins over the Memphis Grizzlies and New York Knicks.
