The rich get richer, and that’s never been truer than it is for the San Antonio Spurs. Hailing as one of the NBA’s most respected and successful franchises for over 30 years, the Spurs always seem to find a way to keep winning. When “The Admiral” David Robinson reached the twilight of his career, San Antonio scored a rookie by the name of Tim Duncan. With the end now in sight for No. 21, the Spurs have once again injected fresh new blood in the form of LaMarcus Aldridge. Along with emerging star Kawhi Leonard—and still backed by veterans Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili—the Spurs dynasty is positioned for another run at the Larry O’Brien Trophy in 2015-16.

San Antonio Spurs 2015-2016 News and Updates
8/14/15 - Although they did not achieve another championship to add to their collection, the San Antonio Spurs still played a great season in 2014-2015. They finished third in the tough Southwest Division with a decent 55-27 record. There seems to be no end in sight for the ageless dynasty that is Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Coach Gregg Popovich. They’ll be at it again in just ten short weeks according to the NBA, which just released the official schedule for the 2015-2016 season this week. The Spurs will have a tough matchup right away, playing their first game of the new season on the road against rivals the Oklahoma City Thunder. Catch the Spurs at their home opener on Friday, October 30 against the Brooklyn Nets.
4/29/15 - The San Antonio Spurs have had a wild run in the playoffs so far, but it is looking like they are going to make it to the second round. Strangely, the Spurs have managed to win two of their three away games, but only one of their two home games against the Los Angeles Clippers. These three wins means they are only one more victory away from securing a place in the conference semifinals, while the Clippers would need to win all three remaining games to make a comeback. It is impressive that the Spurs are doing so well, especially because they did not have the home-court advantage. If they will have any chance against the upper-level teams going forward, however, the Spurs will need to up their game.
4/24/15 - The San Antonio Spurs and their opponents, the Los Angeles Clippers, both entered the playoffs at the top of their game. Only one team is going to be able to make it to the second round, and it is looking like it might be a close race. The first match went to the Clippers, but the Spurs are determined to make a comeback. After the game on April 22nd, the two teams will be travelling to San Antonio’s home court to continue the first round. That might be the Spur’s best chance to snag a couple easy victories. The winner who will proceed to the conference semifinals will be determined by whichever team is able to reach four victories first. Tickets for the Spur’s homecoming start at $67.
4/17/15 - The San Antonio Spurs lost for the first time in 11 games on April 15th, right before the regular season ended. While it is disappointing to see their winning streak end so close to the end of the season, they are still going into the playoffs in a really strong position. They were tied with the Memphis Grizzlies for wins, but the Grizzlies had more victories in the southwest division, so they were ranked higher. This means the Spurs hold the number six seed and will be taking on the Los Angeles Clippers, in the number three position, first. Both teams have won the significant majority of their recent games, so it will certainly be a very exciting game. Be sure to catch it on April 19th.
4/8/15 - The San Antonio Spurs strong second half of the season continues. They are currently in a seven game winning streak and have only lost three of their last 20 games. They most recently beat the Warriors 107-92 on Easter Sunday. During the game, Kawhi Leonard scored 26 points to equal his career high, and he had another career high during the game: seven steals. Tim Duncan scored 19 points and Danny Green added 18 points for the team. C Tiago Splitter is out for a few games to heal a calf injury. The Spurs will look to continue their winning streak as they head towards the playoffs in the final weeks of regular season play. They next face the Oklahoma City Thunder on April 7, with ticket prices starting at $15.
3/31/15 - When the San Antonio Spurs meet up with the Heat on March 31, they will be looking to add another win to their burgeoning three-game winning streak that is part of a 13-3 record for the past 16 games. Although the Spurs season has not been what fans expect, they are in the midst of a surge that may just change their fate this season, as demonstrated by their most recent victory against the Grizzlies. The Spurs had a strong first and fourth period, helping them to win 103-89. Kawhi Leonard dominated the court, scoring 25 points and snagging 10 rebounds. If they continue to play this way, the Spurs may just find themselves doing well in the playoffs despite a low seed. Tickets for the Heat game are available starting at $34.
