Bucks on pace to sweep Pistons
The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Detroit Pistons 103:119 in game three of the NBA playoffs and are one win away from sweeping the series.
Although Giannis Antetokounmpo was not on his best night offensively, the quality of the Milwaukee Bucks outclassed the Detroit Pistons once again on Saturday night. The visitors took control of the game early on and finished the first quarter up by eight points (24:32). By the halftime mark, the Bucks increased their advantage to double digits, leading 54:67 at the break.
Middleton and Brown led the Bucks’ charge in the third quarter and the advantage grew up to as many as 24 points, with the score at 78:102 heading into the final period. The Pistons knew it was all said and done and the fourth quarter simply secured the Bucks 103:119 victory.
Giannis finished the game with a double double, 14 points and 10 rebounds, while Chris Midleton led the Bucks with 20 points. Blake Griffin notched 27 points for the Pistons.
The Bucks now lead the series 3:0 and need just one win to book their place into the next round of the NBA Playoffs, where they will likely meet the Boston Celtics. Game four is scheduled for Monday night at 8 PM in Detroit.
