Budenholzer voted coach of the year by peers


Blake Griffin #23 of the Detroit Pistons looks on while playing the Memphis Grizzlies at Little Caesars Arena on April 09, 2019 in Detroit, Michigan.

Heading into Game 2, Griffin would have had ten days off but the team fears the left knee could swell up again as it did during his earlier in the season when he played after resting three games.

Griffin missed the last game of the regular season due to the knee complaint.

Sending out quite the message, the Milwaukee Bucks completely steamrolled the Detroit Pistons in Game 1 of their first round series Sunday evening at Fiserv Forum, winning 121-86. "Thank you to my colleagues across the National Basketball Association, and most importantly thank you to our players and staff in Milwaukee". It is unclear if he will require any sort of procedure in the off-season. With a career-high points average of 24.5 points along with 7.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists, he led the team to 41 wins and their first postseason appearance since 2016.

Giannis Antetokounmpo played 23 minutes. Casey has yet to announce the starting lineup for the opening game of the series.

"Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year Award for the top NBA Coach as voted by his peers is one of the most meaningful in all of pro sports", said Rick Carlisle in his statement to the press.
