What we learned from the Spurs loss to the Bucks
The San Antonio Spurs put forth a valiant effort against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night, keeping things close for most of the matchup before falling behind late and succumbing to the reigning champions in their first SEGABABA of the season.
The starters came strong out of the gates behind a searing performance from beyond the arc courtesy of San Antonio’s prized free-agent addition Doug McDermott. Unfortunately, the second unit struggled to keep pace as everyone outside Lonnie Walker IV battled shooting woes.
Although the Silver and Black have a losing record for the first time this season, the team has looked more cohesive on both ends of the court, a welcomed sight highlighted by elevated defensive activity, unselfish ball movement, and a lot less standing around.
