Milwaukee Bucks' Mike Budenholzer Named "Coach of the Year" By NBA Peers

Milwaukee Bucks' Mike Budenholzer Named

A GAPING VOID - Blake Griffin's sore left knee will have had a full week and a day off when the Pistons and Bucks tip off Game 2 on Wednesday night.

Within six minutes the lead had grown to 17 points and victory looked assured after the opening quarter behind the 38-18 lead.

Antetokounmpo was one of seven Bucks in double figures, finishing with 24 points and 17 rebounds in 23 minutes. Reggie Jackson added 12 points and five assists.

Going up against the best team in the National Basketball Association was always going to be a tough ask, but the Pistons didn't put up enough fight to even fill fans with hope.

"I don't know if they were ready for us", Antetokounmpo said.

After two of the other contenders in the East, the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers, opened up their first-round series by losing at home to lower seeded-teams on Saturday, the Bucks made sure there would be no upset taking place at Fiserv Forum.

But he wasn't the only Pistons player who failed to deliver during the Game 1 Bucks route.

"I think it was top-notch today", Bledsoe said of the Bucks' defensive performance. But while the Pistons were getting buried under Milwaukee's first-quarter assault, the Pistons took just one 3-pointer among their first 10 shots and finished the quarter with just four 3-point attempts in 26 shots. Budenholzer said he was concerned about the rebounding battle and going against league-leading rebounder Drummond (15.6 per game). "He is just going to put his head down and keep driving in there".

In street clothes on the bench, Griffin was given a technical foul for arguing with an official while Drummond's foul was being reviewed. We've been friends. But I know he's a competitor. Mirotic had missed the last 11 regular-season games after fracturing his left thumb on March 19 against the Los Angeles Lakers.

That's as close as the Pistons would get, however, as the Bucks stretched the lead to 70-43 by halftime.

Milwaukee: F Nikola Mirotic played 15 minutes while scoring four points on 2-of-8 shooting. They scored 77 against Philadelphia in the Eastern Division semifinals in March 1970.
