Every upstart team, such as this season's Bucks, has a show-and-tell to play before we typecast them as contenders or pretenders. The telling is done during the regular season, where the Bucks have already told us more than an earful about their potential; now, it's time for them to show it in the playoffs.

CoY favorite Mike Budenholzer needs to show he can maximize his first superstar-helmed roster in a seven-game series; the league-best regular-season team needs to show that it's not just paper tigers; and MVP frontrunner Giannis needs to show that he's the BITW come playoffs time.

And why shouldn't Giannis do so at least in this series? No one has the stature to guard him against for Andre Drummond and a hobbled Blake Griffin—neither of whom would be agile enough to keep up with the athletic Power Forward from the perimeter. Giannis hasn't fully rhythmized his jumpshot yet; but as he's already proven as a top-five scorer in the league, he doesn't need one to score prolifically—much less against Detroit's pitiable paint defense.

If all goes well, the Bucks will also show that they can replicate their regular-season sweep of the Pistons in this series.

And after an eighteen-year-long drought of playoffs-series victories, the Bucks will show that they're finally owning the future they've sloganeered for several years.

Bottom-line prediction: Bucks in four.

I gave Detroit one , cause Bucks could stink it up , under pressure or some dam
absurd shooting off night , standing around flat.
It will be perfect for Coach Bud to kick some as$ and get them to the title series.

Everyone's talking about what a mis-match GS vs. LAC is. Is this series any more competitive?

I say Bucks in 5 out of respect for Blake's talent but if he's legit hurt this really should be a sweep. Hopefully the absence of Brogdon doesn't matter in this one, definitely will against Boston tho.

Bucks woud have to be playing with such a level of boredom to lose a game in this series.

Respect to blake? Who's blake? They swept them in the regular season by a wide margin. Bucks ain't losing one game this series, easy sweep is easy

Detroit Pistons vs Milwaukee Bucks
The Detroit Pistons are a solid team but they’re heavily outgunned and outmanned due to Blake Griffin’s injury. While the Bucks may not be staffed with seasoned playoff veterans, they have the best player in the game, and they are elite on offense and defense.
Milwaukee, 4-0

Pistons are a one man team for the most part and Blake is the man. He's banged up. If he's healthy and other guys show up I can see the Pistons stealing one game...that's it. Series 4-1 Bucks.

It wasn't gonna be close with Blake, but without him it's a ****ing wash. Easy sweep.
