Dan McCarney

Manu makes both FTs, Spurs have their largest lead at 93-84.

Dan McCarney

Giannis, you have just been Ginobilid.

Jeff McDonald

Everything is fluid. RT @ke_ne_au only six minutes again today, has he fallen out of the rotation?

Dan McCarney

Pretty good 2nd half for Kawhi: 11 points, 3 for 4, w/ 7 rebounds.

Dan McCarney

Pop flailing and gesticulating on the sideline like it's June.

Dan McCarney

Just a jump-shooting team tho...

Dan McCarney

Feels like Spurs have found a bit of a groove but still can't quite put the Bucks down for good. Eight-point lead shaved to 4 w/ 6-2 run.

Paul Garcia

In 22 minutes, Boris Diaw has 14 points on 7/10 shooting tonight. SA outscoring MIL early 9-4. SA 3/3 in paint in 4th, 1/1 from 3PT.

Dan McCarney

Boris quietly having a solid game with 12 points on 6 for 8. Much-needed on night the Spurs have had to scratch for everything.

Jeff McDonald

John Henson came down hard in that collision with Green. He hobbles off. Kenyon Martin hobbles on.

Jeff McDonald

Yes he's played well. RT @romsho I do. Cory Joseph. His defense changed the game.

Dan McCarney

Bucks shot 4 for 19 in the third.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi scored 8 of the Spurs' 22 points in the third. SA with 14-2 edge in the paint in 3Q. Kawhi 12-11 so far.

Jeff McDonald

Bucks had 12 points and eight turnovers in the third quarter.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs outscored the Bucks 22-12 in 3Q to take 69-67 lead into 4th. SA defense held MIL to 4/19 shooting in 3Q w/ 8 TOs.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs outscore #Bucks 18-5 in final 6:24 of 3rd; they lead 69-67 going to 4th at ATT Center; @Cory Joseph defense made big impact

Jeff McDonald

Not sure how the Spurs have a 69-67 lead heading to 4Q, but 20 Milwaukee turnovers through three is probably a good place to start.

Dan McCarney

Leonard has been active this quarter, up to 12 points and 11 rebounds now. Eight points during this 18-5 run.

Dan McCarney

Splitter's putback puts the Spurs back in front 66-65. 14-3 run here for the home team.

Jeff McDonald

There's the lead, Splitter with a putback of Leonard miss.

Jeff McDonald

Tied it at least. 65-65 late, 3Q.

Paul Garcia

SA is outscoring MIL 17-10 in this 3Q. SA defense holding Bucks to 3/9 shooting so far in 3Q. SA down 65-64.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili draws FTs with a chance to give Spurs their first lead since midway through the 1st quarter. Trailing 65-64...

Jeff McDonald

Manu to the line, chance to give the Spurs their first lead since that 20-2 Bucks run in the first quarter.

Dan McCarney

Leonard apparently blew a defensive cover there on Dudley's 3. Pop giving him an earful and then the patented stink eye.

Paul Garcia

10 points for Boris Diaw in 14 minutes, Kawhi's got 10 points too. Spurs are only down 1.

Dan McCarney

8-0 run for Los Spurs, back within 3.

Jeff McDonald

Leonard's first field goal since the first quarter: A baseline drive a dunk.

Jeff McDonald

Fair enough. RT @Ericb1980: those turnovers are courtesy of the bucks just slapping at every opportunity.

Paul Garcia

Duncan's now working with 16 points, 7 boards, 2 assists and 2 blocks in 16 minutes so far.

Jeff McDonald

If one hasn't noticed, Tim Duncan is playing a fine all-around game, save for five turnovers. If only he had help.

Jeff McDonald

Those pesky defending NBA champions won't go away. Close within 62-55 on Duncan's reverse layup, set up by Duncan's block of Brandon Knight.

Dan McCarney

Fantastic D on one end, Duncan converts reverse layup form Diaw on the other to bring Spurs within 7. Timeout Bucks.

Paul Garcia

Three Bucks starters are in double figures already: Middleton 14 points, Ilyasova 11, Pachulia 10. SA is 2/14 from three.

Dan McCarney

There was a Spurs possession: Nice ball movement moves Bucks side to side, Parker drops it off to Diaw inside. Far and few between, though.

Dan McCarney

2 for 13 on 3s, 13 assists to 10 turnovers.

Dan McCarney

Timeout Spurs early in 3rd quarter, trailing 59-49. Shooting 35.3 pct. Everyone not named Tim Duncan is a combined 12 for 42.

Mike Monroe

#Bucks up to 16 turnovers < 4 min into 3rd but #Spurs have only one basket in period; MIL 59, SAS 49, 8:12 left in 3rd

Dan McCarney

Somebody, please, explain to me the point of an NBA head coach requiring his rookies to push baby dolls around in a stroller?

Dan McCarney

BREAKING: Tony Parker scored a basket.

Jeff McDonald

Also the whole team is 17 of 49. RT @Dan McCarney: 4 for 31 if you include Bonner.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs' comeback bid starts 0-for-5 with a turnover to start the third quarter.

Dan McCarney

4 for 31 if you include Bonner.

Jeff McDonald

I can never tell. RT @jimfreeman1960 Is Jason Kidd really that good a coach?

Dan McCarney

3 for 26 if you include Green, as McDonald notes. Ouch.

Jeff McDonald

Nice of you to give Green a pass. RT @Dan McCarney: Parker, Ginobili, Leonard now 3 for 19 combined.

Dan McCarney

Parker, Ginobili, Leonard now 3 for 19 combined.

Jeff McDonald

Say this much, Bucks are moving the ball.

