Bucks-Spurs: Milwaukee Puts the Squeeze on San Antonio

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IDecember 30, 2008

Now that, my friends, was a victory.

The Bucks stormed into San Antonio tonight and beat the 20-11 Spurs 100-98 to get to 15-17.

Tonight was really a testament to what kind of team the Bucks can be. They started off quickly, held off a few San Antonio runs and then showed enough moxie to not only come back from a four-point deficit late in the fourth quarter, but then hold off the Spurs for the win on the road.

This is the second win against the Spurs this season.

Box Score me. The Bucks out rebounded and outshot the Spurs, hitting 51.2 percent from the field. Both Bogut and Ridnour were the stars tonight. Bogut had a strong line of 20 points, 14 rebounds, four assists, and three blocks. Luke had 21 points, five rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and two big three-pointers. It's, close but he has to win TBC player of the game.

Michael Redd was no slouch either, scoring 25 points and grabbing a personal season-high of 10 rebounds.

For the most part of the game, the passing was crisp and this team really looks comfortable with each other right now. Ridnour has been playing great, and the two real areas of improvement have to be Jefferson being more of a slasher and getting to the line and maybe some improved play by Sessions and CV.

The Bucks have another big test tomorrow, as they take on the Rockets in Houston at 6:00 pm.
