Golden State coach Don Nelson earned his 1,300th victory Saturday night, with Stephen Jackson scoring 26 points and Corey Maggette adding 25 in the Warriors' 133-120 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Nelson is just the second coach in NBA history to reach the
milestone, joining good friend Lenny Wilkens, who has 1,332 career
wins. The Warriors' fifth victory in seven games was vintage
Nellieball, with his Warriors reeling off their fourth 120-point
game of the month to compensate for their indifferent defense and
Kevin Durant scored 32 points for the Thunder, who have lost
five straight. Russell Westbrook added 31 points and 11 assists,
but Oklahoma City dropped to 3-24 on the road.
