  • Top-seeded Bucks start postseason journey against Detroit

    The Milwaukee Bucks had the best record in the NBA this season, so it would be no great surprise to see them playing for the title in June. The Bucks are an unusual top seed - one that hasn't made it past the first round of the playoffs since 2001. Advancing to round two may be the absolute minimum expectation this time, when Milwaukee starts its postseason journey Sunday night against eighth-seeded Detroit.

  • Report: Blake Griffin likely sidelined entire series with Bucks due to knee pain

    Without Blake Griffin, the Detroit Pistons are no match for the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday. Detroit probably doesn't stand much of a chance against Milwaukee even if Griffin plays, but without the forward who averaged 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game season — and was the fulcrum of their offense — the Pistons were utterly overwhelmed in Game 1, 121-86. We may be seeing that movie again this series because Griffin's knee pain could keep him out the entire first round, reports Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports.

  • Giannis not looking for protection from 'dirty' playoff tactics

    Giannis Antetokounmpo insists he will not be looking to the officials for protection in the playoffs despite Andre Drummond's rugged attempts to disrupt his flow. The Milwaukee Bucks star led his side to a dominant 121-86 home win over the Detroit Pistons in Game 1 of their first-round series on Sunday, contributing 24 points and 17 rebounds. Antetokounmpo carried on where he left off in the regular season and opponent Drummond had no answer, earning a flagrant two foul and an ejection after shoving the Greek to the floor.

  • Sources: Pistons' Blake Griffin likely to miss first-round series with Bucks

    Detroit Pistons star Blake Griffin will likely miss the entire first-round series against the Milwaukee Bucks because of a left knee injury, sources told Yahoo Sports. 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 New York, games the Pistons needed to win — and did — to qualify for the last playoff spot. Without Griffin, the Pistons were no match for the top-seeded Bucks in Game 1 on Sunday night, losing 121-86 at Fiserv Forum.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bucks thoroughly dominate Pistons in Game 1 victory

    Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks to a dominant Game 1 victory on Sunday. If there was any doubting how good the Milwaukee Bucks can be, the NBA's top seed erased it on Sunday. The Bucks dominated a short-handed Detroit Pistons team, 121-86, in Game 1 of the opening round of the playoffs.

  • Milwaukee River dyed green to celebrate Bucks' playoff run

    The river in downtown Milwaukee has been turned green – on purpose. It's not algae but a dye that has given the Milwaukee River an eye-popping bright green hue to celebrate the Milwaukee Bucks and the team's color as they head into the NBA playoffs seeded No. 1 in the Eastern Conference. Mayor Tom Barrett and Bucks President Peter Feigin watched from a bridge Friday as boats crisscrossed the river shooting green dye into the water.

  • Bucks-Pistons, Celtics-Pacers Preview

    Detroit Pistons (41-41) at Milwaukee Bucks (60-22) Game 1 implied score: 103.5, Bucks 116 Season series: 4-0, Bucks Team net ratings: Pistons -0.4 (17th), Bucks +8.6 (1st) Pistons injuries: Blake Griffin (sore left knee, questionable for Game 1) Bucks injuries: Malcolm Brogdon (foot, out for series), Nikola Mirotic (thumb, questionable for Game 1), Tony Snell (ankle, day-to-day), Pau Gasol (ankle, out indefinitely) The unavoidable conclusion is that this series will be lopsided in the Bucks' favor. They won the season series 4-0 and a postseason sweep is very possible, especially if Blake Griffin's left knee forces him to miss games.

  • Pistons F Griffin day-to-day heading into playoffs

    Blake Griffin's sore left knee remains bothersome enough to keep the Detroit Pistons forward listed as day-to-day heading into Saturday's playoff opener against the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks. The Pistons were able to roll past the lowly Knicks anyway and grab the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. A heavy underdog heading into the first round, the Pistons will need a productive Griffin to have any chance at upsetting the Bucks.

  • I want to win - Kemba Walker unsure of Hornets future

    The Charlotte Hornets guard says his upcoming decision will not be based solely on many and will instead focus on whether the team can win. The Hornets missed the playoffs for the third straight season in 2018-19, finishing ninth in the Eastern Conference - two games back from the eighth-ranked Detroit Pistons - with a 39-43 record. Walker explained that Charlotte will have to show him that they have the ability to build sufficient talent around him if he is to stay put.
