MILWAUKEE -- The way the San Antonio Spurs are currently playing, it's going to take a perfect performance from an opponent to beat them.
Flying under the radar as they so often do, the Spurs put on a clinic Wednesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, leading for all but 40 seconds in a 117-110 win over the Bucks.
It was San Antonio's league-leading seventh victory in a row. And while teams like the Thunder, Heat and Clippers get all the headlines, the Spurs' 26-8 record is among the NBA's best.
If the Spurs played their game, the Bucks (16-14) were going to be in trouble. And they did. Milwaukee's defense thrives on forcing turnovers and it didn't in the first half, allowing the Spurs to build a 69-52 halftime lead.
Milwaukee's opponents average 22.5 assists per game and San Antonio had 19 assists and just two turnovers at halftime. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich doesn't want good shots, he wants great ones, and his team obliged.
