The Milwaukee Bucks will look to get back to winning ways in the 2021-22 NBA when they take on the San Antonio Spurs in an enticing game at the AT&T Center on Saturday.

The Bucks are coming off a 95-137 blowout loss to the Miami Heat. They were without several key players like Brook Lopez and Jrue Holiday. The defending champs struggled in the paint, and were inefficient with their shooting throughout the night. They converted only 38.1% of their attempts from the floor.

Meanwhile, the Spurs failed to continue their winning start to the season, losing to the Denver Nuggets 96-102 in their previous outing. In a closely contested game, Nikola Jokic and co held on to a marginal lead to secure the win over Greg Popovich's young team.

Showed great fight tonight! Back home tomorrow against the defending champs.@FrostBank | #GoSpursGo | #PorVida https://t.co/A4qbnkCV3r
