Tag Archives: NBA team of the decade

Today’s Sports Stat: July 5, 2018

Barring a total collapse in the 2018-19 NBA season, the San Antonio Spurs will end this decade as the NBA’s winningest team in the 2010’s. The Spurs have won 511 games this decade (2009-10 season to 2017-18 season), 45 more victories than the team second on this list, the Oklahoma City Thunder, with 466.

Considering that Golden State and Cleveland played for the NBA title in the last four seasons, it’s a testament to the Spurs’ consistency this decade that they will be known as the NBA’s best team of the 2010’s. The Spurs appeared in the NBA Finals twice this decade (2013 and 2014).

Following are the number of victories each of the 30 NBA teams had the past nine seasons this decade (teams are listed by their current franchise city).
