What to Know

The San Antonio Spurs and the Milwaukee Bucks are even-steven against one another since December of 2015 (6-6), but not for long. San Antonio is getting right back to it as they host the Bucks at 8:30 p.m. ET Oct. 23 at AT&T Center. If the contest is anything like San Antonio's 146-125 victory from their previous meeting in May, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

San Antonio was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Friday as they fell 102-96 to the Denver Nuggets. Small forward Keldon Johnson put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 27 points.

Meanwhile, Milwaukee took a serious blow against the Miami Heat on Thursday, falling 137-95. Milwaukee was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 72-43. One thing holding the Bucks back was the mediocre play of small forward Jordan Nwora, who did not have his best game: he played for 26 minutes with 3-for-12 shooting.

The Spurs are expected to lose this next one by 6. They hadn't treated fans well this season, but they at least enjoy a 2-0 record against the spread.

With the two teams each stumbling in off of a loss, both will be hungry for the win. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
