Bucks rally late for win against the Spurs


The Bucks took control and rallied within the last five minutes of the game to beat the Spurs. With the star point guard Giannis Antetokounmpo slowed by illness, other players stepped up to the plate to secure the win.

Forward Michael Beasley had one of his best games this season, finishing with 28 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Milwaukee ended a nine-game losing streak to San Antonio and won at the AT&T Center for the first time since December 2008.

Malcolm Brogdon hit the go-ahead three-pointer from the corner with 1:08 remaining off a pinpoint pass from Beasley.

Brogdon sank 1 of 2 free-throw attempts with 7.1 seconds left, missing short on the second and giving the Spurs an opening. But Spurs veteran guard Manu Ginobili missed badly on a three-point shot at the buzzer, and the Bucks celebrated.

“It’s a great win,” Brogdon said. “Not many teams are able to accomplish this. But we’ve got to be able to use this as motivation to understand how we can play and how we can finish games in the last 5 minutes.”
