Jrue Holiday said bit.ly/JordanNwora is his favorite player on the #Bucks
“He’s going to be really good in this league & really good for our team. I like the way he plays…
“And then I’m liking him even more because of the defensive plays that he’s making. ” – 12:35 AM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Grayson Allen was very good for the Memphis Grizzlies and deserved his extension.
The Grizzlies are better off now and in the future with Grayson Allen gone to Milwaukee.
Desmond Bane and De’Anthony Melton raise the floor and ceiling of Memphis.
All three statements are true. – 11:38 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“We’ve got to make shots. I feel like we had good looks, but we just didn’t make them.” – Derrick White on the team struggling from three aside from McDermott tonight.
SA 3PT accuracy in 1st 3 games:
vs ORL: 43%
@ DEN: 25%
vs MIL: 26% – 11:34 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
It took the Spurs 3 mins, 45 seconds to go from down 13 to leading by 1 in the 3Q.
Derrick White said with the aggressive defense the team has, they’re able to climb back into games. – 11:28 PM

“Small mistakes in both games that have cost us,” said Derrick White of the Spurs their last two games, where San Antonio was close with 5 mins left on the clock. – 11:24 PM

Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Pop pointed out that it wasn’t just the level of competition that made this B2B difficult. It’s something Bud just pointed out as well, saying the Spurs had to switch time zones.
“That’s not an excuse,” Pop said. “But it makes it a little more difficult for a young group.” – 11:15 PM

More from Pop on being thrilled with his team’s effort:
“I liked everybody’s work out there. (The Bucks) are a hell of a team and I thought we couldn’t have played much better. We could have made fewer mistakes, but we are made up of human beings also.” – 11:06 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Pretty good defense from San Antonio in the paint.
Bucks and Spurs were on fire from mid-range.
SA struggled again from three.

Bucks are now 2-1 on the season. – 10:50 PM
Kane Pitman @KanePitman
Pat Connaughton hit some huge shots last season in both the regular season and postseason. He’s hit two big triples here in the fourth. He’s really transformed into a guy they will look to get an open look in right situations. – 10:44 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
After the #Bucks “Big Three” scored 20 straight in the fourth, George Hill and Pat Connaughton hit some timely threes to keep them in front. – 10:43 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Two massive Pat Connaughton 3s in the last few minutes. Might end up sealing this game. – 10:42 PM

McDermott is 7/11 from three.

Spurs are fun man. Just a delightful low-stakes league pass team. – 10:38 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
That’s a rough break for the Bucks. Middleton slipped on a wet spot as he backpedaled down the floor.
Compromised the Bucks’ defense and the Spurs got Doug McDermott an open 3. Bucks up, 109-103, with 4:40 left. – 10:37 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Doug McDermott with a 23 point night. 21 of McDermott’s 23 points have been scored from three.
SA still battling with the defending champs, it’s a 2 possession game with less than 5 mins left – 10:37 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Doug McDermott has been a professional shooter for a loooonnnng time.
This is the first time he’s ever made as many as 7 3-pointers in a game. – 10:37 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Khris Middleton was reallly slow in getting up off the court, pointing to a wet spot on the floor. He’s walking slowly to the #Bucks bench. – 10:36 PM
Mike Finger @mikefinger
Less and less crazy to think Keldon Johnson is going to average 20 a night for a whole season. – 10:35 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Keldon Johnson has scored at least 20 points in 2/3 games to start the season. – 10:35 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Middleton and Holiday are in charge here with Antetokounmpo on the bench. Had a strong stretch of playmaking, but turnovers on back-to-back possessions from Holiday have let the Spurs get closer.
Bucks up, 103-96, with 6:57 left. Spurs ball. – 10:32 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
16 points now for Keldon Johnson, with 12 points in the paint after that last layup on the break.
Bucks by 7 – 10:30 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Spurs are playing hard, but the margin of error is just so small for them. Middleton 4-point play hurt. Now a clear path foul. – 10:27 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Derrick White is the 4th Spurs player in double figures.
He’s got 11 points, with 8 coming from attacking the paint. – 10:24 PM

