At long last, we know when the Milwaukee Bucks will be playing next.
Tonight on ESPN, the remaining games of the Bucks’ regular season was announced, with things tipping off vs. the Celtics (funny how that works out, as that was the Bucks’ last scheduled game before the pandemic) on Friday, July 31st:

It’ll be interesting to see how Bud approaches these games. Surely, he’ll want to get some minutes under his starters’ legs as it’s been a while since they’ve hit the floor. However, Milwaukee basically has the No. 1 seed wrapped up, and it’ll definitely be a tough line to walk as to how much time they actually receive. Do you limit Giannis, Khris, and Brook and keep everyone else going? Or do you take a different approach? We’ll see how Budenholzer analyzes things.
Nonetheless, Milwaukee Bucks basketball is back, and that’s something we can all be happy for.
