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
And with Pat Connaughton moved up for the #Bucks, Jordan Nwora is going to have another chance to answer all the questions about his game again and earn a rotation spot.… via @journalsentinel8:27 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Spurs: Murray, White, Johnson, McDermott, Poeltl
Bucks: Holiday, Allen, Middleton, Giannis, Connaughton – 8:26 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
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
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
“I’m excited to have that in my possession and hold it. It’s an accomplishment you dream of your whole life.”
Checking in with NBA champion Bryn Forbes, who reunites with his ex Bucks teammates tonight, and will get his ring next week.… via @expressnews – 8:04 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Hard to believe, but former Spur George Hill, who Pop called “one of his favorite people” is in his 14th season at age 35.…7:57 PM
Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Jeremy Lamb had two 3s total in the first two games. Has four tonight, including three in 63 seconds.
Heat handled the Bucks in their opener by 42, held to 24pts in the 1st. And Pacers have opened up a 7-point edge. – 7:45 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
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
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
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
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Slo-mo Khris Middleton before the Bucks get underway in San Antonio. PM

Alex Kennedy @AlexKennedyNBA
Jordan Burns has been assigned to the San Antonio Spurs’ G League affiliate, the Austin Spurs, per his agent Daniel Green of @GreenSportsMgmt.
Jordan signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Spurs this offseason. – 6:29 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Bucks are without Donte DiVincenzo (ankle), Brook Lopez (back), Semi Ojeleye (calf) and Bobby Portis Jr. (hamstring). – 6:16 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Milwaukee #Bucks guard Jordan Nwora is out to answer all the questions about his game again.
“I’d been there before, I can make another big jump my next year, so it was good. It’s just patience. Everything comes.” – @JordanNwora… via @journalsentinel6:09 PM

Some early defensive numbers for the Spurs players through 2 games: PM

Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
According to PBP Stats, the Nuggets have allowed the fourth lowest shot quality (~51 eFG%) to opponents so far.
1. Detroit
2. Milwaukee
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
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Cacok (not with team) and Collins (ankle) are the only players on Spurs injury report for tonight vs. Bucks. – 3:14 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Jrue Holiday and Rodney Hood are probable for the #Bucks tonight as they take on the San Antonio #Spurs
The big men are still out, however. – 2:31 PM
