After the Boston Celtics shocked the NBA Eastern Conference top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in Game One of their conference semifinal playoff series, blowing out the host Bucks by 22 points, per Basketball Reference, the Bucks turned the tables in Game Two, cruising past Boston 123-102. That sets up a pivotal Game Three that could go a long way toward deciding the series as the teams relocate to Boston — and the Celtics hope they can get star Kyrie Irving back on track in front of the home crowd after a disappointing nine-point showing in Game Two, as the third game will live stream from TD Garden.

To find out how to watch a live stream of Game Three in the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Boston Celtics NBA Eastern Conference Semifinal series, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. The game gets underway at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time at the 18,600-seat TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, on Friday, May 3.

That start time is 5 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time, 7 p.m. Central. In the United Kingdom, tipoff time will be 1 a.m. British Summer Time on Saturday morning, May 4.

“This is what I signed up for,” Irving said, according to the NBA site. “This is what Boston traded for me for: being able to go back in the trenches, get ready for another battle.”

But that battle will come directly against Milwaukee’s Eric Bledsoe, who after a lackluster first game, clamped down on Irving to hold the six-time All Star to just four made field goals in 18 shots from the floor, per the NBA website.

Bledsoe himself scored 21 with five assists after slumping to only six points in Game One, per BR, while the combination of likely NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khiris Middleton combined for 57 — with 29 and 28 points respectively.

After their sweep of the Indiana Pacers in the first round of the playoffs, the Celtics have yet to lose a home game in the current postseason.
