When will the 2018-19 season start for the San Antonio Spurs?
The San Antonio Spurs will soon take the court for the 2018-19 season. It’s the latest quest towards a championship, something they have not achieved since 2013-14. This did not come close in the last campaign, with a playoff departure in the first round, in five games, to the Golden State Warriors.
The road to glory in 2018-19 will start on Wednesday, Oct. 17 vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves. It takes place at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX.

San Antonio and Minnesota went head-to-head in the 2017-18 opener, with the former as the winner. One year later, they will go back to battle to either start 1-0 or 0-1. It does not determine the fate for both squads, as there are still 81 games after Opening Night, but NBA fans will receive a look at teams with different rosters.
After this, the Spurs have games spread across October, with no back-to-backs until Nov. 3 and 4, as part of the NBA’s plan to limit these situations as much as possible. So the Silver Black, with or without a 41-year-old Manu Ginobili, will have ample time to rest.
Everything begins on Opening Night, however. It’s the date for Spurs fans to look towards, especially once training camp and the preseason take place in September and early October, respectively. Are you excited for the 2018-19 season?
