The San Antonio Spurs snapped the Milwaukee Bucks five-game winning streak on Monday night in game two of a back-to-back against the Spurs.

It felt like the Bucks were trying to play catch-up from the start.  As a team, the Spurs gave the Bucks a taste of their own medicine from Saturday night by knocking down an absurd amount of three-pointers.  San Antonio shot 54% from beyond the arc, connecting on 19 three-pointers in 35 attempts. The Spurs also shot over 50% from the field as well.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was not able to shoot as well as he did on Saturday night.  Antetokounmpo was unable to connect from the three-point line on five attempts. That being said, he was still two assists shy of a triple-double by recording 24 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 assists.

Donte Divincenzo finished one-point shy of tying his career-high with 16 points off the bench.

George Hill continued to stay hot from beyond the arc.  Hill also finished with 15 points off the bench, shooting 3-4 from the three-point line.


The Bucks road trip continues as they head to San Francisco to play the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.  Tip-off is set for 9:00 p.m.
