As first reported earlier this month here at Project Spurs, we been keeping an eye on San Antonio Spurs’ head coach Gregg Popovich and forward Tim Duncan reaching personal milestones in their NBA careers. Here are a couple of past updates which you can read here and here.
With the win against the Oklahoma City Thunder Popovich is now sitting at 783 wins. He is currently third in the all-time list of most coaching wins with one team. In first place is former Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan with 1,127 wins and in second place is Boston Celtics’ former coach Red Auerbach who has 795 wins. Popovich still needs 13 more wins to move into second place.
As for Duncan, he picked up three blocks versus the Thunder and with eight more blocks, he will move into the top ten surpassing former NBA player Alonzo Mourning who registered 2,356 blocks. Duncan is currently 11th on the all-time NBA career blocked shots list with 2,349 blocks.
