Spurs go for 20 against Bucks

San Antonio (19-5) at Milwaukee (13-9) 8:00 pm EST

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) - At a minimum, the San Antonio Spurs can become the first Western Conference team to reach the 20-win plateau when they visit the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.

The defending NBA champions own the best record in the West and are tied with Detroit for the league lead in wins, although the Pistons have done it in two fewer games. Detroit also can reach 20 wins when it hosts lowly Portland earlier Tuesday.

San Antonio failed on its first attempt at 20 wins Sunday when New Orleans handed the Spurs an 89-76 loss. Michael Finley and Tony Parker scored 17 points apiece but also combined to commit seven of the team's season-high 23 turnovers.

Tim Duncan was limited to 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting as San Antonio fell to 0-4 in the second of back-to-back games.

The Bucks had won four of their previous five games before Saturday's 88-80 home loss to Utah. Michael Redd scored 19 points and Jamaal Magloire collected 14 and 16 rebounds - one shy of his season high.

Top overall pick Andrew Bogut was limited to just two points on 1-of-3 shooting in 22 minutes.

San Antonio has won five of the six meetings against Milwaukee, including both contests last season.
