Bucks Try Again To End First Round Futility

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Bucks will begin their second playoff run in coach Jason Kidd’s three seasons in Milwaukee. But the sixth seeded Bucks have not won a postseason series in 16 years, as they get set for a first round matchup that begins at 4:30 p-m Saturday at third seeded Toronto. Game Two of the best of seven Eastern Conference quarterfinals is Tuesday night in Canada, and then the series moves to Milwaukee for Game Three next Thursday night and Game Four on Saturday afternoon, April 22nd. If necessary, the remaining three contests will be played Monday the 24th at Toronto — Thursday the 27th in Milwaukee — and Saturday the 29th in Canada. Milwaukee has lost six consecutive opening round playoff series since making the East Finals in 2001 when they had what was known as the “Big Three” — Ray Allen, Sam Cassell, and Glenn Robinson.
