Found December 05, 2012 on Losers Bracket:
The Milwaukee Bucks lost to the San Antonio Spurs by a final score of 110-99. The game was tied going into the 4th, but then Sanders Show got called for a goaltend early in the 4th, Skiles got himself T’d up arguing the call, and the Spurs (reserves) pulled away. The game was literally over within two minutes of that call. I think the only commentary McGlocklin offered in the 4th quarter was “Wow, really?” and “Ok, now you gotta get stops”. They didn’t. The Bucks fall to 8-9 and are now third in the division. Positives: Illyasova looked great. His shot and his entire game finally appeared to have some rhythm. He finished with 17 points on 7/12 shooting. Dalembert seemed to have more energy off the bench. Or maybe it was just because he has hardly played the last several games. Negatives: The Bucks gave up a ton of offensive rebounds. The Spurs were shooting like ****, but when you give em 2-3 chances, eventually they will score. Monta Ellis couldn’t seem to hit an ...

Young Spurs To Get Minutes In Austin

With a full roster when the team is healthy, the San Antonio Spurs can't promise players on the bench huge minutes on a nightly basis. With main rotational players taking up most of the 48 minutes in an NBA game, rust and players not developing would be a huge problem if they'd be needed to step up during a major injury. With some faces expected to be returning soon...

Bucks fail to take advantage of start vs. Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs certainly know when it is go-time. The best fourth quarter team in the NBA did it again Wednesday night, with the Bucks becoming their latest victim.

The Spurs, though, won't get a break in the schedule Friday night when they host the Houston Rockets, losers of five straight on the road. San Antonio's reserves nearly...

Bucks-Spurs Preview

Resting key players last week led to a hefty fine for the San Antonio Spurs. This time, they're not likely to draw that kind of attention from the commissioner.

Coach Gregg Popovich and the Spurs (14-4) drew...
