Game 1 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals starts tonight as the No. 3 seed Milwaukee Bucks host the No. 5 seed Atlanta Hawks. Both teams are entering this series after second round playoff series that went the distance to seven games.

For the Bucks, they will be looking to win their first Conference championship since 1974 and their first NBA championship since 1971, when they beat the team that’s now known as the Washington Wizards.

As for the Hawks, they are back in the Conference Finals for the first time since 2015. They will also look to win their first conference and NBA championship since 1958.

Giannis Antetokounmpo vs. Trae Young. A two-time NBA MVP against one of the up and coming stars. It doesn’t get much better than this!

You can watch this game on TNT. And chat about it here.
