George Karl’s historic win

Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl became only the 7th NBA coach to win 1,000 wins. Karl reached this milestone after beating the Toronto Raptors 123-116 is a high-scoring affair on Friday. Small Foward Al Harrington scored 31 points to lead Denver, and the win was surely an emotional one for Karl, as he overcame throat cancer, his second bout with the disease, and returned this year after missing last year’s playoffs. Karl joins Lakers coach Phil Jackson, Charlotte Bobcats coach Larry Brown, and Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan as the only active coaches with 1,000 wins.
