Spurs coach Gregg Popovich gets 1,336th win to break Don Nelson's all-time NBA wins record

Gregg Popovich became the all-time winningest head coach in the NBA with 1,336 victories.

Popovich surpassed Don Nelson, who previously held the record for most wins in NBA history, with the San Antonio Spurs' 104-102 win over the Utah Jazz on Friday night.

"Very happy for Pop," longtime Spurs point guard Tony Parker told ESPN. "Very happy. That is a helluva achievement. Well-deserved. That shows his hard work ethic and longevity."

Popovich, 73, is in his 26th season with the Spurs, the longest tenure of any head coach in all four of the U.
