Default Spurs first to 50 wins... again

Only 3 things happen every year: death, taxes and the Spurs winning 50 games. They are, once again, the first team to reach 50 wins. This will now mark the 1,345th time in a row the Spurs have won at least fifty games in a season.

10-game winning streak; - likely - 2 games ahead of OKC. They just won't go away...

And they would have won 50 in '99 had it not been a strike-shortened season.

I just made a thread on this lol. You know the thing I find the most impressive? When they won 50 games in the second lockout season.

There were only 66 total games, yet they still won 76% of their games and were the only team to hit the 50 win mark

Since 1997-98 season, Coach Pop, Tim Duncan and the Spurs have the best winning percentage over any 15-year span in NBA history at .702 (830-352) and have the best record in the four major professional sports (NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL) during this time period.

That season, after 21 games, they had a record of 12-9. Finished 38-7.
