The Brew Hoop Podcast Episode 26: Would a Sweep By Any Other Team Taste So Sweet?

Milwaukee breaks through to the second round

NBA: Playoffs-Milwaukee Bucks at Detroit Pistons Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a long, winding journey to get to this point, but we’ve done. Finally, we can chat about the Milwaukee Bucks first Playoff series win since 2001. In today’s episode, we revel in the delight and reflect on what this means for a franchise that’s been stuck in neutral for nearly 18 years. Even if it was a series with a clear talent discrepancy, it still felt quite satisfying to see the Bucks emerge with yet another decimating win.

After that, we turn our sights to the second round where the Boston Celtics await. Did we learn anything more about the Celtics from their swift work over the Pacers, or is it just another blip during their disjointed season? Where might the Bucks have the advantage at individual matchups, and are the Bucks deeper than the vaunted depth of the Celtics? Then, we make our personal predictions for the series. Spoiler: Riley is feeling GOOD about the Bucks’ chances.
