The Spurs are 4-0 in such games, as they opened at home in the 1999-00 season, defeating the Philadelphia 76ers 89-76. They also opened at home in the 2003-04 season, as they defeated the Phoenix Suns 83-82. In 2005-06, they opened at home against the Denver Nuggets and defeated them 102-91. Lastly, they opened at home in the 2007-08 season, defeating the Portland Trail Blazers 106-97.
Their matchup against the Mavericks should be special, with the Spurs returning all of their key cogs that contributed to the 2014 NBA Championship team, hosting their in-state rival Mavericks, with Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis and new acquisition Chandler Parsons leading the way.
