Somewhere in his halftime remarks Friday, Gregg Popovich is certain he mentioned it.
A few of his players swear they listened it.
Among a keys to violence a prolonged and rangy, Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Milwaukee group was this: Try not to chuck a round directly to a man wearing a Bucks jersey.
So when a Spurs began a second half of what became a 94-87 detriment during a ATT Center by gagging adult 3 uninterrupted turnovers?
“Very disappointing,” pronounced a really unhappy Manu Ginobili afterward.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a basketball manager to interpret a Spurs’ troubles in their second home detriment of a deteriorate Friday.
They committed 18 turnovers opposite a group that can renovate them into dunks in a camber of dual dribbles.
The Spurs were mostly excellent so prolonged as they forced a Bucks to govern halfcourt offense. When they fed Milwaukee’s quick break, well, Antetokounmpo finished with 28 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 blocks while putting on a personal slam-dunk show.
“We can’t spin a round over a approach we’re constituted right now,” Popovich said. “Every time we have a high turnover game, we are going to have problems.”
The detriment snapped a three-game winning strain for a Spurs, and a four-game losing movement for Milwaukee.
It forsaken a Spurs to 7-5 during their Kawhi Leonard-less start to a season, with waste entrance opposite fortifying champion Golden State and 4 teams from a Eastern Conference.
“We incited it over too many times,” Spurs core Pau Gasol said. “They capitalized. That’s where they’re many dangerous, forcing those turnovers and removing on a mangle and afterwards Giannis being means to finish over anyone.”
The Spurs saw all this one film. The Bucks are led by a “Greek Freak” of earthy proportions roughly biologically impossible.
Truth be told, Milwaukee is a group populated by freaks, a underbrush of arms and legs that make certain passes impossible.
