Bucks open playoff series against Celtics Sunday

NBA Celtics playoffs schedule first round start time

The NBA Playoffs officially begin later today, but the Boston Celtics won't begin their first-round series of the postseason until they host the Milwaukee Bucks at the TD Garden tomorrow.

The Boston Celtics have received a boost with Marcus Smart saying he will "definitely" be fit for the second round of the National Basketball Association playoffs. And while having to deploy many youngsters like Boston has to could strike fear in plenty of coaches, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens is excited, and sees it as a tremendous opportunity.

Though Boston is the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference, they'll have their work cut out for them against a Bucks team that has proven to be an extremely tough customer to their opposition. "I trust Al Horford to guard any position on the floor with his athleticism and attention to detail".

Overcoming the loss of Gordon Hayward for the season and more recently Kyrie Irving has been made up for by fantastic coaching and other players stepping up.

We're headed to overtime!

The extra period provided much of the same as both teams went back and forth, before the Celtics eventually pulled away.
