The 2014–15 San Antonio Spurs season was the 48th season of the franchise, 39th in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and 42nd in the San Antonio area.[1] The Spurs were the defending NBA Champions, having defeated the Miami Heat in the 2014 NBA Finals 4 games to 1 and winning their fifth NBA championship, and made Tim Duncan the second player in NBA history to win championships in 3 different decades (The first being John Salley). On April 3, 2015 after their victory over the Denver Nuggets they clinched a 50+ win season for the 16th consecutive season; the Spurs started the season slow and exceeded their previous season of 20 losses, but managed an eleven-game winning streak within the last 12 games and finished 55-27, finishing third in the Southwest on a tie breaker to the Memphis Grizzlies.

In the playoffs, the Spurs faced the Los Angeles Clippers in the First Round; the Spurs' season would end in a Game 7 loss, after Chris Paul made a layup with 1 second on the clock and Matt Barnes blocking a desperate final inbound pass as time expired, losing 109–111. It was the first time since 2011 where the Spurs were eliminated in the first round, where they were eliminated by the 8th-seeded Memphis Grizzlies in a shocking upset; the team hired former WNBA point guard Becky Hammon as an assistant head coach, making her the first full-time female assistant coach in the NBA.
