Last season the San Antonio Spurs won 50 games in the shortened season, tying the Chicago Bulls for the best record in the NBA. They also broke the record for the longest winning streak extending into the playoffs. Can "The Big 3" — Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili — make a late push this year despite the fact that the NBA has cracked down on Coach Popovich's habit of resting his guys whenever he pleases? The good news for the spurs: Tony Parker is posting the best numbers of his career, Tim Duncan looks better than he has in years, and the team has the best record in the NBA heading out of the All-Star break. Things are looking bright for the Spurs as the postseason approaches
Despite San Antonio's success, Spurs tickets are seventh cheapest in the NBA, averaging just $61 to see a game at AT&T Center. In fact, every Spurs game has had tickets less than $20 available. The Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, and
Oklahoma City Thunder are the three most expensive road teams in the League (in that order). When these high-profile teams play the Spurs in San Antonio, tickets for the games average $157, $152, and $107 respectively. That's much lower than Miami’s, Los Angeles’, and OKC's average away ticket prices of $237, $232, and $178.
The remainder of the Spurs schedule is not easy but they do finish the regular season against three of four teams currently with losing records. In the tougher of two Conferences, the San Antonio Spurs are in pursuit of their fifth NBA Championship.
