At the suspension of play, the Spurs owned a 27-36 record, good for a .429 winning percentage. 

Once the seeding games have been played for each of the 22 teams continuing the season, the seven top squads in each conference will stamp their ticket to the NBA Playoffs, while the teams with the eighth and ninth-highest winning percentages in a given conference play each other in a virtual play-in tournament if they are still separated by four or fewer games. 

The NBA Finals, which typically conclude sometime in mid-June, are scheduled to end no later than Oct. 13 this year after the season was derailed by the coronavirus pandemic.
