The 2012–13 San Antonio Spurs season was the 46th season of the franchise, 40th in San Antonio and 37th in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Spurs finished the regular season with a 58–24 record as the 2nd seed in the Western Conference.

In the playoffs, the Spurs swept the Los Angeles Lakers in the First Round in four games, defeated the Golden State Warriors in the Semifinals in six games, and swept the Memphis Grizzlies in the Conference Finals in four games, advancing to the NBA Finals for the fifth time in franchise history since 2007, but came up short of a fifth title, losing to the Miami Heat in a tough seven-game series, who would hand them their very first defeat in the NBA Finals.