3/27/15 - The San Antonio Spurs' three game winning streak ended with a loss against the Dallas Mavericks on the 24th. The Spurs started out strong, going into half time in the lead by three. However, the Mavericks came back strong in the third quarter, outscoring the Spurs by 13. The Spurs were unable to overcome the deficit, despite having a strong fourth quarter. Manu Ginobili was back after sitting out due to an ankle sprain, but he only played 16 minutes. Kawhi Leonard scored 19 points for the Spurs, and Danny Green was also a high scorer with 17. The Spurs will look to get back to their winning ways when they head home for the next three games, starting with a game against the Thunder on the 25. Tickets are available starting at $19.
3/20/15 - With the season quickly winding down, the San Antonio Spurs continue to do excellent. After ending their six-game winning streak, the Spurs have won three of their last five games, one of which saw San Antonio to an impressive 123 points. Even in the two that they lost, the Spurs were well over 100 points. Hopefully they will be able to maintain this pace up until their final game. There are only eight remaining home games, so be sure to catch them while you still can. Your next opportunity will be on March 20th when the Spurs take on the Boston Celtics. A few tickets for that game are still available staring at $62. After that match, they will not return to San Antonio until March 25th.
3/12/15 - With only 19 games remaining on their schedule, the San Antonio Spurs seem to finally be rolling, winning each of their last six games by an average of 15 points. They will take on three of the East’s best during their current five-game home stand, and have already bested Chicago and Toronto this week. Thursday night marks a potential NBA Finals preview, as LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers make their only visit to the AT&T Center this season—LeBron’s first visit since last year’s Finals, as a member of the Miami heat. Can the Spurs make it seven straight and sweep three of the best in the Eastern Conference? Great seats are still available for Spurs vs. Cavs starting at $94, but supplies are limited!
3/6/15 - Following an uncharacteristic four-game skid, Tim Duncan called his team a “work in progress”. Sitting just three games ahead of the red-hot Oklahoma City Thunder, the San Antonio Spurs knew they couldn’t afford to spend much more time finding themselves as a team. The defending champs have since won three straight, defeating the Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns on the road before returning home to drub the Kings one more time at the AT&T Center. Kawhi Leonard led the way with 21 points and five boards, and Greg Popovich was able to rest his starting five for extended durations in the blowout victory. San Antonio will look to keep up their winning ways when they host the struggling Denver Nuggets on Friday night, and you can be there live for as low as $29!
2/27/15 - A season-high 22 turnovers doomed the San Antonio Spurs in Utah, as the defending champs dropped their third straight game on the road following the All Star break. The Spurs have been known to use their annual “Rodeo Road Trip” to build momentum for the stretch run into the playoffs each season, but ran up against two of the West’s top teams in Golden State and the L.A. Clippers before stumbling versus the Jazz on Monday night. Tim Duncan and his squad will have an opportunity to turn things around on Wednesday when they face the Portland Trail Blazers, and a select number of seats for the game are still available! Get in for as low as $37, but don’t delay because tickets won’t last long!
2/18/15 - Marco Belinelli came up short in his bid to repeat as the champion of the annual Three-Point Shootout during All Star Weekend, but the San Antonio Spurs reserve still has plenty to look forward to, as his team enters into the final leg of the season where they are known to finish strong and build momentum for the playoffs. The Spurs will continue their season-high nine-game road trip on Thursday with a visit to the Staples Center where they will battle it out with Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers, who loom above them in the standings by mere percentage points. Come out and be a part of the playoff race, with seats selling as low as $43! Ticket supplies are limited, so don’t hesitate!
2/12/15 - The reigning champion San Antonio Spurs needed a big rally in the fourth quarter to earn coach Greg Popovich his 1,000th career win, outscoring the Indiana Pacers 30-14 in the final frame to steal a narrow 95-93 victory on the road. Pop becomes only the fourth NBA coach to accumulate one thousand victories, alongside fellow luminaries Phil Jackson, Pat Riley, and Jerry Sloan—the only other coach to achieve the feat while coaching a single team. The Spurs will have a chance to move Pop’s win total up to 1,001 before the All Star break, as they travel to Detroit to face off with the Pistons on Wednesday evening. Great seats at the Palace of Auburn Hills are still available starting at just $4 each!
2/4/15 - With just two home games remaining before their annual Rodeo Road Trip, the San Antonio Spurs are maintaining their position among the top eight in the Western Conference, winning seven of their last nine games to lift their record to 30-18 overall. Tim Duncan and his squad are known for building momentum during mid-Feburary, when the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo takes over the AT&T Center for two weeks, forcing the Spurs into an extended set of away games. Hometown fans will have two more chances to see the team this week, with the Orlando Magic in town Wednesday night (tickets from just $6!) and the Miami Heat visiting on Friday—come see the defending champs take on their former Eastern rivals with tickets starting at $42.
