Spurs hit the Courts this October!

There’s only one more month until it’s time for the San Antonio Spurs to get on the courts and play their preseason games...and then, it’s gonna be an action-packed three weeks! Here’s a quick roundup of who they’re playing and when:

Spurs Vs Phoenix Suns - October 3

The first preseason game for the Spurs, this match is a continuation of a rivalry that began in the 1990s. Members of the Western Conference Pacific Division, the Phoenix Suns have the fourth best all-time winning percentage in the NBA and hold the record for the highest winning percentage but never winning the NBA Championship...will this game be the start of a big change?

Spurs Vs Atlanta Hawks - October 8

From Atlanta, Georgia, the Atlanta Hawks are a franchise that formed in 1946 and went through several avatars - Tri-Cities Blackhawks, Milwaukee Hawks, and St. Louis Hawks - before getting their current name in 1968. Having only recently breaking their 48-year spell of not progressing beyond the playoffs’ second round, it remains to be seen how this season pans out!

Spurs Vs Detroit Pistons - October 10

Based in Auburn Hills, Michigan...a Detroit suburb, the Detroit Pistons are three-time NBA champions, having won the title in 1989, 1990, and 2004. The 2000s saw some rivalry between the Pistons and the Spurs, which has since settled down. Perhaps this coming game will see that fighting spirit resurface?

Spurs Vs Orlando Magic - October 12

Orlando Magic is a fairly young franchise, formed in 1989, that has reached the NBA Finals twice, in 1995 and 2009, but have yet to win themselves a title. With both the Magic and Spurs competing in the South West Division, ranked fifth and first respectively, this match should be fun to watch!

Spurs Vs Miami Heat - October 14

While the Spurs and Miami Heat don’t have a rivalry for the ages, fans are of the opinion that any matches between the teams are a thing of beauty to witness. Are you gonna be there to watch the magic happen?

Spurs Vs Houston Rockets - October 21

Another chance to watch the excitement of the “I-10” rivalry at play, fans are unlikely to miss this game. Named so since both cities are on the Interstate 10, the Rockets-Spurs rivalry has gone on for 40 years, beginning when the Spurs joined the NBA and beat the Rockets to the division title in 1977. Any bets on who comes out on top here?

With several name changes before finally adopting the name they are currently known by, the San Antonio Spurs began their tale as the Dallas Chapparals in 1967 in the erstwhile American Basketball Association (ABA). Today, they are one of the four teams from the ABA to remain intact in the NBA after the ABA-NBA merger of 1976, and the only one to have won a championship.

Over the course of their career, the Spurs have emerged as a five-time NBA championship team, who have also netted 20 divisional titles. In the last 25 NBA seasons, the Spurs have made it to the playoffs 24 times and are today ranked first among the active franchises with a highest winning percentage in the history of the NBA.

As a team, the Spurs are easily recognized by their silver and black colours, their “Coyote” mascot, and their logo, not so coincidentally the spurs you see on the heels of cowboys’ boots. Within the team itself, the most revered players are the Spurs’ Big Three - Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker
