The San Antonio Spurs aren’t easily spooked.

Sitting at 54-16 (best record in NBA), they look poised to challenge for an NBA championship once again.

But the team of seasoned NBA veterans recently faced their scariest foe yet: ghosts.

Ahead of their game against the Golden State warriors on March 22, the Spurs stayed at the Berkeley Claremont Hotel, which is notorious for ghosts haunting guests.

Whether you believe in the paranormal or not, Spurs power forward Jeff Ayres told Spurs Nation about the team’s freaky encounter.

“You get in at whatever time. I took my room key. I could hear stuff in the hallway, like people in their rooms," Ayres said. "So I’m thinking people are watching TV or whatever. So I get to my door, and my key doesn’t work, but it sounds like there’s somebody in my room.

"Like I hear a little baby, not crying but making noise. I’m like, ‘What the heck?’ I keep trying my key and it doesn’t work. So I go downstairs to get a new key, and I tell them (somebody’s in the room).

Ayres said a front desk worker called his room, but nobody answered.

"They’re like, ‘We can get you a new key and send you up with security and make sure nobody’s there, because there shouldn’t be anybody in there.’

"Then they’re like, ‘We’ll just get you a new room.’ It was the creepiest thing. I heard a couple of other guys heard babies in the hallway, kids running down the hallway. Creepy. I really heard voices and a baby in the room, and there wasn’t anybody in there. It was crazy.”

It doesn't appear the "ghosts" had an impact on the Spurs' sleeping patterns.

They went on to beat Golden State 99 - 90.