1/27/15 - The San Antonio Spurs were up to four victories in a row when they beat the Denver Nuggets 109-99 on Jan. 20th. Unfortunately, their final game on the road proved to be too much and they lost their streak to the Chicago Bulls. However, the Spurs can rest a little easier now, because they are just starting a series of six home games, which is also an excellent opportunity for any fans to catch them live. So far, they have made the most of the home court advantage, beating the Los Angeles Lakers 85-99 and the Milwaukee Bucks 95-101. Things are certainly looking up as their record improves to 29-17, placing them fourth in their division. They play the Charlotte Hornets next on Jan. 28th and tickets start at only $5.
1/22/15 - Sunday night marked the third straight win for the San Antonio Spurs, who will now have an even easier time resting their veteran stars, as Kawhi Leonard has returned to the lineup after suffering a ligament tear in his right hand on December 9th. Leonard made his presence known in his first game back Friday night, as he scored 20 points and dished five assists en route to a Spurs victory over the powerhouse Portland Trail Blazers. San Antonio went on to dispatch the Utah Jazz two nights later, 89-69, improving their record to 26-16 overall. They will play their next two on the road, starting with the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday (tickets from just $18!) before flying to Chicago to face off with the Bulls. Get in the United Center and be a part of the action starting at $48.
1/15/15 - Fresh off a successful season last year, the San Antonio Spurs are hoping to keep their momentum going this season. On January 13, 2015, the Spurs took on the very talented Wizards. It was a very close game, but they didn’t do enough to win at the end. The final score ended up being 101-93. Tim Duncan had a great game on the boards, getting 12 rebounds. However, starts like Tony Parker and Danny Green failed to do a lot on the offensive end. They will need to adjust their scheme going forward. An upcoming game for them that is a must-win situation takes place Friday against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Spurs have a lot of talent, so it’s a very winnable game for them. Tickets can be bought now for $34.
1/6/15 - The San Antonio Spurs will enjoy three days of rest after a narrow loss to the resurgent Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night, 105-104. The loss dropped the defending champs to 21-15 for the season, although Greg Popovich’s team is known for focusing on the big picture—they typically hit their stride following the All-Star break, so as to enter the playoffs with strong momentum. They will need to notch wins whenever possible, though, as they hover only three games above the New Orleans Pelicans, who are vying for the final playoff spot in the West this season. Next up for the champs is a home game versus the Phoenix Suns, whose run-and-gun style will test the Spurs’ vaunted defense. Get in with Razorgator for as low as $19!
1/2/15 - Break your winter doldrums by coming out to the AT&T Center to see the San Antonio Spurs. On January 3, catch them playing the Washington Wizards. Tickets are available from Razorgator starting at just $38. The Spurs sit in 4th place in the Southwest Division. They admit they’ve been up and down, because they’re playing good teams without key players who are out with injuries. However, Danny Green, Manu Ginobili, and Tim Duncan led the reigning champions to a win against the Houston Rockets with 56 points between them in a 110 point game. On Tuesday, January 6, the Spurs host the Detroit Pistons. Tickets for this game start at $7. The Spurs wrap up four games at home on Friday, the 9th, when they play the Phoenix Suns. Get your tickets for this game before they’re gone.
12/26/14 - After a rare four-game losing streak, the reigning NBA champions finally got back on track Monday night. The San Antonio Spurs defeated the Los Angeles Clippers at home, 125-118, following a series of setbacks that included two heartbreaking triple-overtime losses in a row, to Western Conference rivals Memphis and Portland. All-star Manu Ginobili was forced to log heavy minutes in the absence of usual starter Tony Parker during the skid, deviating from Spurs coach Greg Popovich’s usual strategy of resting his veterans via off-days and limited playing time in regular season games. Parker returned with a vengeance on Monday, though, pouring in 26 points to help lift San Antonio to an 18-11 record for the season. Next up, the Spurs will play host to rival Oklahoma City in a Christmas Day clash—Razorgator still has great seats from $51, but don’t wait because they’re going fast!
