Bucks lack energy, blow out by Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs (17-4) roughed up the Milwaukee Bucks (5-17), 109-77 at the Bradley Center on Wednesday night.

The Bucks played one night earlier and pulled out a 78-74 win in Chicago.  On the second night, they lacked energy and didn’t compete at all against the Spurs.

Tim Duncan scored 12 of his 21 points in the first quarter as the Spurs jumped out to an 18-point lead.

John Henson, who had a big night in Chicago the night before, was held to 4 points and 8 rebounds against the Spurs.

Besides Duncan, five other Spurs scored in double figures, while not a single Bucks starter would score in double figures on the night.  The Bucks did get 18 points off the bench from rookie Nate Wolters.  Giannis Antetokounmpo had 15 points and 7 rebounds.
