The latest San Antonio Spurs news, notes and roundup for Saturday, Nov. 11.

The San Antonio Spurs enter the second of a back-to-back on Saturday night, with a game against the Chicago Bulls. Friday’s contest was against the Milwaukee Bucks, which was a close game throughout, that the Silver and Black lost, 94-87.

This loss dropped the Spurs to 7-5, with plenty of action yet to come in Week 4. It’s along with the headlines that developed on Friday and continued into Saturday. Was there an important takeaway or development from this game?

What are the latest news, notes and headlines for Saturday, Nov. 11? Let’s take a look.

  • The Spurs had their moments against the Bucks, including finding some success from 3-point range. Turnover differential did them in, however, including racking up 16 through the first three quarters (finishing with 18). It led to their demise, along with nobody to combat Giannis Antetokounmpo’s freakish play, in the latest game recap.
  • After a red-hot start to the 2017-18 NBA season, Dejounte Murray has become an afterthought. He played just nine minutes in Friday’s game, with his role declining in the previous four games. We look at the questions surrounding his role.
  • Pounding the Rock looked at what we learned in Friday’s loss to Milwaukee. This included Manu Ginobili’s turn-back-the-clock performance, which saw him dunk and find other crafty ways to get to the basket.
  • The Chicago Tribune previewed Saturday’s Spurs vs. Bulls game. It’s the second time these teams have played each other this season, with the Silver and Black winning Game 1.
  • FanSided’s Pippen Ain’t Easy also previewed this game.
