Open Thread: Pop is just one win from Pat Riley on the NBA all-time list

And last night he picked up a W against Riley’s former team.


14 is the maximum number of clubs allowable for a golfer. Fourteen days is often referred to as a fortnight. It’s the number of lines in a sonnet. Woodrow Wilson outlined Fourteen Points at the end of World War I, the fourteenth point calling for the creation of the League of Nations.

In the last road game, Patty Mills passed Ben Gordon to become 14th all-time in 3-point shots made coming off the bench.

Although Danny Green won his NBA Championship wearing the number 4, he switched to his preferred 14 at the close of the 2014 season.

And speaking of 2014, it is still the sweetest NBA Championship. . .for any team. . .ever. . . ask anyone. Everyone thinks the 2014 was the greatest NBA Championship of all time. Well, almost everyone. LeBron James might disagree, but I digress.

And last night Pop racked up win #14 on the Pop 25 Countdown against the Los Angeles Lakers. On the way to that W were Patty Mills, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Jakob Poeltl with — you guessed it — 14 points apiece.

We’re counting down the first 25 wins of the 2018-19 season which will elevate Gregg Popovich to 3rd place in wins by an NBA coach. Pop is just one more win from tying former Laker’s head coach Pat Riley for 4th all time, so root on Pop and the Spurs as they continue the home stand this Sunday against the Utah Jazz.

If you are going to the game, be sure to bring a toy to donate and get yourself a Spurs ornament for your Christmas tree (or rearview mirror).