The Spurs just ran a set to iso Devin against Middleton. Devin drove and finished with the fading basket – 10:22 PM

After three quarters, the Bucks lead, 85-81.
Bucks have five players (Antetokounmpo, Allen, Hill, Holiday, Middleton) in double figures. Middleton leads the way with 17 points and Antetokounmpo has 14p/5r/5a. – 10:18 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Spurs still down only 85-81, after trailing by as many as 13 in the 3Q. They’ll have their chances in the fourth. – 10:17 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Bucks lead the #Spurs 85-81 after three quarters. – 10:17 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
17 points for Lonnie, with 8 in the paint off that last drive vs the Bucks defense – 10:16 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
That Giannis Antetokounmpo gravity is so real.
Re-enters the game after sitting much of the third quarter with foul trouble and immediately creates a number of open shots. Nwora got loose for a couple, Hill for a 3. – 10:12 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Former Spur George Hill with 11 points off the bench.
MIL pushes their lead back to 6 – 10:12 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
After a 20-4 #Spurs run gave them a 77-74 lead, a pair of Jordan Nwora floaters sparked a quick 9-0 #Bucks spurt to reclaim the lead. – 10:12 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Giannis could dominate the 4Q, but to this point, Jakob Poeltl has done a pretty good job making things difficult for him. – 10:10 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Points off turnovers continues to be a huge positive stat for the Spurs. They’ve scored at least 20 for the third straight game, and we haven’t reached the fourth quarter yet. – 10:10 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
After a lengthy break, Giannis Antetokounmpo is back for the #Bucks10:09 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
After trailing by 13, the Spurs have regained the lead – 10:07 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Bucks took a 70-57 lead with 8:45 left in the third quarter.
After a 13-2 run by the Spurs, the Bucks’ lead is down to 72-70 with 5:28 left. Three turnovers during that stretch from the Bucks, just not taking care of the basketball. – 10:05 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
15 points for Lonnie Walker IV to lead the Spurs in scoring.
He’s been more aggressive tonight continue to attack the Bucks defense, rather than getting most of his points from three – 10:04 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Bucks call for time as their 11-point lead is now down to two. Khris Middleton’s fifth turnover was Milwaukee’s 16th as a team – and it lead to San Antonio’s 20th point off the miscues. – 10:04 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
From down 13, Spurs rattle off an 11-2 run to pull within a bucket. They really do keep coming, don’t they? – 10:04 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs have quickly made this a 4 point game after trailing by 13 earlier.
SA with multiple stops on defense – 10:03 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Bucks are making sure they get Grayson Allen a ton of looks from deep early in the season, but he’s only made seven of his 24 attempts from 3-point range thus far this season. – 10:01 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
McDermott now with 12 of the team 15 points from the 3PT line
SA down by 8 – 10:00 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
10 points for Keldon Johnson, all from inside the paint. – 9:59 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Down by 13, the Spurs are facing their largest deficit of the early season. – 9:59 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Pat Connaughton and Grayson Allen got the #Bucks started to open the second half, and they’ve rushed out to a 11-point lead now – the largest for either team to this point. – 9:58 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs have trailed by double digits in 2/3 games this season. – 9:55 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Giannis Antetokounmpo was called for his fourth foul there…he heads to the bench at the 9:51 mark of the the third quarter. – 9:54 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Not the greatest of starts to the third quarter for the Spurs, but Giannis just picked up his fourth foul 88 seconds in. – 9:53 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Heat had scored 100+ pts in 19 straight games, longest streak in franchise history. That ended tonight.
Pacers controlled OT 16-5 to capture their first win of the season and Rick Carlisle Part II Era, 102-91. Brissett had 18/9 off the bench.
Up next: vs Bucks on Monday. – 9:47 PM

