WATCH: Michael Beasley burns the Spurs for 28 points

Giannis Antetokounmpo played just nine minutes, and finished without any points, missing all three of his shots, as he sat early due to illness.

Somehow, it didn’t matter.

Behind a superb bench effort from Michael Beasley, the Milwaukee Bucks managed to upset the San Antonio Spurs, 109-107.

The former second overall pick exploded for 28 points on an 11-of-18 shooting clip, to go with five rebounds, four assists, two steals, and three blocks. He scored 10 of his markers in the fourth quarter, and hit a pair of free throws that had Milwaukee up 105-101, 2:14 left.

The Spurs rallied back and took the lead for a short stretch, on triples from Davis Bertans and Danny Green, 107-105. However, rookie Malcolm Brogdon played hero for the Bucks, canning his version of a three and then clinching the win with a split at the foul line.

Manu Ginobili had a chance to win the game outright, but his attempt at a bank triple failed to connect.

The Bucks moved over .500 to 19-18, while the Spurs took a step back to 30-8.
