Pistons star Griffin expected to miss entire series vs

The Milwaukee Bucks star showed everyone why Shaquille O'Neal passed him the "Superman" nickname, as he took flight from just a little over the free throw line in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series against the Detroit Pistons.

Budenholzer led the Bucks to a league-best 60-22 record this season, leading Milwaukee to its best season in almost 40 years.

Looking ahead to Game 2, things don't seem to be looking very bright.

Vincent Goodwill's report further states that the Griffin would be listed as day-to-day for the remainder of the series.

Griffin suffered a season-ending quad injury against the Portland Trail Blazers during the 2016 playoffs and a season-ending toe injury in the 2017 playoffs against the Utah Jazz.

Griffin originally missed three games with a sprained knee prior to returning on April 5.

Griffin missed the finale against the Knicks, but Detroit still won to punch their ticket to the postseason.

Antetokounmpo was one of seven Bucks in double figures, finishing with 24 points and 17 rebounds in 23 minutes. Without Blake Griffin, as evidenced by the outcome of Game 1 on Sunday, the Pistons' will be lucky to keep any of the games within double digits.
