Days after securing a first-round sweep of the Indiana Pacers, the Boston Celtics learned today that Sunday, April 28th will be the first day of their second-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Milwaukee, which also secured a first-round sweep over the Detroit Pistons, will host the Celtics on Sunday, April 28th and Tuesday, April 30th in games one and two. Game one is scheduled to tip-off at 2 p.m., while no time has been announced for the second contest.
Boston will be the host for the third and fourth games, which will take place Friday, May 3rd and Monday, May 6th.
Game five (if necessary) will be held in Milwaukee, while Boston will be the site for game six (again, if needed).
Game seven will take place in Milwaukee – again if needed – but similar to game two, no times for games two through seven have been listed.
The winner of this second-round series will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals against the winner of Philadelphia 76ers-Toronto Raptors. Both Philadelphia and Toronto needed five games, respectively, to secure first-round wins over the Brooklyn Nets and Orlando Magic.
We’ll have more on the Celtics’ second-round series later this week on Noontime Sports, but make sure to stay connected with us on social media by following and liking us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.
