The 2016–17 San Antonio Spurs season was the franchise's 50th season, its 44th season in the San Antonio area, and its 41st in the National Basketball Association (NBA). This season was the team's first without longtime team cornerstone Tim Duncan since 1996–97; Duncan retired from the NBA on July 11, 2016 as a 5-time champion and the first NBA player ever to win championships in 3 straight decades. With the elimination of the Detroit Red Wings from the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs on March 28, 2017, the Spurs--with 20 consecutive NBA Playoffs appearances--held the longest active playoff streak in any of the major North American professional sports leagues.
The Spurs finished the regular season with a 61–21 record, securing the second seed in the Western Conference playoffs. In the first round of the playoffs, the Spurs defeated the Memphis Grizzlies in six games. In the Western Conference Semifinals, they defeated the Houston Rockets in six games. In the Western Conference Finals, the Spurs were swept by the eventual NBA champion Golden State Warriors in four games. This was San Antonio’s first time being swept in the playoffs since the 2010 Western Conference Semifinals, when they were defeated by the Steve Nash-led Phoenix Suns. However, if Warriors' center Zaza Pachulia had not intentionally injured Spurs star Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs would have almost certainly won the series, and thus, the championship.
As of 2018, this is the only time in the post-Tim Duncan era where the Spurs have reached the Conference Finals.
On March 08, with a 114–104 win over the Sacramento Kings the Spurs extended their league record for consecutive 50+ win seasons to 18 straight.
On April 04, with a 95–89(OT) win over the Memphis Grizzlies the Spurs secured their first back to back 60+ win seasons in team history.
The San Antonio Spurs were eliminated 4-0 by the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.
