DET vs MIL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Milwaukee Bucks can take a 3-0 lead in the series when they play Detroit Pistons in game-3 of the first round playoff series at Little Caesars Arena, in Midtown Detroit, on Sunday morning (IST).
Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated the 3rd quarter and Milwaukee Bucks won the match 120-99 to take a 2-0 lead in the series.
The Greek-freak was a joy to watch whenever he was on the court, especially in Bucks’ big 3rd quarter where he scored 13 of his 26 points. He also had 12 rebounds in the match.
Eric Bledsoe scored a game-high 27 points, while Khris Middleton and Pat Connaughton had 24 and 18 points respectively.
This is a perfect start for Milwaukee in this series as their aim to win their first playoff sereis since 2001.
They are being helped by the fact that Detroit Pistons are nowhere near their full strength. They are playing without their best ppayer Blake Griffin, who is expected to miss the rest of the first round games.
Giannis played for just 14 minutes in the first half due to foul trouble, scoring 10 points. But he made up for the lost time as he scored Bucks’ first seven points in the 3rd quarter.
The Bucks killed off the game in that period, outscoring Pistons 35-17 to take a 93-76 lead into the fourth quarter.
Bucks didn’t let the visitors off the hook, and remained overall disciplined. They won the fourth quarter 27-23 and coasted home.
The 3rd game will be played in Detroit.
Regular Season Record-
Detroit Pistons: W-41, L-41

Players to watch out for:
Andre Drummond –Whether Detroit Pistons get something out of this series will depend a great degree on Andre Drummond and his defensive performance. For sure he can do as he leads the defensive rebounds charts having gone 15.6 rebounds per game in the regular season. The 25-year-old Center is a pretty good Center as well, scoring 17.3 points per game.
Reggie Jackson – With Blake Griffin possibly missing out the rest of the first round series, Pistons have to bring their A game against the league’s one of the best teams. Reggis Jackson has both the experience and the talent to fill the big boots. The 28-year-old has averaged 15.4 points per game in the regular season.
Giannis Antetokounmpo –The Greek-freak is a candidate for the MVP award this season. He can win it, even when James Harden is playing like a player from another planet. But so is Antetokounmpo. The 24-year-old has racked up 27.7 points per game in the regular season, hitting those points at 57.8 percent. He has made 92 steals and 110 blocks this season, which makes him a unique two-way player.
Khris Middleton – The 2018-19 season gave a career-best return for him and he is showing no signs of slowing down. In the last 10 matches, the 27-year-old has racked up points at 22 per game, making 1.3 steals per game. Against Detroit Pistons, he ava=erages 19.7 points per game.
