Spurs Announce 2012-13 Schedule
Spurs 40th Anniversary Season Tips-Off Oct. 31 at New Orleans
The San Antonio Spurs will begin their 40th season of professional basketball on Wednesday, Oct. 31 against No.1 draft pick Anthony Davis and the Hornets at New Orleans. The Spurs will turn around and host their home opener at the AT&T Center on Nov. 1 at 8:30 p.m. against the Oklahoma City Thunder in a rematch of last season’s Western Conference Finals.
Celebrating their 40th anniversary of professional basketball, the Spurs played their first official game on Oct. 10, 1973 against the San Diego Conquistadors in a matchup of ABA teams. Since joining the NBA in 1976, the Spurs have only missed the playoffs four times and sport a winning percentage of .607 (1764-1140), which ranks second in the league over that time period. And since Tim Duncan joined the team, the Spurs have the best winning percentage over any 15-year span in NBA history with a .702 (830-352) mark. The .702 winning percentage is the top winning percentage in all four major sports over the past 15 seasons (1997-present).
The Silver and Black will face the defending NBA champions Miami Heat on Thursday, Nov. 29 in Miami and will host LeBron James and company at the AT&T Center on Sunday, March 31. Spurs fans will get their first look at Steve Nash in a Lakers jersey when Los Angeles visits San Antonio on January 9.
The Spurs hit the road and travel on a nine-game away stretch starting Wednesday, Feb. 6. for their annual rodeo road trip and will return to Alamo City Wednesday, Feb. 27 to host the Phoenix Suns.
