San Antonio Spurs set franchise record with 64th win
The San Antonio Spurs set their franchise record for wins in a single season after improving to 64–12 with a victory over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday.
San Antonio never trailed in the game, pulling off a 102–95 win in what proved to be very tight game. The Spurs were led by Kawhi Leonard and LaMarus Aldridge, who finished with 64 combined points. Leonard’s 33 points were a career high.
The Spurs previous-best regular season came in 2005–2006, when they finished 63–19.
After the game, San Antonio players talked about how they were not spending time focusing on the record.
''We don't pay attention, nor are allowed to care,'' San Antonio guard Danny Green said via the Associated Press. ''It's fun to be a part of something big, or be a part of history or make history, but we're looking at the bigger pictures.''
The win also improves San Antonio’s NBA record for most consecutive home wins in a season to 39.
The Spurs next play the Utah Jazz on the road Tuesday.