Spurs trail Bucks 56-52 at half. Just like last night in Denver, they are playing well enough against a marquee opponent. We’ll see if the outcome is different in the second half. – 9:36 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Half: Bucks lead by 4
Better defense by SA, with MIL scoring 24 in the 2Q. But SA had trouble scoring themselves, with just 20 pts
Lonnie 13 pts | Giannis 12 pts
McDermott 11 pts | Middleton 10 pts
SA +6 in paint
MIL +9 from three – 9:36 PM

#Bucks lead 56-52 over the #Spurs heading into halftime. – 9:35 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Lonnie Walker IV just grabbed Giannis Antetokounmpo’s arm as he went in for a dunk and managed to pull him down.
Being reviewed for a flagrant foul. Tough to argue that was a basketball play, so it is called a Flagrant One on review. – 9:32 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
13 points for Lonnie Walker IV now.
He’s scored from every area of the floor:
Paint: 6 pts
Mid-Range: 2 pts
3PT: 3 pts
FT line: 2 pts – 9:31 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
After another hard foul on Giannis Antetokounmpo, the refs confer and decide Lonnie Walker IV’s contact is being reviewed as a possible flagrant. #Bucks lead 55-50. – 9:31 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Really nice series of plays for Jordan Nwora here in the second quarter.
Got a block on defense, made the extra pass for a Hill 3 and then got his feet set on the left wing for a 3 from Antetokounmpo.
Those are solid rotation minutes. – 9:29 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been whistled for three offensive fouls in the first half. #Bucks9:29 PM
Kane Pitman @KanePitman
Probably the big positive of the last two games has been George Hill looking spry on both ends. He’s been solid. – 9:28 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Giannis Antetokounmpo’s spin move into hitting the brakes and letting the defender fly by him is a dang cheat code. – 9:26 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
At the 4:09 mark of the second quarter, Giannis Antetokounmpo heads to the free throw line for the first time. #Bucks trail 48-44. – 9:25 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
11 points for Lonnie Walker IV, with 6 of his points in the paint.
Lonnie just finished a layup driving toward Giannis – 9:21 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
At the 5:50 mark of the second quarter, all five #Bucks starters are together again. – 9:19 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Offensive foul Jrue Holiday.
Derrick White strikes again. – 9:18 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
A pair of Thanasis Antetokounmpo offensive rebounds –> Pat Connaughton three –> Khris Middleton three-point play, and the #Bucks lead for the first time 41-38. – 9:12 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
After a torrid preseason, Bryn Forbes is struggling to find his range. He hasn’t scored a point in a game that counts since Game 3 of the NBA Finals. – 9:10 PM
Kane Pitman @KanePitman
Bryn Forbes wanted to help Giannis up but then it was like he realised he’s an opponent now 😂😩 – 9:10 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
For the second straight game, a former teammate sends Giannis Antetokounmpo down hard around the basket. But Bryn Forbes does help him up. – 9:09 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
It is Sandro Mamukelashvili’s turn for some minutes with the #Bucks starters. – 9:08 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Another #Spurs great is in the house in Tony Parker. He was in Milwaukee for #Bucks ring night. – 9:06 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Spurs went 4-for-9 from behind the three-point line and scored 14 points in the paint.
#Bucks went 2-for-6 from distance and turned it over 6 times, leading to 8 Spurs points. – 9:05 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Tied game after the 1Q, with both teams scoring 32 points each.
McDermott 11 pts | Giannis 8 pts
Lonnie 9 pts | Middleton 7 pts
Jakob 6 pts | Holiday 5 pts
Spurs +6 from three – 9:05 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Giannis Antetokounmpo with a pull-up J and now a Dirk fader on Poeltl in the last few minutes. Looks like he is finding his rhythm a little bit tonight now. He has 8 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists thus far.
Bucks and Spurs tied at 32 after one quarter. – 9:04 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
The #Bucks never led in the first quarter, but they end the first quarter tied with the #Spurs at 32. – 9:04 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Spurs and Bucks went a long way to a 32-all tie after 1Q. Those who paid for the Doug McDermott (11 points) vs. Giannis (8 points) duel are getting their money’s worth so far. – 9:04 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs have allowed their 1st 30 point quarter of the season to an opponent – 9:02 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Again, it’s early but that felt like a significant momentum swing. Jones swatted on a layup attempt that would have put Spurs up eight, MIL counters with a Robinson jumper, then Bryn Forbes airballs a wide-open 3. – 8:59 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Spurs legend David Robinson is in the house. He looks like he can still play. – 8:59 PM
Kane Pitman @KanePitman
Jordan Nwora hustling for a massive chase down block?!? I’m pretty sure that’s the type of play that Bud and the coaching staff will be absolutely loving. – 8:58 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Whoa. Big block by Jordan Nwora.
That’s an effort play. Big one for him to make too. – 8:56 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
To answer a question from the preseason: Pop doesn’t think it is mandatory to stagger Murray and White’s minutes. We’re seeing Tre Jones on the floor without them for the second night in a row. – 8:55 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Early mins for Tre Jones with the Spurs on the 2nd night of a B2B – 8:54 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Bucks are just too small defensively when Thanasis Antetokounmpo is serving as the nominal center.
Spurs guards are getting downhill and not at all deterred when they see Antetokounmpo at the rim. – 8:53 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Khris Middleton has now passed Hall of Famer Ray Allen for No. 10 on the #Bucks all-time scoring list. – 8:52 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
NBA champion Bryn Forbes checks in for the #Spurs as he faces his former team for the first time this season. – 8:51 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
It’s still early, but Thanasis is leading the Antetokounmpos in dunks so far. – 8:51 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Thanasis Antetokounmpo is the “big” off the bench to give Giannis Antetokounmpo a breather. #Bucks8:50 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Khris Middleton is 2 for 2, but also has three turnovers in the opening four and a half minutes of this one. Yet, #Bucks trail just 15-12. – 8:47 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Spurs lead early 15-12. Built a 7 point, but that didn’t hold long.
McDermott with three made 3s already in the 1Q – 8:46 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
A couple of #Bucks turnovers and some threes by McDermott have the #Spurs up 15-9 early. – 8:45 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Keldon Johnson got a little bit of space on the break and tried Giannis Antetokounmpo.
That was a mistake. Big block by the Greek Freak. – 8:44 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Keldon Johnson just tried to dunk on Giannis.
Give the kid credit for being ambitious. – 8:43 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

