NBA G League to Utilize Final Target Score Scenarios for First Time
AUSTIN (Sept. 1, 2022) – The Austin Spurs today announced the team’s 2022-23 season schedule, which will be split into two parts for the second consecutive season: the 18-game Showcase Cup followed by a 32-game regular season. The 2022-23 Austin Spurs season is presented by SWBC.
Austin will tip off the Showcase Cup with back-to-back home games against the Texas Legends on Friday, Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park. The team will travel to México for the first time to face the México City Capitanes on Friday, Dec. 16 as part of the first-ever NBA G League season played in México.
During the Showcase Cup, teams will be separated into four regional pods and play 16 games against one another in NBA G League markets. The teams with the best winning percentage in each regional pod, along with the next four teams across the league with the best win percentages, will advance to compete for the Showcase Cup. The Showcase Cup will culminate with a single-elimination tournament to crown a champion at the 2022 AT&T NBA G League Winter Showcase from Dec. 19-22.
The Spurs will begin regular season play on Thursday, Dec. 29, hosting the Oklahoma City Blue at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park at 7:30 p.m., as all team records reset following the conclusion of the Showcase Cup. NBA G League Ignite will visit Austin on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. and Friday, Feb. 10 at 7:30 p.m. The Silver and Black will host their final regular season home game at the AT&T Center in San Antonio on Saturday, March 18, taking on the Greensboro Swarm at 7 p.m.
At the conclusion of the regular season, the top six teams in each conference will qualify for the NBA G League Playoffs presented by Google Pixel, followed by the NBA G League Finals presented by YouTube TV in April 2023.
Beginning in the 2022-23 season, games that advance to overtime will be determined by a final target score. The winner of an overtime game during the season will be the first team to reach or surpass the final target score, which will be the tied score after four quarters plus seven. Overtime will be untimed and games will end when a team surpasses the final target score. Additionally, all 31 games at the 2022 AT&T NBA G League Winter Showcase in Las Vegas will utilize a 25-point final target score during an untimed fourth quarter. Under this model, the final target score will be the leading team’s score after three quarters plus 25.
All 30 NBA G League teams, including NBA G League Ignite and the México City Capitanes, will compete in a total of 50 games during the 2022-23 season. No games will be played on Tuesday, Nov. 8 as part of the NBA’s focus on promoting nonpartisan civic engagement on Election Day.
Austin’s promotional and broadcast schedule will be announced at a later date, and single game tickets will go on sale later this month. Season ticket memberships are available now. To learn more, visit austinspurs.com/season-tickets/.
