The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as Brook Lopez‘s superhero dreams almost came true against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we catch up with the details of the Bucks’ encounter with a bat in San Antonio on Sunday, hear about the team’s travel woes ahead of that loss against the Spurs, and much more.

Brook Lopez outlined how he’d deal with a meeting with a bat in an interview in February, yet Sunday’s encounter could only have left him disappointed as the bat seemed more intent on sending Eric Bledsoe running scared than flying in Lopez’s direction.
