Rudy Gay is not giving up on the chances of the San Antonio Spurs to qualify for the playoffs this season.

“We still have a chance. We can’t let our minds get in offseason mode because we still have some work to do. It’s going to be tough, but that’s what the NBA is all about,” Gay said, per Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News.

The Spurs are 12th in the West with a 27-36 record, four games behind the eighth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies.

San Antonio has not missed the playoffs since 1997.
