The Savannah Spirits were a professional basketball team that played for two years in the Continental Basketball Association from 1986 to 1988, amassing a total regular season record of 42 wins and 60 losses for a total of 306.5 points. The Spirits did not qualify for the postseason in their first year in Savannah, Georgia. In their second and final year in Savannah, they were eliminated by the Albany, New York Patroons in the first round, four games to one. After relocating to Tulsa, Oklahoma and changing their name to the Tulsa Fast Breakers, the team won the 1988–89 CBA Championship.

Future late-night talk show host Craig Kilborn served as the team's radio play-by-play announcer. It was the first broadcasting job of his career.
