MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (97.1 The Ticket) – The first game of the Pistons' first round series against top-seeded Milwaukee quickly became a nightmare.
The Bucks started the game in a 10-2 run and never looked back, leading by 20 at the end of the first quarter and by 27 at halftime.
As the margin increased to more than 40 points, embarrbadment worsened even more for the Pistons when a frustrated Andre Drummond brazenly pushed Giannis Antetokounmpo as he climbed a basket after bringing an offensive rebound. After the review, Drummond was hit with a Flagrant 2 foul and was released from the game.
