Pop is twenty-four wins from the top spot

It took long enough

Is it fair to say that the Spurs make losing look good? For many of us who have waited to see the new look Spurs unleashed, the season comes with hope. If losing is a byproduct of working out the kinks, then the final score ain’t nothing but a number.

Last night’s victory over the Milwaukee Bucks was a shade of what fans have been hoping to see and it was one win closer to head coach Gregg Popovich’s rise to the top of the all-time regular season wins.

Pop needs twenty-four more regular season wins.

It took a series of close games and losses to gain enough momentum to beat the current NBA champs, and it must feel good to turn the tables in less than a week on the same team. Hopefully they can repeat and right the wrong next week against the Dallas Mavericks. Correcting their games this early in the season would help build the confidence of this new look Spurs.

As previously mentioned, Pop has more wins than any other NBA coach in history when combining regular and post season, but now he has an opportunity to own both grand total and regular season win totals.

The next opportunity will take place in Indiana when the Spurs face the Pacers on Monday night.

Go Spurs Go!
