A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:

• Larry Brown won the 1,000th game of his career Friday, joining Lenny Wilkens (1,332), Don Nelson (1,190) and Pat Riley (1,120) as coaches who have won 1,000 NBA games.

However, Brown's highest win total for any NBA team is 255 for the 76ers, a mark that would rank him 44th on the list of most wins for one team by a coach.

Brown's win total by NBA team: 76ers 255, Pacers 190, Spurs 153, Nuggets 126, Pistons 108, Nets 91, Clippers 64, Knicks 13.
