The Detroit Pistons made the playoffs for the first time since 2016 after beating the New York Knicks 115-89 to secure the 8th seed.
The Pistons will face the Bucks in the first round.
"We knew what was at stake. We knew that [the Knicks] were coming in to try to ruin our season that we worked so hard for," said Andre Drummond.
The Pistons were playing without Blake Griffin, who was out with a sore knee. Dwane Casey added that he was not sure if Griffin would be available for game 1.
"I think these few days off will help, and we'll just see where he is at that time," said Casey about Griffin.