Spurs: Murray, White, Johnson, McDermott, Poeltl
Bucks: Holiday, Allen, Middleton, Giannis, Connaughton – 8:26 PM

With Brook Lopez missing his second straight game, the #Bucks once again turn to Pat Connaughton as the fifth starter along with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday and Grayson Allen. – 8:21 PM

Jeremy Lamb had two 3s total in the first two games. Has four tonight, including three in 63 seconds.

Pop reiterated that without a “lot of go-to type guys” they can give the ball to and say, ‘Score,’ the young Spurs “have to do all the little things well for more of 48 minutes than their opponents.” – 7:30 PM

Pop on where Keita Bates-Diop is in year 2 with Spurs:
“Just a continued quest to get confident and get more demonstrative in his game. Those are the things he needs more than anything. It’s not about skills or anything like that.” – 7:22 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
In addition to Bud & Team USAers Holiday & Middleton, Bucks also have former Spur & 13-year vet George Hill
“It’s always neat to see George,” Pop said. “I was at his wedding. He’s always been one of my favorite people. It’s great to see he’s still playing and contributing.” – 7:09 PM

According to PBP Stats, the Nuggets have allowed the fourth lowest shot quality (~51 eFG%) to opponents so far.
1. Detroit

3. Indiana
4. Denver
5. Washington
6. Utah
A good start to the season defensively. – 3:52 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
This was noticeable yesterday, but the Spurs have gone to Keldon twice in the post now (team leader) in the halfcourt.
Poeltl is the only other player on the roster with one post-up on the roster so far through 2 games. – 3:43 PM

Cacok (not with team) and Collins (ankle) are the only players on Spurs injury report for tonight vs. Bucks. – 3:14 PM