12/19/14 - The San Antonio Spurs fell to the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night 108-95, with both Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili sitting out. Duncan was out on rest and Ginobili was out for injury to his lower back. The Spurs are currently 17-8 and over the last five games, have gone 2-3. Kawhi Leonard scored the high in points with 21 and had nine rebounds. However, he suffered an injury to his left hand. While the x-ray results were negative, Leonard will have to sit out the next game due to soreness. Tony Parker was also out of the game due to a strained left hamstring from the 107-101 victory against Memphis on Dec. 5. The Spurs hope to redeem themselves when they play the Portland Trail Blazers again Friday night on their home court at the AT&T Center in San Antonio. Tickets for the game are currently starting at $15.
12/11/14 - Wednesday’s matchup between the San Antonio Spurs and the New York Knicks was missing a few stars, but it still provided a thrilling game. With Carmelo Anthony out for the Knicks and Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Tim Duncan resting for the Spurs, the game turned into a competition of depth. Following a Boris Diaw jumper in the second quarter, the Spurs held onto a four-point lead at halftime. San Antonio was able to keep its foot on the pedal and extended their lead to 14 in the fourth quarter as the team won 109-95. In their next game, the Spurs will host the Los Angeles Lakers, who are struggling despite the return of Kobe Bryant. As the Spurs battle for position in the Western Conference, the Lakers will be trying to redeem what has been a disappointing season for the 6-16 squad. Tickets for the event are on sale now, starting at just $24.
12/5/14 - The San Antonio Spurs may be the reigning NBA champions, but so far they have a lackluster record this season at 13-5, which puts them ranked 4th in the Southwest Division. They lost their latest game to the Brooklyn Nets 93-95 in overtime, which ended their eight-game winning streak. With six minutes remaining in regulation, the Spurs evened out the score with the Nets 14 points ahead, forcing the game to go into overtime. The winning basket for the Nets came from Joe Johnson, who only scored 8 points in the whole game. The Spurs next opponent, the Memphis Grizzlies, is sure to provide them with another tough game. They face each other on December 5 in Memphis. The game will see if the Spurs can bring back their championship skills. Tickets are still available, starting at $21.
11/24/14 - Tonight, Friday November 21, 2014, the San Antonio Spurs took on the Minnesota Timberwolves. They ended up coming away with the victory, with a final score of 121-92. They looked great throughout the entire game, and a huge reason for their success was because of Tony Parker. He ended up scoring 28 points and had 5 assists. He simply couldn’t stop scoring in the game, and he spread the ball around to his teammates with effortless poise. Danny Green, their dynamic guard, also had a great game, scoring 18 points. Up next for them is a competitive, fun game with the Brooklyn Nets. It should be a fast-paced game filled with a lot of offense. Tickets can be bought now for a low price of $19.
11/19/14 - Even after winning the NBA championship, Spurs tickets are still some of the least expensive in the league on the secondary market. According to Razorgator, San Antonio’s next home game against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday has an average price of just $95.18, while the following home game against the Indiana Pacers has an average of $83.09. The Spurs have not been dominant with a 6-4 record, but prices that lowe still create a great value for fans in the San Antonio area.
11/18/14 - The San Antonio Spurs ended a three-game slide on Saturday with their first loss in more than a week. Unfortunately, the Sacramento Kings (6-4) were able to just barely beat out San Antonio. Sadly, this does lower the Spurs into the last position for the Southwest Division at 5-4, but they aren’t behind by much. In fact, if they can get one more win, they will pass the New Orleans Pelicans. San Antonio will be playing the Philadelphia 76ers, who are yet to get a single win, on Monday, so it looks like they are ready to make that happen. That game promises to be very exciting for any Spurs fan, and tickets for that match on the 17th are still available for only $6.
11/14/14 - The defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs have wavered over the season’s first three weeks, but Spurs tickets at the AT&T Center continue to garner high demand when the team plays at home. The team has dropped notable games against the struggling Suns and Pelicans but compiled a win streak with victories against the Clippers and Warriors on a California road trip this week. They’ll take on the Lakers and Kings over the weekend with a combined average price of $216, according to Razorgator.
