Fansided: Takeaways from the Detroit Pistons Finale versus the Milwaukee Bucks
No, not that MVP. Not Giannis Antetokounmpo, the likely MVP of the National Basketball Association. The chants were for Blake Griffin during a standing ovation, far and away the most valuable player of the Detroit Pistons.
No current player embodies the city of Detroit like Griffin does. Not just counting the Pistons, but all four of the professional sports teams, sitting kitty corner from each other downtown. After only a season and a half, Griffin carried his team on his back to what was the Pistons' second playoff appearance of the decade, and the first playoff series ever held at Little Caesars Arena.
Fansided: Milwaukee Bucks: Player grades from 127-104 Game 4 win over Detroit Pistons
The Detroit Pistons did all they could to extend the wait further, but after 18 years of searching for a playoff series victory, the Milwaukee Bucks were not to be denied any longer.
There will be no Game 5, with the Bucks' focus instead shifting to a second round series against the Boston Celtics, the only other team to have swept their way through the first round.
For moments in the first half, Bucks fans could have been forgiven for wondering if the Bucks were going to be able to wrap this one up in four games, though.
Brew Hoop: Milwaukee vs. Detroit: Bucks Blast Pistons for First Playoff Series Win in 18 Years
Praise Giannis Milwaukee Bucks fans, for he will lead us from darkness and into prosperity. That certainly was the case against the Detroit Pistons, as his playoff career-high effort led to a 127-104 victory to close out the Bucks first playoff series win since 2001. It wasn't a pretty start for the Bucks, but they regained momentum from the Pistons and worked back within a 28-26 game after the first quarter. Despite several highlight plays from Giannis Antetokounmpo throughout the second, the Pistons quelled the storm with sweet shooting and led 62-56 at half.
Official Site of the Pistons: Pistons don't quit scrapping, but a 41-12 free-throw disparity paves way for Bucks sweep
Three quick observations from Monday night's 127-104 Game 4 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks at Little Caesars Arena
END OF THE LINE - Dwane Casey challenged his team's pride to avoid a first-round sweep and the Pistons responded with easily the most competitive game of the series - it was a one-point game late in the third quarter before the Bucks overwhelmed them in the fourth quarter - but one that they ultimately lost in large part because they sent Milwaukee to the foul line way too much - growing increasingly frustrated with the lopsided foul tally as the game went on.
Detroit Free Press: 'We'll be fine': Pistons start strong, still broomed by Bucks
The Pistons were swept handily, by double digits in each of the four games and but team owner Tom Gores remains optimistic. Rod Beard, The Detroit News
Detroit -- Andre Drummond played better. Blake Griffin played hard. Reggie Jackson played well. The Pistons had a double-digit lead and played their best game of the playoff series -- and still lost be a large margin.
It's a testament to how good the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks are -- and how far the Pistons will have to come in the offseason to catch up with the new dominant team in the Eastern Conference.
Detroit Bad Boys: Pistons vs Bucks final score: Pistons season ends at hands of Bucks, 127-104
The 2018-19 Detroit Pistons season ended tonight at home at Little Caesars Arena against the Milwaukee Bucks, 127-104.
In half number one, Detroit showed an extra gear -- and an extra collective will, dare I say-- than we've seen. The Bucks seemed dialed-in, it was just that the Pistons were crisper, quicker, feistier, and the ball was going in the bucket a bit more than it was for the Bucks. It wasn't a fluke -- the Pistons had a lot to do with it. Detroit led 62-56 at the half.
The bench chipped in with pesky defense and timely shooting with Langston Galloway and Luke Kennard both shooting 3-of-6 from the field.