Jeff McDonald

Nope. RT @one_strike_away Was there ever any indication as to why Kawhi left the floor earlier?

Jeff McDonald

Pop and Kenyon Martin share a hug in between second and third quarters.

Jeff McDonald

Parker, Green, Leonard, Ginobili = 3 for 24 in the first half. Pretty much a recipe for offensive disaster.

Jeff McDonald

We should have expected Spurs to maybe struggle a bit on offense. Bucks defense is legit. Spurs' inability to guard Bucks is surprising.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs trail 55-47 at half. Were it not for 12 Bucks turnovers and a healthy FT edge, deficit would be worse.

Dan McCarney

To be fair, Duncan is playing fairly well: 14 on 6 for 8 with 7 rebs.

Jeff McDonald

It's understandable the Spurs are having trouble slowing the Bucks. I mean, they have the 23rd best offense in the whole NBA.

Dan McCarney

Spurs shooting 9 for 10 on FTs, only have 6 fouls. These are about the only positives I can find so far.

Jeff McDonald

The Big Three of Khris Middleton, Ersan Ilyasova and Zaza Pachulia is having its way with the Spurs.

Jeff McDonald

Kawhi Leonard hasn't made a shot since returning from the locker room, save for that last free throw that was short and then rolled in.

Dan McCarney

Zaza out here dunking on people. Bucks by 11 late in 2nd Q.

Jeff McDonald

Danny Green 0 for 6, Tony Parker 1 for 6, Kawhi Leonard 1 for 6, Manu Ginobili 1 for 4.

Dan McCarney

Pro RT @Mike Bresnahan Byron Scott thought tonight's game started an hour later.

Dan McCarney

Leonard: 4 pts, 2 rebs, 1 for 6 in 14 mins.

Dan McCarney

Spurs continue to play crap D. Bucks shooting 64.5 pct after Ilyasova steps into a wide-open 3 off inbound. Bucks by 11.

Jeff McDonald

The thing about giving up a 20-2 run in the first quarter is you kind of have to be on point the rest of the way to have a chance.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs are getting out-shot 62.1% to 38.7%. Down nine again.

Jeff McDonald

Danny Green leads the Spurs in minutes played by more than 100 this season. Wonder if that's catching up to him.

Jeff McDonald

Of course, with Green, then next made basket could swing him back to the Hot end of things.

Jeff McDonald

Danny Green has missed 16 of his last 23 shots. He's officially on the Icy end of the IcyHot spectrum.

Jeff McDonald

Whoa boy, part 2. RT @ESefko: Tyson Chandler just went down with an apparent leg injury. Play continued and he couldn't move.

Jeff McDonald

Recapping 1Q: Spurs shoot 36.8%, cough up six turnovers, surrender 20-2 run, and trail by three.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs gave up 20-2 run to #Bucks in 1st quarter yet trail only 24-21 after 9-0 run to close period

Jeff McDonald

Spurs give up 20-2 1Q run, then score final nine points. Trail *only* 24-21 after one. Mills had chance to tie with 3-pointer at the horn.

Dan McCarney

Mills misses wide-open 3 at buzzer off great ball movement, Spurs still back to within 3, 24-21, with strong run to close quarter.

Dan McCarney

9 straight for Spurs to climb back within 3

Jeff McDonald

Brandon Knights steps on baseline, ending streak of 8-straight scoring possessions for Milwaukee.

Jeff McDonald

It's like Kawhi Leonard leaving the bench for five minutes competely freaked everyone out. Spurs haven't been the same since.

Jeff McDonald

Turnovers. RT @Dan McCarney: Slow starts are one thing, but giving up 9 fast break points in 9 minutes is pretty much unacceptable.

Mike Monroe

#Bucks on 16-0 run and 20-2 over last 3:41 at ATT Center and now lead #Spurs 24-12

Dan McCarney

Slow starts are one thing, but giving up 9 fast break points in 9 minutes is pretty much unacceptable.

Jeff McDonald

Don't need to mention, at 7th place, Spurs can't afford to fall asleep at home against a .500ish team from the Eastern Conference.

Dan McCarney

Run is up to 20-2 now and the Bucks lead by 12.

Jeff McDonald

Obligatory "someone forgot to inform the Spurs this game started at 6" reference. That's an 18-2 run for Milwaukee.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili tried to challenge Giannis at the rim, and that was not a very good idea. Rejected.

Dan McCarney

11-2 run for Milwaukee, now lead Los Spurs 15-12. Middleton lighting it up with 9 on 4 for 5.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs have taken 12 shots, 8 by Duncan/Parker

Jeff McDonald

Had a whole lot of company, if that was the case. RT @Jeremy_Wilson21 Maybe he had to tinkle

Mike Monroe

Kawhi Leonard returns to bench ... #Spurs fans heave sigh of relief ... #Spurs players heave sighs of relief, too

Jeff McDonald

Leonard to the table. Checking back in.

Jeff McDonald

Leonard jogs out of tunnel. Back on the bench.

Jeff McDonald

Whoa boy. RT @Mike Monroe: Kawhi Leonard just left the court with #Spurs athletic trainer Will Sevening

Mike Monroe

Kawhi Leonard just left the court with #Spurs athletic trainer Will Sevening

Jeff McDonald

Kawhi opens guarding Giannis. Those two could give each other a bear hug from opposite ends of the floor.

Jeff McDonald

I know January starting five isn't always June starting five. I know that much. RT @Ericb1980 you never know with pop

Jeff McDonald

Bonner started some vs. OKC. RT @N1G_Enterprise @Ericb1980 wasn't Diaw the starter for west and NBA finals?
