The San Antonio Spurs schedule has now officially been released for the 2021-2022 regular season, and it looks like the team will be facing an uphill battle after dramatically reconstructing the roster.
The Spurs look like a new team after making several moves in free agency this summer and, as a result, should look like a relatively new team on the court next season. It appears that many of the Spurs' young players have been given the keys to the team and will be taking charge, many of whom are primed to make a big performance jump.
Their first regular-season game will come exactly two months from today on October 20 at home against the Orlando Magic. While this could turn out to be an easy win for the Spurs against a team that is still early in their rebuild, this will also be the first opportunity for Magic rookies Jalen Suggs and Franz Wagner to come out and make a statement.
Unfortunately, though, the Spurs' schedule will only grow increasingly difficult from here. While the remainder of October and early November will be a bit of a mixed bag in terms of difficulty, the team will likely face one of, if not the toughest 10-game stretches of the season beginning on November 14.
Here, we're going to briefly break down each game in that 10-game stretch and talk about why they will be particularly important for the Spurs moving forward.
