Detroit, MI - 

Milwaukee became the second team to advance to the second round of the playoffs Monday.

The Bucks topped the Pistons 127-104 in Detroit to complete a first-round sweep, giving them their first playoff series win since 2000-01. Blake Griffin did all he could to keep the Pistons alive, totaling 22 points, five rebounds and six assists. But it wasn't enough. The Bucks advance to face the Celtics in the second round. Boston knocked Milwaukee out of the playoffs last season in a seven-game series.
