Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Spurs vs Mavericks

Rival Team: Dallas Mavericks

The Spurs-Mavericks rivalry dates back to 1980 when the Mavericks joined the league. The rivalry has grown more heated since the 2000s when the Spurs and Mavs would regularly meet in the playoffs. The first playoff series between these two Texas-based teams took place in 2001 when the Spurs beat the Mavs four games to one. Perhaps the biggest series between the Spurs and Mavs occurred in 2006 when the Mavericks defeated the Spurs four games to three to advance to the Western Conference Finals. If you want to attend some of the best games of the season, then be sure to be in attendance when the Spurs take on the Mavs.

Spurs vs Rockets

Rival Team: Houston Rockets

The Spurs-Rockets rivalry is one of the fiercest in the Southwest Division and dates back to the NBA-ABA merger in 1976. These two Texas-based rivals have met in the playoffs three times with the Rocket getting the better of the Spurs all three times. There’s always a lot on the line when the Spurs and Rockets meet up, so don’t miss it.

Spurs vs Suns

Rival Team: Phoenix Suns

The Spurs and Suns have met in the playoffs ten times since 1992, which has led to the development of a deep-rooted hatred between these two Western Conference teams. In the early 90s, the Suns got the best of The Admiral and the Spurs. However, a decade later the Spurs would get their revenge as they stopped the Steve Nash-led Suns dead in their track a few times in the mid to late 2000s. If you want to see the AT&T Center come to life, then make sure to attend a Spurs-Suns game.

Spurs vs Lakers

Rival Team: Los Angeles Lakers

Over the years the Spurs and Lakers have developed a strong rivalry due to their many playoff matchups. These two teams first met in the 1982 Western Conference Finals. However, things didn’t heat up between them until 1999. Since then, the Spurs and Lakers have faced off against each other in the playoffs seven times creating one hell of a rivalry.

Fight Songs

  1. Go Spurs Go Chant

    Go Spurs Go!

    Go Spurs Go!

    Go Spurs Go!

  2. Spurs!

    by Spuran Spuran

  3. Go Spurs Go

    Go spurs go go (3x) get up stand up and defend the Alamo. Go spurs go go (3x) we’re gonna win it all for San Antonio

    No showtime leaps, they’re silent but deep but they can score at will and then give you the creep, cause they’re so good but not so emotional and they’re the masters of basketball fundamental

    They can slash and they can penetrate and then you’ll find out that it’s just a bait cause the moment your guys will clog up the lane they’re gonna pass for a three that will cause you pain
    Nothing flashy and nothing fancy but you can never question their efficiency, cause they’ve got no drama, no prima donna but they can pile up the points and then bury ya
    so what happens now when this team on a roll?
    every opponent in front will be steamrolled cause they will step up when they are called and even under pressure they never fold
    Go spurs go go (3x) get up stand up and defend the Alamo. Go spurs go go (3x) we’re gonna win it all for San Antonio

    They can be cool and they can also be nasty it all depends on what the need will be. Cause we’re talking about success, not failure, not bust because we believe “in pop we trust”

    So lemme tell you now what will be your situation? it’s the kind that will let you pick your poison. cause you’ll never know what hit ya from the front and back you’ll never know how they will attack.

    So many weapons so balanced and so complete it will be an honor just to be able to compete. as they can crush your team with their systematic offense and they can choke you down there with their tight defense.
    And they make no promises and no guarantees but with what i’m seeing now i’m gonna say this at least. That i may not be in texas to watch the games live but i know this year they will get five
    Go spurs go go (3x) get up stand up and defend the Alamo. Go spurs go go (3x) we’re gonna win it all for San Antonio
    We Drive, We Drive, We drive, We drive for five! We Drive, We Drive, We drive, We drive for five! (everybody) We Drive, We Drive, We drive, We drive for five! We Drive, We Drive, We drive, We drive for five! (Yeah!)
    Go spurs go go (3x) get up stand up and defend the Alamo. Go spurs go go (3x) we’re gonna win it all for San Antonio. (Repeat)
