The Milwaukee Bucks continue their dominance over the NBA after beating the San Antonio Spurs 127-118. Giannis Antetokounmpo had another stellar game, earning 32 points, 8 rebounds, and having a 58.3% field goal percentage. Brook Lopez had a whopping 7 blocks to go along with his 50% field goal percentage. Eric Bledsoe had a solid game as well, producing everywhere on the court, earning a stat in every category, except for blocks.
It wasn’t a good day for the San Antonio Spurs two days ago, losing to the Milwaukee Bucks 118-127. DeMar DeRozan was able to have an efficient day, earning 26 points with a 57.1% field goal percentage. LaMarcus Aldridge earned himself a double-double, with his 16 points and 10 rebounds. Trey Lyles was almost able to earn himself a double-double with 14 rebounds, but only earned 8 points.
The Milwaukee Bucks look unstoppable this season. They lead the league in points per game, rebounds per game, field goal percentage, and have a 12.8 PM. The next closest team to the buck in PM is the Celtics with a 7.7. The Bucks are also 2nd in blocks per game and 6th in assist per game. No team is better than the Bucks overall this year.
In nearly every category, the San Antonio Spurs should be one of the top 10 teams in the league. The Spurs are in the top 10 for points per game, field goal percentage, rebounds per game, turnovers per game (lowest number of turnovers), and blocks per game. So why are the Spurs floundering in the middle of the league? It’s because they just can’t win. The Spurs have a mediocre 10-9 home record and an abysmal 4-11 away record. Only the Golden State Warriors have a worse away record than the Spurs in the western conference.
Milwaukee are 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games.
Milwaukee are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against San Antonio.
Milwaukee are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games.
San Antonio are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games against an opponent in the Eastern conference.
The total has gone OVER in 8 of San Antonio’s last 11 games this season.
San Antonio are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games played on a Monday.
I’m going to keep this simple. The Bucks are the best team in the NBA, with the best player in the NBA. The San Antonio Spurs are not the best team in the NBA, without a real star on their team. The Bucks will win today.
