The Spurs take on the Bucks on Saturday, with both teams coming into the game on a roll. Milwaukee has won five games in a row, while the Spurs have won three straight, including a huge comeback effort to beat the Bulls on Wednesday.
Milwaukee has been dominating, with Giannis Antetokounmpo making a grand reappearance into the NBA MVP race. Giannis has scored 30-plus points in seven out of the last 10 games, and that includes a 36-point performance in a win over the Los Angeles Clippers.
This is the first time these two teams will face off this season and they do so at a time where their defenses’ are operating at peak efficiency. Per NBA Advanced Stats, both teams have Defensive Ratings within the top-seven in the league since March 4, 2021.
In a matchup of disciplined defenses, our PRO Report suggests Gregg Popovich’s Spurs will hold their own on Saturday, slowing down Giannis and Co. enough to keep things relatively close. Let’s take a look.
