The "Greek Freak" saved his best game of the first round for the closeout, scoring a playoff career-high 41 points to lead the Bucks to their first playoff series win since 2001. If the Bucks advance, they will face the Boston Celtics - which swept the Indiana Pacers.

Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo earned another early rest against the Pistons.

But the Celtics are an intriguing candidate to play spoiler, as they were preseason favorites to win the East and appear to be jelling at the right time after a tumultuous regular season.

During the first half of the Detroit Pistons-Milwaukee Bucks game on Monday, Pistons star Blake Griffin joined the Detroit fans in a "ref you suck" chant.

Boston will have to wait to prove itself against Milwaukee, though, as Game 1 won't happen until this weekend. After a two-year hiatus, Detroit was represented in the National Basketball Association playoffs for just the second time this decade.
