The San Antonio Spurs (14-4) welcome the Milwaukee Bucks (7-11) to town tonight as they look to get back on the winning track after losing to the Chicago Bulls (10-5) 92-89. The Spurs, who were leading after three quarters 73-70, allowed the Bull to pull off an 11-2 stretch and were steadied by Pau Gasol’s 18 points and 13 boards.
“We are not good offensively, and may not be until March,” coach Gregg Popovich said. “Offense will take a while. We have a lot of guys getting used to each other, and how to play together.”
The Bucks have been struggling offensively even as they ended a three game losing skid against the Denver Nuggets Monday night with a 92-74 blowout. Tonight they face a Spurs team that is as good defensively as they ever and still rank first in overall efficiency, sixth in opponent three point percentage and third in opponent field goal percentage.
