Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo returns to San Antonio on Friday night, riding a wave of early season MVP hype fueled by phenomenal play. The Greek Freak has taken a leap in his fifth NBA campaign, putting up stellar numbers for a Milwaukee team intent on staking its claim in an underwhelming Eastern Conference. After a solid start, the Spurs offense has shown signs of sputtering on the road, with turnovers and injuries to key personnel ultimately taking their toll. It will take a team effort from San Antonio to slow down Antetokounmpo, and a healthy Kawhi Leonard would be a good start. Consistent contributions from Dejounte Murray and Patty Mills at the point could help right the ship for the Spurs until NBA Finals MVP Tony Parker is cleared to return.
