MILWAUKEE — “Are they just a regular-season team?” the narrative setters and talking heads asked as the Bucks rolled to the N.B.A.’s best record. Then they swept a hapless Detroit Pistons team in the first round of the playoffs.
Well, that was just the first round. And Blake Griffin was injured. Can they ace a real test, like the Celtics?
They dispatched Boston in five games, barely breaking a sweat.
O.K., but Toronto? They were on the Bucks’ heels all season. They’ll put up a fight in the Eastern Conference finals.
