The Detroit Pistons will make the relatively short trip to Fiserv Forum for Game 1 of their first round series with the Bucks on Sunday, and they'll come face to face with a 60-win Milwaukee team and a fanbase filled with a level of confidence that hasn't existed in decades.

Drummond extended his arms as Antetokounmpo went up in the one-sided affair, leading to his ejection.

Antetokounmpo once again led the way in what has been a truly incredible season as he finished with 24 points, 17 rebounds and four assists in only 23 minutes.

Milwaukee went on to win 121-86 to take a 1-0 lead over Detroit.

Seven players scored in double figures for the Bucks, who led by as many as 43 points.

Game 2 will be played in Milwaukee on Wednesday. Thon Maker was the logical replacement for Griffin - his length and lateral mobility provide the best antidote for Giannis Antetokounmpo's speed and above-the-rim playmaking - but he picked up two fouls in the game's first 75 seconds. Previous recipients of this award include Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and Detroit Pistons boss Dwane Casey.

Blake Griffin was announced as out prior to Game 1 and the Pistons were never able to overcome the loss of their star forward. He avoided a flagrant foul when he brought Antetokounmpo to the floor in the second quarter. He had four points and four rebounds in 22 minutes and was booed heavily by the home crowd. Detroit entered with a 14-3 playoff record against Milwaukee, winning all four series.

Milwaukee's Mike Budenholzer has won this season's coach of the year award, presented by the National Basketball Coaches Association. Mirotic had missed the last 11 regular-season games after fracturing his left thumb on March 19 against the Los Angeles Lakers. Luke Kennard scored 15 first-half points and hit 6 of 10 shots including all three Pistons makes from the 3-point arc, Kennard going 3 of 4 and his teammates missing all 10 of their attempts. They scored 77 in March 1970.

"I have watched that kid since he got drafted so I know his game like the back of my hand", Drummond said. "I think we did a great job setting the tone, playing hard together", Giannis said when he arrived at the podium.
