The Bucks last won an National Basketball Association title in 1971, but start this year's playoffs as the top seed in the Eastern Conference after a 60-22 regular season. they pair up against the Detroit Pistons, who are playing their first playoff series since 2016.

The Pistons only really caught up to Antetokounmpo when centre Andre Drummond shoved him to the ground with both hands late in the third quarter, after the MVP candidate grabbed an offensive rebound with Detroit trailing by 41 points. George Hill scored 16 points off the bench. "It's a great experience for us to come in and play against a great team like Milwaukee".

Griffin will be listed as day to day for the remainder of the series, with a league source calling it a "slim chance" he plays this weekend.

Jayson Tatum finished with 15 points.

With the emphasis on Bruce Wayne in the description, it's impossible to tell if we'll ever see Glen in the cowl or not. Glen is best known for portraying the disgraced knight Jorah Mormount on HBO's Game of Thrones .

Thon Maker started in place of Griffin as he did in the regular-season finale. "He wakes up in the morning ready to go.".

2018-2019 was Budenholzer's first as the head coach of a completely revitalized Milwaukee Bucks that profited from selfless play, the emergence of Giannis Antetokounmpo, and selfless play from the rest of the unit.

Milwaukee: Mirotic was available and played 15 minutes while scoring four points. The Bucks' 70 points were the second-most in a first half in franchise history.

Griffin has battled the injury for the past several weeks, getting pulled from the Pistons' second-to-last game against Memphis and missing the season finale against NY, games the Pistons needed to win - and did - to qualify for the last playoff spot. They scored 77 against Philadelphia in the Eastern Division semifinals in March 1970. "It's not the big guys' job or the center; we have to do it collectively", Budenholzer said.
