A reminder of what the Pistons need from Milwaukee to make the playoffs:
For those wondering, the Pistons own tiebreaker thanks to division record.— Hardwood Paroxysm (@HPbasketball) April 2, 2018
Milwaukee will have to lose at least 4 of 5 and Detroit will have to win out or go 4 of 5 to catch.
But the Pistons are still alive. https://t.co/R8vVzNRmC4
Boston is not going to play nice and help Detroit, though:
If you’re keeping score at home, that is the FOUR primary point guard options for the Celtics (Kyrie Irving, Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier, and Shane Larkin) out for tonight’s game. It is an enormous credit to Brad Stevens that the Celtics could still sneak off and win this one.
Of course, Milwaukee already blew ONE sure win this week. Who knows what could be in store?
