MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (97.1 The Ticket) -- Game 1 of the Pistons' first round series against top-seeded Milwaukee quickly turned into a nightmare.

The Bucks started the game on a 10-2 run and never looked back, leading by 20 at the end of the first quarter and by 27 at halftime.

As the margin ballooned to more than 40 points, the embarrassment got even worse for the Pistons as a frustrated Andre Drummond blatantly shoved Giannis Antetokounmpo as he went up for a basket after bringing in an offensive rebound. After review, Drummond was hit with a Flagrant 2 foul and tossed from the game.

Blake Griffin, who did not dress for Sunday's game, was also hit with a technical foul shortly after the incident.

The Bucks went on to win 121-86.
