San Antonio Spurs 2014-2015 Game-By-Game Predictions

facebooktwitterreddit

Spurs fans, feel free to sit out the 2014-2015 NBA regular season.

For the past 15 years you have only cared about the Playoffs, and besides, I have the season results ready for you today.  From an analysis of past performance, and a bit of clairvoyance, I have assembled a game-by-game prediction for the upcoming season.

The Spurs will have a short slide down from their 60 win season of 2013-2014.  In their quest for their first back-to-back NBA Championship, I’m predicting a 57-25 regular season record.

Want to see how they will get there?  See below.
