The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Detroit Pistons 127-104 on Monday night. That would complete the first round sweep. Something that hasn’t been done by the Bucks in ages. It was their first playoff series win since Ray Allen was on the team in 2001.
Giannis led the way with 41 points and nine rebounds. He had multiple game-changing blocks and emphatic dunks to put his stamp on the first round. Khris Middleton also chipped in 18 points of his own on their way to victory.
Next up, the Boston Celtics. It will be a highly anticipated matchup that will be entertaining throughout. Both teams swept in the first round so they will be well rested for the Eastern Conference semifinals. The dates of those games will be announced after the first round is over.
