Bucks lose to San Antonio in a matchup that featured the Bucks head coach playing against the organization he worked and assistant coached in for 19 years. Mike Budenholzer comes from the Gregg Popovich tree and if you didn’t know then I’m sure you suddenly understand him better now. So tonights game was teacher vs student and the teacher got the best of the duo this time around.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 27 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out 6 assists. Malcom Brogdon on the other end had a terrible game shooting 2-10 from the field, scoring 5 points. The Bucks were -27 with Brogdon in the game verses the +13 they were with Brook Lopez in the game who scored 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Pat Connaughton had maybe his best offensive game of the season tonight scoring 14 points on 5-5 shooting from the field including 4-4 from 3 point range.
The loss brings the Toronto Raptors to within 2 games of the Milwaukee Bucks who still lead the Eastern Conference and have the best record in the NBA.
