The Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings square off in the first round of the Summer League playoffs on Wednesday. Here’s what you need to know ahead of the game.

The Milwaukee Bucks return to Summer League action on Wednesday night with the stakes raised from the three warm-up games they had played up until this point.

The Bucks (1-2) enter the playoff bracket of Summer League as the 14th seed, and will face off with the Sacramento Kings (0-3) who enter the first round as the 19th seed.

Having started the competition with a lifeless performance against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Bucks have bounced back and demonstrated plenty of positives in their games against the Brooklyn Nets and LA Clippers.

Now into the elimination stages of Summer League, Milwaukee will look to channel that positive momentum into a win that would see them progress to play the Dallas Mavericks in round two.

If the Bucks are bested by the Kings, they will be eliminated from the competition but still have one final game as a part of the event’s consolation bracket.

The Bucks and Kings will battle it out starting at 7.30pm CT, with this game being staged in the Thomas and Mack Center.

Before the action begins, let’s take a closer look at some of the key elements to watch out for when the game gets underway.
