This game went how you expected it to go. The Spurs were down Splitter, Green, Bonner, and Parker, but they were playing the horrible Milwaukee Bucks. The Spurs could have sat Duncan and Ginobili as well and won this game.
If you were expecting a good game, well, you should have tuned into the NFC Championship game, because this Spurs Bucks game was a sleeper. The Spurs destroyed the Bucks in every statistical category on their way to a 28 point victory.

Malcolm Thomas got his first run of the season. He was a monster on the boards, grabbing NINE in his 15 minutes , as well as getting two blocks and even scoring two points.
Gary Neal shot 1-8 from the field and was -18 for the game, which was one better than the very interesting player with the very hard to spell name, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who finished -19.
Spurs roll and are back on top of the West!
