Pistons returned to playoffs but still have a way to go

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Pistons haven't made the playoffs much in the last decade - and when they have, their stay has been a short one.

So after being swept by top-seeded Milwaukee this year, the Pistons hope this is just a start.

"It was exciting. It was a lot of fun," guard Luke Kennard said. "Obviously not what we wanted to happen when we got there, but getting there was our first goal as a team. There's just a lot to learn from it."
