SAN ANTONIO — For the first time in the 2019-20 season, the Spurs are below .500. After losing to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, the Silver and Black have a 5-6 record. The loss was the team's third in a row and fifth in their last six games.

The struggles come during a time of celebration for San Antonio, as the Spurs officially retired Tony Parker's jersey in a postgame ceremony on Monday. Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and other Spurs icons were on hand, reminding fans of better times as the Spurs lost to the Memphis Grizzlies.
