Milwaukee Bucks' Mike Budenholzer Named "Coach of the Year" By NBA Peers

Milwaukee Bucks' Mike Budenholzer Named

Budenholzer led the Bucks to 60 victories and the league's best record in his first season with Milwaukee. Reggie Jackson added 12 points and five assists. Antetokounmpo had 14 points and 10 rebounds while Lopez added 14 points and Hill contributed 13. A big reason for their inconsistent play late in the season was the knee injury that limited star forward Blake Griffin and kept him out of their final game of the season.

Milwaukee's advantage reached 30 just 26 seconds into the second half when Brown made a 3-pointer.

Detroit: Casey said Griffin was "day-to-day but too sore to go" in Game 1.

"What I didn't understand was an official coming over and having a conversation with a player that's not even playing and giving him a technical", Casey said.

Jayson Tatum finished with 15 points. "You don't have to say giddy-up to Thon Maker", Casey said. He avoided a flagrant foul when he brought Antetokounmpo to the floor in the second quarter.

The Pistons will have a couple days to regroup before Game 2 tips off Wednesday night.

Milwaukee Bucks' head coach Mike Budenholzer has his troops marching into the 2019 NBA Playoffs a confident bunch.

Kyrie Irving and Marcus Morris each scored 20 points, and Boston rallied in the second half to beat in in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series. Budenholzer said he was concerned about the rebounding battle and going against league-leading rebounder Drummond (15.6 per game).

Griffin has battled the injury for the past several weeks, getting pulled from the Pistons' second-to-last game against Memphis and missing the season finale against NY, games the Pistons needed to win - and did - to qualify for the last playoff spot. They scored 77 in March 1970.
