Marco Belinelli hit a game-winning mid-range jumper to lift San Antonio to a 95-93 road victory over Indiana on Monday, delivering the 1,000th victory of coach Gregg Popovich's career

With the score tied at 93 and under 10 seconds remaining, Kawhi Leonard drove to his right against David West from the top of the key. As he entered the basket area, Leonard pulled up his dribble and consequently drew in a second defender. With Indiana's defense diving to help on Tim Duncan at the left block, Leonard opted to rifle a pass along the baseline to Belinelli in the left corner. 

Receiving the pass with five seconds to go, Belinelli calmly pump-faked to create a clean look and then stepped into a 16-footer, which swished through with 2.1 seconds left. 

Pacers guard George Hill was unable to connect on a potential game-winning three-point attempt on the other end.

Belinelli finished with 12 points and four assists. Tony Parker led the Spurs with a game-high 19 points and six assists.

Rodney Stuckey led the Pacers with 18 points, three rebounds and three assists. C.J. Miles added 13 points and two rebounds.

San Antonio improved to 33-19. Indiana fell to 20-33.