11/13/14 - Monday night featured an incredibly close game between the San Antonia Spurs and the Los Angeles Clippers. The first quarter ended with the Spurs behind at 14-20 and they were still behind at the half and third quarter. In the final quarter, they were able to score 25 points over the Clipper’s 15 bringing the final score to 89-85. Both teams brought an impressive defense leading to below average scores on both sides. This game evens out the San Antonio Spurs’ wins and losses at three each but still leaves them 5th in the South West Division. The next few games are going to be important for the team. They have an opportunity to beef up their ratio coming up, but every game is going to have to count.
11/11/14 - The San Antonio Spurs are off to a slow start this year who come into this season as the defending NBA Champions. The Spurs defeated the Los Angeles Clippers Monday night and their next home game will come on November 17 against the winless Philadelphia 76ers. According to Razorgator, San Antonio Spurs tickets against the Sixers have a average price of just $55.24.
11/7/14 - The 2014-2015 NBA season is in full swing, and the San Antonio Spurs are ready to defend their NBA title in their quest to finally repeat as champions. After returning their entire core, the Spurs are poised to dominate the Southwest division yet again. Come out to the AT&T Center to support your hometown Spurs as they try to rebound from a road loss to the young Phoenix Suns and get back on the winning track. With home contests coming up against Atlanta and New Orleans (featuring young phenom Anthony Davis), there is no better time than now to make it out to a game to cheer on Coach Pop and the Spurs. Razorgator has the very best seats available starting at only $6.
8/19/14 – The San Antonio Spurs’ 2014-2015 schedule released last week, and now the defending champions know who they’ll need to beat, and when they need to do it, on their quest for a franchise-first repeat. The Silver and Black will be receiving their championship rings and a brand new banner on Oct. 28 at AT&T Center vs. the Mavericks. Buy Dallas-San Antonio tickets for this “Ring Night” ceremony and tip off the season with a classic rivalry game!

Patty Mills is currently recovering from injury and will sit out to start the season, but you can buy San Antonio Spurs tickets to see the rest of last year’s title-winning team in action—plus the debut of rookie Kyle Anderson!
Revenge is sweet, and you can say that again! The San Antonio Spurs battled some hurdles on their way to winning a fifth NBA title in 16 years and, with all of their superstars returning, San Antonio is on the hunt for a repeat championship for the first time in franchise history. The Spurs suffered a heart breaking defeat by Miami in the 2013 Finals; a year later the squad used the devastating loss as fuel for vengeance in 2014. The Spurs punched their ticket to the postseason early, with a league-best 62-20 record. San Antonio struggled in Round 1 against the Dallas Mavericks, but eventually beat them in seven games—advancing to make mincemeat of their subsequent opponents: Portland (4-1), Oklahoma City (4-2) and, finally, the Miami Heat (4-1).
Coming into the 2014-2015 season, Gregg Popovich returns his stellar champion squad that set NBA records for outscoring opponents, average win-margin and shooting percentage in the playoffs—all despite talk of an aging roster and Big Three. The campaign was pure, unadulterated teamwork, showcased beautifully by the likes of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard. With the final pick in the first round, the Spurs selected UCLA’s utility player Kyle Anderson. In the front office, the franchise made a historic move by hiring WNBA star Becky Hammon as assistant coach—the first full-time paid female assistant coach in the NBA. Buy San Antonio Spurs tickets now and see these reigning champs defend their title in 2105!
6/11/14 - With a big first quarter, and a big game from forward Kawhi Leonard, the San Antonio Spurs claimed Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Miami, 111-92. The Miami Heat could only manage to outscore the Spurs in one quarter – the third – as San Antonio grabbed a huge 16 point lead in the first quarter, and from there never looked back. Leonard was the offensive star of the game with a game-high 29 points, plus four rebounds, a pair of assists, another pair of steals, and a pair of blocked shots. The Spurs also got important contributions from Tony Parker and Danny Green (15 points each), Tim Duncan (14 points, six rebounds), and Manu Ginobili (11 points off the bench). As a team, the Spurs hit on nearly 60% of their shots (59.4%) for the game, with an advantage on fast break points as well (12-4). Game 4 is in Miami, then the action returns to San Antonio over the weekend.
