The NBA regular season has come to an end and once again the Milwaukee Bucks are headed to the postseason.
After the final games of the season wrapped up, the seeding was finalized and the Bucks are the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference. That's the exact same seed they held last year when they won the NBA Finals for the first time in 50 years.
This time, their first round matchup will be against the Chicago Bulls.
The Bucks (51-31) and Bulls (46-36) have had some contentious matchups this season. It all started early in the year when Bucks guard Grayson Allen committed a hard foul on the Bulls' Alex Caruso, causing a hard fall and a broken wrist. Allen was ejected and suspended for the foul but the Bulls felt it was an especially dirty play, leading to a war of words between players and the fanbases for the rest of the season. The following matchups between the two teams were tense.
Still, the Bucks won all 4 matchups against the Bulls in the regular season, and are favored to win the first round series as well.
Game 1 of this series is on Sunday, April 17th.
