The 2017–18 San Antonio Spurs season was the 51st season of the franchise, 42nd in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and 45th in the San Antonio area.

On March 10, 2018, the Spurs finished with a losing season on the road for the first time since 1997 after a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but with a win against the Washington Wizards on March 21, 2018, the Spurs clinched an NBA record 21st consecutive winning season. With a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on April 3, 2018, the streak of 20 straight seasons of 50 wins or more (and 20 straight seasons with a record of .600 or better) ended for the Spurs. The streak lasted since the 1997–98 season, not counting the shortened lockout season. Despite that, the Spurs clinched their 21st consecutive playoff spot on April 9, 2018 with a win over the Sacramento Kings in their last home game of the season. They finished the regular season with 47–35, which clinched the 7th seed. In the playoffs, the Spurs faced the second seeded and eventual NBA champion Golden State Warriors, the team that swept them in last season's Western Conference Finals, in the First Round, and lost in five games.

Kawhi Leonard played a career-low nine games this year due to a quad injury. Tragedy struck the team during the playoffs when head coach Gregg Popovich's wife Erin died. Assistant Ettore Messina took over for the rest of the season. On July 16, 2018, Kawhi was traded to the Toronto Raptors.

This was also Tony Parker's last season with Spurs. After 17 years with the team, he signed with the Charlotte Hornets. This leaves Manu Ginobili as the only active member of the Spurs "Big Three" left.
