Talking Bucks-Spurs Preview

Bucks-Spurs Preview

The Milwaukee Bucks and San Antonio Spurs have been hit hard by injuries to some of their top players during the season's first month.

So far, the Bucks have done a better job of overcoming the situation.

Brandon Jennings looks to help lead Milwaukee to its eighth victory in nine games Monday night when it visits the Spurs, who will try to build on their first win in a week and a half.

With the two stars out, Jennings has been the main reason the team has won three in a row and seven of eight.

Jennings hasn't been the only Milwaukee player to step up in the wake of all the injuries.

While Milwaukee is overcoming its injury woes, San Antonio hasn't had the same success.

Tim Duncan (left ankle), Tony Parker (left ankle) and Manu Ginobili (left groin) have missed time for the Spurs (5-6), who had their first losing record at the 10-game mark since 1996-97.

Ginobili's injury is likely to keep him until later this week. Parker played for the second time in six games Saturday, scoring 17 points in a 106-84 victory over Washington that snapped a three-game losing streak.

It was San Antonio's first win since beating Dallas on Nov. 11, but Duncan said it felt like the team's first in a year and a half.

Duncan, who has played in four straight games after missing two, had 16 points and nine rebounds against the Wizards and hopes the win will spark a turnaround.

The Bucks swept the 2008-09 season series from the Spurs. Richard Jefferson, acquired by San Antonio in the offseason, averaged 13.5 points and 9.0 rebounds in the two games for Milwaukee.