6/9/14 - The air conditioning unit that failed right before tipoff of Game 1 has been fixed. But now do the San Antonio Spurs need some fixing? The Spurs were unable to hold down a cramp-free LeBron James, who exploded for 35 points and led the Miami Heat to victory in Game 2, 98-96. Unlike in Game 1, the Spurs only got double-digit performances from just three players – Tony Parker, who had 21 points and seven assists; Manu Ginobili, who tossed in 19 points coming off the bench; and Tim Duncan, who had the only double-double (his second of the series), of 18 points and 15 rebounds. Another reserve, Boris Diaw, contributed 10 rebounds, seven points and five assists. Action moves to south Florida for the next two games, Tuesday and Thursday of this week.
6/6/14 - They report that the air-conditioning unit at the AT&T Center that failed during Game 1 of the NBA Finals has been fixed. But the damage has been done, as the San Antonio spurs managed to keep their cool in a suddenly sweltering arena to grab a 1-0 lead over defending champions Miami, 110-95. The visiting Heat were without their main man for much of the key fourth quarter, as LeBron James found himself completely gassed from the higher temperatures, and eventually had to be carried off the court by teammates suffering from severe cramping in his legs – still, LBJ collected 25 points as the visitors’ top scorer. Four Spurs starters – Tim Duncan (21, team high), Tony Parker (19), Tiago Splitter (14) and Danny Green (13), plus sixth man Manu Ginobili (16) scored in double figures for the Spurs, with Duncan’s 10 rebounds and Ginobili’s 11 assists giving them both double-doubles for the night. Boris Diaw also contributed 10 boards and six assists off the bench, and Parker handed out eight assists.
6/4/14 - With the start of the NBA Finals just around the corner, the San Antonio Spurs are making sure every weapon at their disposal is available for the coming battle – including guard Tony Parker, who is battling nagging nicks (including a sprained ankle) but has pronounced himself ready to play for Game 1, he said to a French radio station. The oddsmakers have the Spurs as a slight favorite ahead of the opening game, reversing the odds initially posted at the beginning of the season, and in Game 1 specifically, the Spurs are 4 ½ point favorites, up from 3 ½ points at the beginning of the month. Parker was the only Spurs player named to an all-NBA team, earning a nod as all-league second team. Interesting stat of the week: The Spurs have nine international players on their playoff roster, representing six countries (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, and Italy) and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
6/3/14 - It’s a rematch of last year’s NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat. It’s the sixth time in Spurs history that the team has played for the league championship, and the first rematch in back to back years since the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz met in 1997 and 1998. Obviously the Spurs are hoping to avoid duplicating last season’s result, when they extended the Heat to seven games – but unlike last season, the Spurs have the benefit of being the team with the best overall record in the league, and thus home court advantage in the NBA Finals. Team scoring leader Tony Parker has increased his output from the regular season (16.7 ppg) to the postseason (17.2 ppg) while being a little more selfish (5.7 regular season vs. 4.9 postseason assists per game). Veteran Tim Duncan’s numbers in rebounding (9.7/8.9) and blocks (1.9/1.4) per game have fallen slightly from the postseason, but still lead the team. Game 1 of the Finals starts on Thursday, June 5 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
5/28/14 - Everybody who played in Game 4 for the San Antonio Spurs scored – it’s just that they didn’t score enough, falling for the second time on the road in Oklahoma City, this time by a 105-92 count. While all 13 Spurs scored, just four – starters Tony Parker (14) and Kawhi Leonard (10), and reserves Boris Diaw (14) and Cory Joseph (11) broke into double figures. Diaw collected a double-double, pulling down 10 rebounds to go along with his points. As a team, the Spurs shooting was well off the percentages they had in San Antonio; in Game 4 alone, the team made just 39.8% of their shots, and had just 17 assists. The Spurs will definitely be looking forward to getting back to the AT&T Center in San Antonio, if the results are any indication; and Game 5 is coming up.
5/23/14 - The domination continues for the San Antonio Spurs. Although the scoring in the paint wasn’t as dominant as in Game 1, the overall score – a 112-77 blowout – was much more severe. San Antonio’s defense held Oklahoma City’s two main scorers to 15 points each, while Tony Parker had a game-high 22 points to go along with five assists, and Danny Green added 21 points, including seven three-pointers. Tim Duncan notched a double-double of 14 points and 12 rebounds, as well as a pair of blocks; Tiago Splitter nearly had a double-double, scoring nine points and pulling down 10 boards, plus three blocks. As noted, the Spurs advantage on points in the paint (54-42) was down from Game 1, but the rebounding advantage (53-38) was significant, as was the disparity in shooting; the Spurs hit exactly 50% of their shots from the field, while Oklahom City could manage just 39.3%. The series now shifts to Oklahoma City for Game 3 on Sunday.
