Celtics vs. Bucks live stream: Watch Game 1 of second-round showdown originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Celtics swept Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets out of the first round of the NBA playoffs.

But they'll face a stiffer challenge in the defending NBA champions.

The Celtics kick off their second-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday afternoon at TD Garden. The Bucks dispatched the Chicago Bulls 4-1 in their first-round series and are eyeing their third trip to the Eastern Conference finals in four years.

Milwaukee is expected to be without All-Star Khris Middleton for the entire series due to an MCL sprain. That's a big break for Boston, as Middleton has averaged over 20 points per game against the Celtics over the past three seasons.

The C's will have their hands full with Giannis Antetokounmpo, though. The NBA MVP finalist averaged 29.9 points, 11.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.4 blocks per game this season and does it all for an experienced Milwaukee squad.
