Troy Pierce | April 14th, 2019

The Bucks and Pistons will tip off game one of their playoff matchup Sunday night in Milwaukee. The path each team took to get here has been very different.

Whereas, Detroit lost 7 of the final 11 games, just barely making the cut, winning their final two games of the year. While both teams rely on their stars to help them win games, both teams will need steady contributions from others to help them through the playoffs.
