The Spurs sprang into their 2021-2022 season with a 123-97 win over the Orlando Magic that reverberated throughout San Antonio. 

The night ended with seven Spurs scoring double digits and a city of fans looking forward to a young, energetic season. The excitement that rumbled in AT&T Center reflected online, where diehards live tweeted their quick reactions and memes. 

"THE SPURS ARE GOING TO THE NBA FINALS," @VivianeLynne's tweet says. 

She wasn't alone. The win had San Antonio in the best mood possible. The fan base has been beleaguered by missing the playoffs and losing veteran players. Wednesday's victory comes just days after a USA Today writer called the Spurs the "least watchable team" in the NBA . 

The Spurs will play the Denver Nuggets on Friday.
