SAN ANTONIO – Chris Middleton scored 28 points, Giannis Antetokounmpo 21 and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the San Antonio Spurs 121-111 on Saturday night.

Doug McDermott scored 25 points and Keldon Johnson added 20 points for San Antonio, which they lost for the second time in a row after their opening win of the season at home over Orlando.

The Bucks defended several runs by the Spurs to secure their second double-digit win. Each Milwaukee starter scored in double digits, and George Hill added 15 points off the bench.

Hill and Jordan Navora gave the Bucks a needed lift off the bench, while Jure Holiday and Grayson Allen sat. Navora finished in 21 minutes with seven points, six rebounds, two blocks and one assist.

Milwaukee shot 53% from the field and 43% from 3-point range.

San Antonio struggled from long distance for the second game in a row, going 10 for 39.

The Bucks went 11-2 after Devin Wassell’s 11-foot jumper pulled the Spurs to 91-90 in 2 minutes in the final quarter. San Antonio made a turnover and was charged with a clear path foul during the run.

McDermott hit consecutive 3-pointers in the opening quarter, and repeated the feat in the final period. He finished 7-for-11 on 3s.