5/20/14 - A key Oklahoma City player was missing from their lineup, and surely enough, the San Antonio Spurs took notice, making 67% of their shots in the paint and 57.5% overall en route to claiming a 122-105 victory in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. OKC’s Serge Ibaka, as was noted in a story on the data-journalism site FiveThirtyEight, is normally one of the most effective rim defenders in the NBA; however, he is out for the rest of the playoffs due to a calf injury suffered in Game 6 of the previous round, and the Spurs took full advantage, to the tune of a 66-32 advantage in points in the paint. Tim Duncan led the way for the Spurs, with 27 points and seven rebounds; Manu Ginobili added 18 points off the bench; while Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green each contributed 16 points, and Tony Parker had a double-double of 14 points and 12 assists.
5/16/14 - For the third straight season, the San Antonio Spurs find themselves in the Western Conference finals, just four wins away from the NBA Finals. After failing to sweep Portland with a 103-92 loss in Oregon, the Spurs returned to San Antonio and finished off business with a 104-82 win over the Trail Blazers. Although Tony Parker played just 10 minutes, backup Patty Mills filled in admirably, scoring 18 points along with three rebounds, three steals, a pair of assists, and a blocked shot. Leading scorers for the Spurs were Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard, who each contributed 22 points; Green added nine rebounds to his stat line, while Leonard pulled down seven rebounds, and five steals.

In the second round against Portland, the Spurs are averaging 116 points per game, while holding the Trail Blazers to just a fraction over 97 points per game. Guard Tony Parker has been the driving force behind the Spurs effort; over the three games in the series, the French international is averaging 26 points per game, and has been the Spurs’ leading scorer in Games 1 and 3.

Next up for the Spurs will be the somewhat surprising Portland Trail Blazers, who took just six games to eliminate San Antonio’s other Texas rival, Houston.
4/28/14 - This has not been a good postseason first round for top seeds in the NBA so far – both Indiana in the East and the San Antonio Spurs in the West have found themselves in pitched battles with low seeded opposition. The Spurs find themselves down two games to one to West eighth seed Dallas in their series, with “Vinsanity” making a return to the headlines after the Mavs’ Vince Carter dropped a winning trey on the Spurs. Where has the difference maker been? The San Antonio Express-News opines that less than stellar contributions from San Antonio’s bench could be the culprit. Normally a strength, the newspaper reported head coach Gregg Popovich as saying, “Our bench has to give us something.”
4/21/14 - It was a classic performance by the West’s top seed, the San Antonio Spurs.

Neither Tim Duncan nor Manu ginobili were even on the bench for the game, which featured a 33-point outburst from Danny Green, which included 7 of 10 from three point land. Starters Kawhi Leonard and tony Parker each notched 18 points; bench contributions came from Marco Belinelli (12 points), Boris Diaw (11 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals), and Jeff Ayres (10 rebounds and a pair of blocked shots).

4/8/14 - After reeling off 19 straight wins, the San Antonio Spurs finally dropped a game – but it took big nights for Oklahoma City’s stars, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, to get it done, as the Spurs fell 106-94 on the road. However, San Antonio bounced back strongly, knocking off Memphis 112-92 over the weekend. Starter Kawhi Leonard and reserve Manu Ginobili each scored 26 points, while Tim Duncan contributed 13 points and Tony Parker 10 in the bounceback win. Parker would leave the game in the first quarter, however, with back spasms; he was slated to undergo an MRI on April 7, according to the San Antonio Express-News.
3/31/14 - Winners of 17 straight, the San Antonio Spurs have picked the absolute best time of the season to peak.

3/7/14 - Just how thorough were the San Antonio Spurs in their 122-101 victory over Cleveland earlier in the week?

Danny Green led the Spurs’ scoring attack with 24 points. Veteran center Tim Duncan cleared eight boards, moving him past Hall of Famer Wes Unseld into 11th place on the list of most rebounds in a career. Defensively, the Spurs held Cleveland to just five points in the paint for the game.
