Wednesday night in California’s capital city, the Pacers looked to be on their way to another dismal road loss but came back from a 22-point deficit with a spirited effort in the final 15 minutes to beat the Sacramento Kings, 106-100. The victory, the Pacers’ seventh in their last eight games, is Nate McMillan’s 500th as a head coach. He joins Gregg Popovich, Doc Rivers and Rick Carlisle as the only active NBA coaches with 500 or more coaching wins.
“(500 wins) is just a blessing, it really is,” McMillan said. “When I started coaching in the NBA I started as assistant and never really thought about being a head coach. And to have the opportunity to be a part of this league this long, and to win 500 games in the NBA is really a blessing. It was great the way we won this game. We showed that we could be road tough. I’ll certainly take the win.”
