"It happens to everybody," said Spurs coach Greg Popovich. "They just couldn't put it in the hole tonight. We got a big lead. We shot it very well in the first half and they had a tough time, and I thought our defense was really good."

Kawhi Leonard scored 13 points, Marco Belinelli added 11, and Danny Green and Cory Joseph had 10 apiece for the Spurs, who shot 52.3 percent, despite making only 4 of 17 3-point attempts. Jeff Ayers, subbing for injured center Tiago Splitter, did not score, but had 10 rebounds in 25 minutes.

"They're a pretty good basketball team," Drew said. "I don't think there's any other way to cut it. They're as good as any offensive executing team in our league. The pace with which they run the offense, the way they pass the ball — they'll go isolation with Tim some — but the way they move that basketball is absolutely phenomenal. From my point of few, they are as good as any offensive executing team in our league."

Rookie guard Nate Wolters led the Bucks with a season-high 18 points and 19-year-old Giannis Antetokounmpo, the league's youngest player, had 15 points. Milwaukee, which had won two of its last three, has yet to win consecutive games.

"They're pretty impressive," Wolters said. "Just a really unselfish team who makes the extra pass. It seemed like we really had no answer defensively. No matter what we did they were getting open looks. They're really good."

The 32-point loss was the most lopsided of the season for the Bucks, who had lost by 27 points to Indiana in the midst of an 11-game losing streak.

NOTES: Bucks guard Gary Neal, who spent the previous three seasons with the Spurs, was looking forward to playing against his former team, but was out of the lineup after receiving an injection Tuesday for plantar fasciitis in his left foot. ... Splitter did not make the two-game trip to Toronto and Milwaukee because of tightness in his left calf. ... Spurs center Aron Baynes, who had a season-high 14 points Tuesday night in a 116-103 victory at Toronto, did not play due to a sprained ankle.
