20. San Antonio Spurs

Despite their high and low moments in the season thus far, the San Antonio Spurs appear on a collision course to make the play-in tournament and will have at least a shot to make a return to the postseason after missing it last season.

The good news is that the Spurs did have some encouraging signs from this team’s young core. They have a strong foundation as they continue their rebound heading into the offseason and will have room to navigate into the offseason with cap space.

It’s tough to predict how the Spurs’ roster will look next season, but odds are that this team will be improved and a force once again in the Western Conference. You have to trust Gregg Popovich and this organization.
