Innovative Nelson No. 2 on NBA wins list
DALLAS (AP) — Whatever teams and players he’s coached, Don Nelson has always adapted.
Lacking a true point guard in Milwaukee, he came up with the “point forward” position. With no big man in Golden State, he went small and won with the exciting “Run TMC” combination.
Dallas had nothing going for it when he took over. So Nelson got rid of everyone but Michael Finley, gambled on unproven players Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki and nearly wound up the NBA Finals last season.
Innovator, risk-taker and a one-time wearer of the fish tie, Nelson is all that.
He’s also the second-winningest coach in NBA history, having passed Pat Riley
on Monday night, when the Mavericks beat the Toronto Raptors 111 -94.
“I can’t say it’s not special, but it doesn’t mean that much to me at this moment. Maybe when I get old,” the 63-year-old Nelson said, laughing.
The 1,111th victory of his 26-year career came in his 3,000th NBA game as a player or coach.
“They’re all just numbers,” Nelson said Tuesday. “I don’t know what numbers mean any more. It’s winning your next game that’s really only important.”
His next game is in Boston, where the retired No. 19 hanging from the rafters honors his playing career.
Nelson spent ll of his 14 seasons with the Celtics, excelling as a sixth man on
five championship teams. He even hit the shot that won the 1969 title.
Known mostly for wide-open offenses and a fun-loving personality, Nelson was once considered a defensive guy. In fact, Nellie — as he’s widely known—was the first to use the Hack-a-Shaq defense, prompting O'Neal to call him “a clown” after one particularly abusive outing.
O’Neal was growling again Friday night when the Mavericks sent him to line IO times in the final quarter of a victory over the Lakers in Los Angeles. O’Neal missed seven.
“He’s a Hall of Fame coach and it’s great to play for him,” said Nash, who has gone from third-stringer in Phoenix to two-time All-Star under Nelson.
Popovich signs contract extension
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has signed a multiyear contract extension.
‘ The agreement announced Tuesday extends Popovich’s contract through the 2007-08 season.
A spokesman for the Spurs declined to release additional details.
“I am very fortunate to have a group of players and a coaching staff that are quite special,” said Popovich, who also serves as the team’s executive vice president of basketball operations. “I look forward to more enjoyable years in this wonderful city.” During his seven seasons as

then followed with the loss to Philadelphia.
“Coming off three 5-11 seasons, sometimes a little doubt sets in," quarterback Quincy Carter said.
The Cowboys got back on track, and into good postseason position again, with a 27-0 win at Washington on Sunday.
It was their first shutout win since beating the Dolphins on Thanksgiving Day four years ago.
"There was a lot of pressure on them in this game because there was starting to he some negative things here," Parcells said. "No matter how much you’ve won, when you lose two in a row, you’re not winning now.”
