Gregg Popovich is one of the most respected and highly regarded coaches in the league today, and quite possibly, all-time.
He's just the seventh coach in NBA history to reach the milestone and he did it by virtue of the Spurs' 96-91 win over the Dallas Mavericks.
However, Coach Pop was far from pleased with the result. In fact, he was almost angry.
"That was a pathetic performance on the part of the Spurs," Popovich said. "They had some guys out. We had some guys out. But they had a lot more out than we did. I felt we showed a lack of humility, a lack of respect for the opponent. A very pathetic performance at both ends of the court, both in execution and in grunt, fibre and desire. It was an awful performance.
"Oh, and they deserved to win the basketball game," Popovich added. "I forgot to say that."
Kawhi Leonard got San Antonio out of jail with 24 points while Pau Gasol and Patty Mills weighed in with 16 and 17 respectively.
However, the Mavericks, led by Seth Curry, matched them every step of the way and it was far from a comfortable evening for the home side.
The high standards that Coach Pop carries are no doubt hugely responsible for the great success the Spurs have enjoyed over the past two decades.
