INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs' huge fourth-quarter rally helped Gregg Popovich reach the 1,000-win milestone Monday night.

Marco Belinelli's baseline jumper with 2.1 seconds left capped San Antonio's 95-93 victory at Indiana.

Popovich became the ninth coach with 1,000th regular-season wins and became the third-fastest to achieve the feat. He also joined former Utah coach Jerry Sloan as the only coaches in league history to win 1,000 games with one team.

Tony Parker led the Spurs with 19 points. Tim Duncan had 15.
