Milwaukee swept Detroit four games to none this season, but some things have changed since their last meeting. For example, the Bucks traded Thon Maker to the Pistons.
Milwaukee was the only NBA team to win 60 games this season, resting starters in a 127-116 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on the final night of the regular season. That's been a common practice for the Bucks this April, with the top seed in the East in tow and home-court advantage at every stage of the playoffs.
That journey begins in the first round with the Pistons, who won on Wednesday over the toothless Knicks while Orlando knocked off Charlotte and knocked them out of the playoffs.
A schedule of the NBA Playoffs will release overnight Wednesday into Thursday when the NBA regular season has concluded.
