The Bucks are playing like a top seed. They made pretty quick work of Detroit in games one and two and there is no reason to think they are going to struggle on the road.
Detroit is learning quickly that being on the road in the playoffs without your best player is not much fun. They are at home now and looking for respect as much as a win.
The Bucks have won the last two games by 21 and 35 points. They have dominated. This is there first road playoff game but it does not seem like enough to close the gap between these teams.
Giannis has had back to back strong games with 20+ points and 10+ boards in limited action – limited only because they have not had to play him or anyone else significant minutes.
Eric Bledsoe led the Bucks with 27 points in game two. He has always been a nice player and it just shows the depth they have in their lineup.
Also Pat Connaughton scored 18 off the bench. With Tony Snell hurt there have been more minutes available in the backcourt off the bench and he can be yet another shooter for the Bucks.
The line drops here with this game in Detroit but I am not sure how much the Bucks are going to be willing to let the Pistons bridge the gap. They have kind of been naming their score.
Blake Griffin is not expected to play in this one and the best thing the Pistons can say about the first two games is that they were competitive in the first half of game two. It is a small consolation but that game was closer than the opener.
The offense was definitely better with the trio of Andre Drummond, Reggie Jackson and Luke Kennard all scoring 18 points. Nobody else score even 10 but per the opening paragraph it was a step in the right direction. They still need more scoring though and it is not easy to identify where it comes from.
Wayne Ellington has been dreadful. He is a shooter and he is missing. You can blame him for not making them but not for not having much else to his game. I am not sure you can keep starting him but where else can they really go.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
The line on this one is down under double digits and looks like a but of a steal. The venue has changed but the story looks predictable.
This one might be a little tighter throughout but late game shooting will can make a 7-8 point lead look like 12 or 13 when all is said and done pretty easily.
4* Free NBA Playoff Betting Pick: Bucks -8
It would be nice if Detroit could shake things up a but but I am not seeing it. Maybe if Blake plays but that is not likely here.
