Blake Griffin Likely To Miss The Entire First-Round Series vs

Milwaukee Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer yells instructions to players during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday

The Bucks dominated a short-handed Detroit Pistons team, 121-86, in Game 1 of the opening round of the playoffs.

The Pistons snuck into the playoffs in the eighth spot, but have not looked especially good down the stretch. Otherwise, if Griffin is too injured to play, he should sit out the remaining games. All Bucks starters tallied double-figures in points as Brook Lopez and Khris Middleton had 14 apiece and Eric Bledsoe recorded 15 and five assists.

With the win, the Bucks grab a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Griffin was coming off one of his best years ever, averaging a career-high 24.5 points per game in 75 games played. The game was such a mess, Antetokounmpo worked on his 3-point shot early-on.

The Pistons struggled to score without Griffin and the bench gave them nothing outside of Kennard. Thon Maker missed more 3-point attempts than he had points.

"If it was pain, I would easily play with pain", Griffin said after Game 1, via the Detroit Free Press. He avoided a flagrant foul when he brought Antetokounmpo to the floor in the second quarter.

Rudy Gobert had 22 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Jazz. 'And you're going to want to come out on the winning side. The Bucks have performed better in almost every conceivable way, and Budenholzer's schemes and coaching are behind it. They scored 77 against Philadelphia in the Eastern Division semifinals in March 1970.

The Pistons and Bucks will return to the court for Game 2 on Wednesday night - that game will air on NBATV at 8:00pm ET.
