Milwaukee Bucks vs. Detroit Pistons Preview and Predictions 04-22-2019 in NBA

Blake Griffin made his Detroit Pistons playoff debut in Game 3 on Saturday, but it didn't make much difference in the final result. The Pistons will try to avoid being swept in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference series when they host the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 on Monday.

The Bucks breezed to double-digit wins at home in the first two games of the series and refused to take their foot off the gas on the road, cruising out to a 22-point lead through three quarters and finishing with a 119-103 victory. "We might be the No. 1 seed and the best team in the NBA, but at the end of the day we haven't won a playoff series in a while and we're hungry," Milwaukee superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo told reporters. "I think everybody's hungry. It starts from our coach. It starts from the leader setting the tone. We're just going to keep fighting, we're going to keep playing hard and try to win as many games as possible." The Pistons shot 38.5 percent from the floor in the loss and failed to capitalize on the emotion with Griffin returning and the fans in the arena on their side. "We made some uncharacteristic mistakes," Detroit coach Dwane Casey told reporters. "That's what the playoffs are about - getting through that, understanding time-score-situation. We had situations where we'd make a mistake or miss a shot, now we go down to the defensive end and not carry out our assignments."

TV: 8 p.m. ET, TNT, FS Detroit

ABOUT THE BUCKS: Milwaukee only got 14 points on 5-of-13 shooting in 28 minutes from Antetokounmpo in Game 3 but still breezed with seven scorers in double figures. "They can't sleep on anyone," center Brook Lopez, who scored 19 points and blocks five shots on Saturday, told reporters. "Our depth is a huge boon for us, it's a huge bonus we have. We just got to keep going to that. We've been putting trust in a lot of different people all season long and guys have been showing why we've been doing that." Khris Middleton scored a team-high 20 points while Ersan Ilyasova broke out with 15 points off the bench.

ABOUT THE PISTONS: Center Andre Drummond shot 53.3 percent from the field in the regular season but stumbled to 5-of-14 in Game 3. "He missed some tough ones," Griffin told reporters of Drummond. "He might have just rushed a few here and there. We've leaned on the big fella all season long and he's a big reason why we're in the playoffs. It's the playoffs. It's basketball. It'll happen to me. It'll happen to everybody on the other team. It'll happen to everybody on our team at some point. As teammates, we're there to pick each other up and help guys out." Griffin played with a brace on his left knee and logged 31 minutes but struggled to keep pace in transition.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. The Pistons are enduring a 13-game postseason losing streak.

2. Milwaukee PF Nikola Mirotic went 3-of-5 from 3-point range on Saturday after struggling to 0-of-6 in the first two games.

3. Detroit SG Luke Kennard averaged 20 points in the first two games but was held to nine in Game 3.

PREDICTION: Bucks 122, Pistons 107

Houston Rockets vs. Utah Jazz Preview and Predictions 04-22-2019 in NBA

The Utah Jazz did about as well as any team can possibly do defensively against James Harden in Game 3 and still couldn't come away with a victory. The Jazz will try to avoid a four-game sweep of the Western Conference series when they host Harden and the fourth-seeded Houston Rockets in Game 4 on Monday.

Harden missed his first 15 field-goal attempts and finished 3-of-20 from the floor but came through with a pair of 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and had no trouble getting to the free-throw line while finishing with 22 points in the 104-101 victory. "Keep shooting, keep being aggressive," Harden told reporters. "0-of-15, 14-of-15, 15-of-15, my job is to go out there and produce and be aggressive and in attack mode. Nothing changes. ... I didn't shoot the ball well, and we still won. Guys stepped up major tonight, and that's what we're going to need." Utah only held a slim advantage for most of the first three quarters despite Harden's off night and realize it missed an opportunity. "We didn't capitalize as much as we needed to, especially during a stretch there in the third quarter where I thought we had a chance to build a little bit of a lead," Jazz coach Quin Snyder told reporters. "We got some looks that we had to take, and they didn't fall."

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT, AT&T SportsNet Southwest (Houston), AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain (Utah)

ABOUT THE ROCKETS: Chris Paul scored 18 points, Clint Capela recorded a double-double with 11 points and 14 rebounds and P.J. Tucker scored the last of his 12 points at the free-throw line to seal the win on Saturday. Harden scored 14 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and added 10 assists and six steals in the victory. "They played him tough, there's no doubt about it," Houston coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters of Harden. "They got into him, and they did what they were supposed to do, but James normally figures that stuff out anyway. So, he just didn't have a great night - and it happens."

ABOUT THE JAZZ: Utah star guard Donovan Mitchell scored a series-high 34 points in Game 3 but missed a wide-open look at a 3-pointer that would have tied the game with under 10 seconds left and missed five of his 17 free-throw attempts. "We had the right mindset and were aggressive, but we've got to capitalize," Mitchell told reporters. "You can't give a team like this multiple opportunities. I wouldn't say it all came down to (missed free throws), but it definitely would've helped." Jazz center Rudy Gobert turned in his best defensive performance of the series in the Game 3 loss, blocking seven shots after managing a total of one block in the first two contests.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Jazz SF Joe Ingles is 4-of-17 from 3-point range in the series.

2. Houston hasn't swept a playoff series since taking three straight from the Minnesota Timberwolves in the first round of the 1997 postseason.

3. Utah PF Jae Crowder made his first start of the series in Game 3 and finished with five points in 24 minutes.

PREDICTION: Jazz 106, Rockets 98
