NBA: Record crowd at the Alamodome in San Antonio against the Warriors

The San Antonio Spurs set an NBA regular season game attendance record in a game against the Golden State Warriors on Friday night at the Alamodome.

Spurs announced that they had sold 63,592 tickets for the game, and the record was confirmed by the league.

The locals unfortunately lost 144-113 in front of theirs.

The previous mark was set at the Georgia Dome when Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls took on the Atlanta Hawks in 1998.

The all-time league record was set during the 2010 All-Star Game at the home of the Dallas Cowboys, which was attended by no less than 108,713 fans.

The Spurs have played in San Antonio since 1973 and called the AT&T Center their home in 2002. The organization, however, requested a contract amendment that binds it to the amphitheater in order to play a meeting at their old Alamodome stadium, where they have won the title in 1999, as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.

The Warriors started the game strong, with Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins joining forces in a 9-0 surge to lead 17-4.

They ended the game with 15 and 16 points respectively, while Jordan Poole led the charge with 25 points. Donte DiVincenzo added 22.

On the other side, Tre Jones provided 21 points.
