In the NBA playoffs, we will see Detroit Pistons at Milwaukee Bucks.
The Pistons haven’t been in the postseason for the past 5 years and they finally managed to get there. The team is averaging 107 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 107.3 points on 46.9 percent shooting. Blake Griffin has had a fantastic season being the team’s leading scorer with 24.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game while Andre Drummond was the real force on defense and he is also averaging 17.3 points and 15.6 rebounds.
The Milwaukee Bucks are in the playoffs for a third straight season but this time they are the number one seed in the East. The team is averaging 118 points per game while allowing 109.3 points. Giannis is the team’s best player and an MVP candidate along with James Harden. He is averaging 27.7 points per game and 12.5 rebounds while Khris Middleton is helping him on offense with 18.2 points and 4.3 assists.
The spread shows no respect to the Pistons who are not that bad. We understand that they are dreadful on the road but Drummond and Griffin in the paint are not the best match up for Giannis. I expect this game to be very close with the Bucks coming out on top at the end.
