The San Antonio Spurs haven’t lost since Feb. 21 at the Phoenix Suns 106-85.
San Antonio’s bowled over the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers twice each in addition to beating the Detroit Pistons, Charlotte Bobcats, Dallas Mavericks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, Chicago Bulls, Portland Trail Blazers, Utah Jazz, Sacramento Kings, Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers. That’s almost half of the league.
A win over the New Orleans Pelicans Saturday night would be the Spurs’ 17th consecutive victory, tying the Feb. 29-March 31, 1996, franchise mark, and would also mean San Antonio’s beaten 15 of 29 other NBA teams during the streak.
The Spurs have hardly been tested during their winning streak, with only five victories coming by single digits, taking over during the fourth quarter in San Antonio against Charlotte and Orlando. So far Dallas has arguably given the Spurs their biggest scare at the AT&T Center since a nine-game road trip coming up short 112-106 March 2.
