Dejounte Murray tallied his 6th triple-double of the season,pushing him past The Admiral David Robinson and Johnny Moore who both had five in a season during their respective tenures with the Spurs.

Last night’s victory brings head coach Gregg Popovich one win closer to the top of the all-time regular season wins list.

Pop (and the Spurs) needs fourteen more wins to pass both Don Nelson, and only eleven to pass Lenny Wilkins for the second spot. But second place is not the goal here.

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 on Thursday when the Spurs finish this road trip with a final night in Los Angeles as the good guys face LeBron James and the Lakers.

Go Spurs Go!
