2019 NBA Playoffs – Round 1
This is the first game of the playoffs for both teams and time for things to get real, especially for Milwaukee, who has been cruising for a while now. Can they ramp up the intensity they are going to need?
The Pistons have been plying do or die ball for a while now but that is mostly because this team squandered so many opportunities throughout the season. They are looking to show they deserve a shot.
Detroit might have gotten coach Dwayne Casey fired in year one if they had not made the playoffs. For a team that thinks it has two All-Stars it shouldn’t have been this close. .
The Pistons need to get more from their backcourt if they are to be competitive in this series. Reggie Jackson is a star in his own mind but struggles with decision making and leading. He just has to play his game, not try and outdo others. .
I believe in a general rule that you are not going to pull an upste unless your best players are your best players. That means thet Pistons are not going to have a chance unless Blake Griffin has a strong game. He can be a difference maker.
It will be interest to see how they use Andre Drummond. The Bucks ar really good at pulling centers away from the basket. They need him inside and one the boards and working onf offense to pick up fouls on Lopez..
Game one of a series is often the underdogs best chance to land a punch. I think the Pistons can connect with a blow but it might not be enough to win the game.
The Bucks have been in first place in the NBA for most of the season but it will all be for not if they can’t make it out of the first round, or further, really. They have been in the zone for most of the year but the playoffs are a different animal even if they are getting a very favourable opponent in Detroit.
This is a different team than those that have lost in the past. There is a different coach for sure and as good as Giannis has been in the past now he might be the best player in the league. The system they run creates lots of open shots and the NBA is a make or miss league. If they make them they can be really good and go far.
The talent surrounding Giannis is better than it has been in the past. Khris Middleton was an All-Star and they have so many shooters to really open things up. They can also play super big if they want to. The key will be getting over some jitters at the start.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
I think we will know in the first quarter what kind of game this is going to be. It is easy to make Milwaukee a big favourite but I think this one will be closer.
The Pistons are not going to be able to match Milwaukee bomb for bomb. Few teams can but they can rebound and keep it tight.
