2022 NBA playoffs: Scores, live updates as Bulls and defending champion Bucks clash in first-round series

The Milwaukee Bucks begin their official title defense Sunday in Game 1 against the Chicago Bulls in the opening round of the NBA playoffs. Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks have dominated the Bulls in recent years, going 16-1 in their last 17 meetings, including 4-0 this season. Chicago, making its first playoff appearance since 2017, looks to change that trend. After falling behind by double-digits in the first quarter, the Bulls have fought back in a big way to make this a one-possession game entering the fourth quarter.

Capping off the Day 2 action will be the top-seeded Phoenix Suns hosting the No. 8 New Orleans Pelicans. Earlier, the Miami Heat made easy work of the Atlanta Hawks, 115-91 to take a 1-0 series lead. Also, the Celtics defeated the Nets, thanks to Jayson Tatum’s incredible buzzer-beating layup.
