Two Michael Redd free throws stood between the Bucks and a tie game with the Spurs, but after missing the first one, Redd had to aim wide on the second and hope his teammates could tip the ball in. But Andrew Bogut's attempt failed, and San Antonio left town with a 96-94 win, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. In another NBA matchup:
The Clippers suffered their worst loss all season, as a tired and depleted team fell 103-73 to Detroit. The Pistons wielded their power without Chauncey Billups, rallying behind Tayshaun Prince's 22 points and 10 assists. Corey Maggette also put out 22 points, but went only 5-for-15 from the field, matching LA's 35% shooting night.
