The San Antonio Spurs are an American professional basketball team based in San Antonio, Texas. They are part of the Southwest Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Spurs are one of four former American Basketball Association teams to remain intact in the NBA after the 1976 ABA-NBA merger and is the only former ABA team to have won an NBA championship. The Spurs' four NBA championships are the fourth most in NBA history, behind only the Boston Celtics (17), Los Angeles Lakers (16) and Chicago Bulls (6). The Spurs' perfect record in NBA Finals series is surpassed only by the Chicago Bulls, who have won six without a loss; the Bulls and Spurs are the only two teams to maintain perfect records through multiple Finals series. As of July 2009, the Spurs rank third among active franchises for the highest winning percentage in NBA history; they have only missed the playoffs four times as an NBA franchise. In their 37 NBA seasons since 1976–1977, the Spurs have captured 19 division titles. They have made the playoffs in 22 of the last 23 seasons, and have not missed the playoffs in the 16 seasons since Tim Duncan was drafted by the Spurs in 1997. With their 50th win in the 2012-2013 season, the Spurs extended their record for most consecutive 50+ win seasons to 14 (the 1998/1999 season was shortened to 50 games because of a lockout and based on their win percentage of .740, would have easily surpassed 60 wins in an 82-game season). They are the only team in the NBA with a tied or better head-to-head regular season record against every active team, but the Los Angeles Lakers. (Spurs and Trail Blazers are tied at 74 games each in head-to-head matches.)
The Suns beat the Spurs 108-105 in Mexico City thanks to Devin Booker, who tied his career-high with 39 points for Phoenix. Kawhi Leonard scored a career-high 38 points for the Spurs in the loss.