2/28/14 - San Antonio has gotten some good news on the injury front in the last few days, as forward Kawhi Leonard returned to action in the Spurs’ 120-110 dismantling of Detroit earlier in the week; and All Star guard Tony Parker is expected to be back in the Spurs lineup “no later than Sunday,” coach Gregg Popovich told the San Antonio Express-News newspaper. No fewer than eight Spurs rung up double figures in scoring over the Pistons, led by Marco Belinelli’s 20 coming off the bench, Manu Ginobili’s 16, and Leonard’s 15 point contribution.

2/20/14 - San Antonio, riding high in the West standings, made a single minor deal at the NBA’s trading deadline on February 20, sending guard Nando de Colo to Toronto for lightly-used forward Austin Daye. Daye, a 6’11” Gonzaga product, had only appeared in eight games for the Raptors, averaging just a point a game. Also in off the court news, guard Tony Parker is expected to be out “with a variety of maladies,” according to coach Gregg Popovich, as reported by ESPN. Parker played in last weekend’s All Star Game as a reserve, collecting four points, two rebounds and an assist in 11 minutes of playing time for the West.
2/10/14 - The San Antonio Spurs got help from a surprising source over the weekend while sneaking by the Charlotte Bobcats: 32 points, including 18 in the fourth quarter, from the Australian Patty Mills.

Mills would step up for the Spurs; saying after the game that it reminded him of playing for the Australian national team in the 2012 Olympics.
2/3/14 - Every year the San Antonio Spurs get written off before the season starts because of the advancing age of many of their key players…but apparently the Spurs aren’t listening to the naysayers. The Spurs continue to have one of the top records in the entire league, standing second in the Western Conference just three games back of the pacesetting Oklahoma City Thunder. The Spurs are winning with equal parts grit, guts, and luck as well, escaping an upset bid by the Sacramento Kings on February 1 95-93 at AT&T Center.
1/21/14 - The San Antonio Spurs may have a stranglehold over the Southwest Division with a four game lead, but they are just one game ahead of Portland, who is nipping at their heels for the Western Conference’s No. 1 seed. Still, MVP candidate Tony Parker and the Spurs are playing at an elite level, achieving a glimmering 32-9 record and losing just two games thus far this year. This Friday will present an interesting match: former Spur’s assistant coach Mike Budenholzer will meet his old boss, Gregg Popovich, in his first year as head coach for the Atlanta Hawks. Tickets are an affordable $38 for this road game in Atlanta on 1/24. From there, the Spurs move onto Eastern Conference juggernauts, the Heat, for a possible play-off preview game as they try and send Miami further into a skid; this game offers the most expensive San Antonio Spurs tickets, at $104 to start and running up to $5975 for coveted courtside seats. At home San Antonio will take on the OKC Thunder toting MVP-worthy Kevin Durant tomorrow (get-in for just $12) and the Chicago Bulls next Wednesday (get-in for a mere $4 on 1/29).
Expected to be in the mix to defend their Western Conference title, the Spurs have started the season 4-1. Leader Tim Duncan has been bothered by chest contusions, but his dependable teammates have continued to play smart Spurs basketball, picking up wins against the Grizzlies, Lakers, Nuggets and Suns. Coach Popovich was recently voted the league’s best at making in-game adjustments which has already been showcased five games into the season. He runs one of the best offenses in the NBA, and is respected league-wide especially by his veteran players. While the Spurs roster didn’t see any major changes this offseason, ticket prices did. San Antonio Spurs tickets are up 128% since last year but are still under the league average and ninth cheapest in the NBA.
The Spurs hope for another shot to win the NBA Championship after being just seconds away from victory in Game 6 against the Heat. While the core of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili will be another year older, coach Greg Popovich can expect improvement from emerging star Kawhi Leonard and promising Brazilian big-man Tiago Splitter. The 2013-14 season opener comes on 10/30 at home in a Western Conference Final rematch against the Grizzlies. If the starters play, the Spurs will have a chance at revenge against the Heat in Miami on 1/26 and at home at the AT&T Center on 3/6.
5/13/13 - San Antonio finished off the young Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night, sweeping the 4-game Western Conference Semifinals series.

3/22/13 - The San Antonio Spurs expect their leading scorer, Tony Parker, back Friday against the Utah Jazz after being out for eight games with a sprained ankle.

The most expensive games left on the Spurs schedule are against the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers. Cheap tickets are not just for lottery teams - aside from the Heat and Clippers, all remaining Spurs home games have tickets listed at $2 or less.
2/21/13 - 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.
