One of the crazier streaks in NBA history is officially over with the San Antonio Spurs’ loss to the L.A. Clippers on Tuesday night.

The Spurs won’t be reaching 50 wins this year which will be the first time in 18 years that won’t happen.

The Spurs were also on pace for fifty wins during the 1998-99 season but that season was shortened down to 50 games because of a lockout. If that season would have had the full 82 games, and they would have reached 50 wins, which seems likely, this streak would have been 20 years.

The Spurs currently have a record of 45-33, and with only four games remaining, the most wins they could reach would be 49.

For the Spurs, the most important part is making the playoffs, though, and with a few wins that will be locked up. If they struggle down the stretch and the Denver Nuggets, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Minnesota Timberwolves all have hot finishes to the season there is a chance that they could miss out.

The Spurs currently sit in the fifth position in the Western Conference, but they are only two games above the Denver Nuggets who sit in ninth.

If they are going to make the playoffs and make a run once they get there, it sure seems like it will be without the help of Kawhi Leonard who has only played in nine games this year.

Now there are also trade rumors surrounding the Spurs superstar. On The Jump on ESPN, Brian Windhorst said:

“I have already talked to several NBA general managers. At the end of this season, teams will call the Spurs and inquire about the availability of Kawhi Leonard.”

That is one thing that the Spurs don’t need right now — more controversy surrounding a guy that isn’t available to play for them at this moment.
