April 08, 2010|By Sports Digest

Don Nelson set the NBA career record for victories in the Golden State Warriors' 116-107 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, earning No. 1,333 to surpass Lenny Wilkens. Nelson is 1,333-1,061 in 31 seasons on the bench. "It's just such a neat feeling," Nelson said. "This is probably why we end up coaching, for moments like this."
