Bucks sweep Pistons to snap long playoff win drought

Watch: Blake Griffin joins Pistons fans in 'ref you suck' chant

It also would be relatively surprising despite Boston's obvious talent, as Milwaukee won 60 games while finishing the regular season with the East's No. 1 seed and looked as risky as ever in its first-round sweep of the Detroit Pistons.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 41 points as the Bucks reached the second round of the postseason for the first time since 2000-01 season when they made it all the way to the National Basketball Association semi-finals.

Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks shoots the ball against the Detroit Pistons during Game Four of Round One of the 2019 NBA Playoffs on April 22, 2019 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

"It's definitely insane", he told a news conference. Antetokounmpo completed the feat after going up with his right hand.

Arya Stark's Age in Season 8
The second episode in the final season of the insanely popular TV show, Game of Thrones , packed a bunch of surprises for fans. And it turns out Williams was caught off guard when reading the script, even dismissing her Arya Stark sex scene as a prank.

Antetokounmpo talked up the togetherness of Milwaukee, who finished top of the Eastern Conference during the regular season.

The Bucks will take on the Boston Celtics in round two of the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Remarkably, according to NBA Stats, Antetokounmpo's display is the first time in league history that a player has scored more than 40 markers in less than 32 minutes of action in a playoff game.

"I think we played great basketball, stuck together the whole series".
