  • Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo falls to the floor after being fouled by Detroit Pistons' Thon Maker during the first half of Game 1

Giannis Antetokounmpo (26 points) and Khris Middleton (24 points) combined to score 77 points for the Bucks, while Pat Connaughton added 18 points (on 8-for-10 shooting) to go along with nine rebounds off the bench. Milwaukee ranks seventh in the National Basketball Association with 26 assists per game.

Game 3 is scheduled for Saturday in Detroit, where the eighth-seeded Pistons will try to snap a 12-game postseason losing streak that dates back to 2008.

Luke Kennard scored 19 points and Reggie Jackson added 18 points for Detroit. Now, they just need to keep living up to that billing.

As mentioned above, the Bucks entered the half down one point to the Pistons, to the surprise of many.
