Milwaukee Bucks vs. Playoff Schedule Indiana Pacers, 2024 NBA Bracket

After a tough regular season, the Milwaukee Bucks are turning the page on the 2024 NBA playoffs, starting with a first-round series against the Indiana Pacers.

Will the Bucks make it to the NBA’s No. 1 scoring team, led by Oshkosh native Tyrese Haliburton, a rising superstar in the league? Or will the Bucks be eliminated in the first round for the second straight season?

The Bucks, who started the year as one of the top betting favorites to win the NBA Finals, are the third seed with home field advantage in the best-of-seven series.

But the Pacers are a popular choice given Giannis Antetokounmpo’s injury status and their recent history against the Bucks. Antetokounmpo has not played or practiced since suffering a left soleus (calf) injury in a game against the Boston Celtics on April 9. Additionally, the Pacers defeated the Bucks four times in the teams’ five games this season.
