Bucks win fourth quarter, which everyone knows is by far the most important quarter.
Giannis with career highs in points (15), rebounds (7), minutes (33).
If you define a win as Giannis setting career-high for minutes, Bucks improve to 1-0 tonight.
On this date in 2013, Miroslav Raduljica tied an NBA career-high with 2 blocks.
Silver lining...? Side of San Antonio jerseys.
You'd never guess Tim Duncan is 37 by the way he's playing tonight. Dominant. 21 pts, 16 boards through 3rd Q.
Spurs ahead 82-49 in third and fans already heading for exits. And it's cold out there.
Bucks starters were 5 of 18 from field first half - trail 63-40 at half.
At halftime, Tim Duncan leads all players in Tim Duncan. Bucks trail.

Bucks down 17-6. Yes, these Spurs are always good.
If you think you are cold, just imagine these Spurs fans here tonight, who naturally drove from San Antonio.
Aron Baynes has a sprained left ankle and will not play for Spurs vs. Bucks tonight. He had 14 points in Toronto on Tuesday in Spurs win.

Hobo Ersan has definitely surpassed Emo Bogut as my all-time favorite Bucks alter-ego. http://t.co/ALtHimNk8U
If Gery wants us to be outraged over Sanders punching someone on last year's team, we need a name. Some really punchable dudes on that team.
Your hustle don't ever go unnoticed....
Henson (in 574 minutes so far) has now surpassed his block total from last year (827 minutes). 46 through 21 games vs. 42 in 63 games.
Bucks now 2 games behind Jazz in lotto standings...and 4 games out of 8th spot. Sorry, had to point that out.
How to celebrate a win in Chicago: 14 pizzas from Lou Malnati's in Milwaukee locker room after game.
Drew kept Henson as 6th man even when injuries first hit Sanders/Ersan, presumably to avoid starting controversy. But he's been way too good
Henson now averaging 17.0 ppg and 10.4 rpg in five December games. Most productive Buck by a mile through 21 games.
Three straight wins for Bucks here in Chicago/Milwaukee South.
Bucks beat Bulls 78-74 as Henson finishes with 25-14-6. Knight has 19 and 10 rebs. Ilyasova with 10 points. Dunleavy leads Bulls with 24.
Ilyasova hits both and fans at UC head to exits. Bucks lead by 5.
Wolters to inbound ball. Ilyasova fouled with 4.2 left.
I hate the Bulls, but I'm genuinely sad for Dunleavy.
Hinrich drives and feeds Boozer but he loses ball out of bounds. Bucks ball with 6.2 left.
Best defensive night of season for Bucks was holding Celtics to 85. Bulls have 72 here with 13 seconds to go.
That should be Knight's path closed down.
Udoh tosses up an airball after Knight's pass closed off. Now Bulls timeout with 13.1 left. Dunleavy time?
Henson hits a 25-foot fade with clock running down for 75-72 lead. Then he tips ball and gets rebound off Snell miss. Bucks ball - 29.7 left
Hope you just saw that John Henson shot.

Season-high 20 points for John Henson. End of third quarter.
Henson has 16 points, 12 boards and could be on way to 20-15 night anyway. Already has played 33 minutes tonight late in third quarter.

And now we have Wolters-Marquis Teague matchup.
Drew said before game rookie Nate Wolters will be backup point again tonight.
Giannis and Ilyasova are first Bucks subs. Tony Snell hits a 3 and a layup. Snell was star for New Mexico Lobos.
If Khris Middleton makes his next three pointer, he will be back up to 50.0 % on threes this season.
Apparently Kirk Hinrich 20-footers are an acceptable shot outcome for the Bulls. Related: the Bucks lead 11-5.
Carlos Boozer picks up second foul early and Bulls sub in Taj Gibson. Erik Murphy in for center Nazr Mohammed. Bucks lead 11-5.
