For just the third time in Gregg Popovich’s coaching career, his team erased a 14-point 4th quarter deficit. That wasn’t the history that mattered.
The Spurs’ 95-93 victory over the Indiana Pacers was Popovich’s 1,000th win of his career. He’s reached the number faster than everyone not named Phil Jackson or Pat Riley.

As the wins pile up, Woj points out something even more special about Popovich’s accomplishment.
Someone else will reach 1,000 coaching victories in the NBA, but he will not do it with one team like Gregg Popovich has done.

Congrats to Coach Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs on the accomplishment. We probably care more than he does.
