It's finally here -- the Boston Celtics are back in action for the 2020-21 NBA season.
Expectations are high for the Celtics after another trip to the Eastern Conference Finals last season, and they'll get another tough test right off the bat.
Boston will host the Milwaukee Bucks at TD Garden in both teams' first game of the new campaign Wednesday night.
The Bucks finished last season with the best record in the NBA and superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo won the MVP award for the second consecutive season. However, the Bucks lost to the Miami Heat in a five-game conference semifinals series. It was a very disappointing end to Milwaukee's season.
Both of these teams intend on competing for a championship in 2021. Which team will make an early statement with a season-opening victory in Boston?
Here's how and when to watch Celtics vs. Bucks on your favorite device.
