The Milwaukee Bucks, using the brilliant inspiration of Giannis Antetokounmpo, wrapped up their first playoff series win since 2001 on Monday night after a 127-104 win in Detroit that saw them sweep the Pistons. The Greek Freak was at his best, scoring nearly impossible baskets and repelling shots like a more agile and scary Dikembe Mutombo.
He collected 41 points in all in the win, the most he’s ever managed in a playoff game. With the win, a streak of eight first round series losses came to an end. Milwaukee, since the first time since Jesus Shuttleworth played for them, has now moved into the second round. They will face off against the Boston Celtics, a team that also swept their first round opponent away.
