The rivalry between the Bucks and the Pacers has been intense throughout the season, with Indiana holding a 5-1 record against Milwaukee. The first two games of the playoff clash have lived up to expectations, showcasing standout performances from Siakam and Lillard and setting the stage for an exciting series ahead.
