The San Antonio Spurs are 14th in the Western Conference with a 13–29 record. Even despite the low season, San Antonio fans responded to the call for Friday’s game against the Golden State Warriors, filling the hall with Alamod and breaking the NBA attendance record that has stood for more than 20 years.
The NBA singles attendance record was set in 1998 when 62,046 fans gathered at the Georgia Dome to watch the Chicago Bulls play the Atlanta Hawks. On Friday, January 13, the Spurs officially broke the record with a crowd of 68,323 as Silver & Black returned to their former home. The announcement comes from former spur David Robinson, who is also part owner of the team.
