Jackson passed Auerbach on most games coached

Lakers Team Report - Fox Sports

Phil Jackson didn't have a legendary playing career, but his coaching career continues to make quite a mark on the NBA.

With the Lakers' victory Tuesday night over the New York Knicks -- whom Jackson represented for almost his entire playing career -- Jackson passed Red Auerbach on the list of all-time games coached in the NBA. Jackson now is 12th in league history, and he's the only coach in NBA history to win more than 70 percent of his games (997-421). On March 25, 2007, Jackson coached career game 1,300 to pass his mentor, longtime Knicks coach Red Holzman.
