San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich made history on Saturday night in Denver, winning his 1,413th NBA game between the regular season and playoffs to become the winningest coach in NBA history. He moved past the legendary Lenny Wilkens, who is in the Hall of Fame as both a player and coach, in the process.
The win couldn't have come in more fitting fashion for Popovich, who guided his No. 7 seeded Spurs to an upset victory over the No. 2 seed Nuggets, 101-96. It was a bit of a strange game, as the Spurs managed to hold off a cold-shooting Nuggets team down the stretch through a mix of luck and timely shot-making.
