MILWAUKEE -- It's an exciting time in Milwaukee sports, and the city of Milwaukee is ready to get things started.

According to Milwaukee Bucks Senior Vice President Alex Lasry, just like in Chicago on St. Patrick's Day, the Milwaukee River will be dyed green to celebrate the opening weekend of the NBA Playoffs for the Bucks.

The first playoff game will be on Saturday, April 13 or Sunday, April 14 at Fiserv Forum.

The Bucks will find out their opponent following Wednesday's final regular season match-ups. As of right now, their potential opponents are the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic and Charlotte Hornets.

With the number one seed clinched, the Bucks will begin every playoff series at home.
