The San Antonio Spurs finally know their exact path to another playoff berth. With 27 games down, they’ll have five more before the All-Star break on the weekend of March 6th to put them at 32. Their five postponed games, as we expected, will lead to more back-to-backs in the second half of the season, which is less than ideal for a team immune to winning on the back end of those.

The Spurs will need to squeeze in 40 games to meet the NBA’s mark of a 72-game season so will be playing more frequently than before to make up ground.

According to the official release by the league, the second half of the schedule will look as follows (all times Eastern)

A Quick breakdown of the San Antonio Spurs’ schedule

Unfortunately for the Spurs, the second half of the schedule will feature 11 back-to-backs, so they’ll now have 12 total remaining when you include the Brooklyn/New York games to begin March.

While they’ll have a stretch of 11 straight home games from March 22-March 31st, they’ll be spending much of April and May on the road before wrapping up their season with a two-game homestand against the surprising Phoenix Suns.
