San Antonio had lost three of its last six games after starting the season 13-1, but dominated from the opening tip, scoring the first nine points. An 8-0 run extended the Spurs lead to 27-10.

The Bucks (5-17) trailed 32-16 after one quarter. The Spurs held a 17-4 rebounding advantage in the opening period, when the Bucks managed just one defensive rebound.

The Bucks pulled within 41-30 on two free throws by Miroslav Raduljica, but the Spurs responded with a 10-0 run to 51-30 with 4:18 left in the half. The Bucks went scoreless for 4:02 during the Spurs' surge, missing all five shot attempts and committing three turnovers.

The Spurs led 63-40 at the half and extended it to 92-54 entering the final period.

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.

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.

Milwaukee starters Khris Middleton, Ekpe Udoh, John Henson, O.J. Mayo and Brandon Knight combined for 19 points on 7-for-28 shooting. Forward Ersan Ilyasova, who logged a team-high 38 minutes, made just 3 of 16 shots.

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. . Spurs forward Tiago 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.
