Six of NBA's top 25 all-time leading scorers are active (Kobe, Dirk, KG, Pierce, Duncan, LeBron). We're in a strong era of the 68-yr league

Fabian Garcia

Scola: "La chance de jugar con Duncan es difícil de pasar por alto"; basquetplus.com/articulo/la-ch… #NBA http://t.co/ObRwR9Bhn4

Joe Cowley

Jimmy Butler said it best yesterday: "Stars play heavy minutes." Always have. MJ, Pippen, Zeke, Duncan as a youngster. Comes with the job.

Frank Isola

Only in today's NBA are coaches criticized for playing their best players big minutes. Check out Jordan, Ewing, Stockton, Malone, Duncan.

Dan McCarney

Another fun Duncan fact: His 30.3 defensive rebound percentage is a career high. For comparison, Kareem was at 14.2 pct at 38.

Dan McCarney

Fun fact: Spurs finished third or better in defensive efficiency in each of Duncan's first 11 seasons, including five 1sts.

Dan McCarney

Duncan still ranking among the league's elite defenders, for the 18th year in a row.

Dan McCarney

Duncan's defensive numbers are just phenomenal so far. Fifth in def. rebound pct, seven in block pct. Seventh-lowest FG pct at rim... (1/2)

The evolution... RT @Chris_Itz1: And here are Tim Duncan's heat maps from 2001-2014. Maps via @bball_ref pic.twitter.com/IiITmm0obx

Mike Monroe

No backup PG? No problem for #Spurs with Duncan filling in and filling box score, occasionally from the point bit.ly/1yHRrJR

Tas Melas

Tim Duncan was 1 block and 2 steals away from a 5x5 Saturday night: 7 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists, 4 blocks, 3 steals (38 years.)

Paul Garcia

With 8 minutes left in the 2Q vs. the Nets, the Spurs had a play that took 7 passes before Duncan made an open mid-range jumper. Seven...

Devin Kharpertian

38-year-old Tim Duncan still doing new things: tonight his first game ever with 10 boards, 7 assists, 4 blocks, 3 steals, & no turnovers.

Dan McCarney

No steals or blocks this half for Duncan though, so basically why are any of us paying any attention? (Current line: 7/10/7/3/4)

Quixem Ramirez

Triple double alert: Duncan has 7 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists.

Mike Monroe

Tim Duncan exits with 4:52 left in 3rd ... he's got 7 pts., 7 assists, 10 RB

Quixem Ramirez

Anything you can do Tim Duncan can do better.

Quixem Ramirez

Tim Duncan, defying his age: 6 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 blocks, 3 steals. And it’s only halftime.

Dan McCarney

Halftime: Spurs 51, Brooklyn 36. Parker with 14, Leonard with 13, Duncan with 6/7/5/3/4. Brooklyn shooting 34.1 percent.

Julian Mozo

#NBA Es notable lo que hace Duncan en silencio: 5 rebotes, 4 tapas, 4 puntos y 3 asistencias, dos cruzando la mitad de cancha.

Dan McCarney

Already just the sixth game of Duncan's career, including PS, with at least 5/5/5/3/4. There is 27 minutes left.

Dan McCarney

Duncan with his fifth assist, a little generous, but he got Leonard going down court for the layup, and 1. 6/7/5/3/4

Devin Kharpertian

Tim Duncan has 6 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 blocks, and 3 steals. We’re 18 minutes in.

Dan McCarney

But then Duncan bricks a wide open elbow J, so bench him I guess.

Dan McCarney

Shorted him a steal, my fault. So that's 6/6/4/3/4. Tim Duncan y'all.

Dan McCarney

Duncan picks up a couple of blocked shots, so that's 6/6/4/2/4 in 14 minutes.

Devin Kharpertian

Tim Duncan has four assists already. No one on the Nets has more than three.

Dan McCarney

Duncan snap pass to BAYNES for the dunk, that's four assists and the run is 10 unanswered.

Dan McCarney

That's in 10 minutes of playing time for Duncan, BTW.

Dan McCarney

Parker with 11/4, Duncan doing it all with 4/5/3/2/2

Tim Bontemps

Spurs have opened the second quarter with an 8-0 run, and now lead 33-18. Duncan dominating inside.

Tim Bontemps

Tim Duncan is still a terrific defensive player. Just stoned Mason Plumlee at the rim twice.

Dan McCarney

Seem to remember now a Duncan outlet that magically curved like 10 feet in the air before finding intended target. But that was good.

Dan McCarney

Duncan's more of a Favre when it comes to outlets. Generally excellent, but always a high chance it's going to end up very, very badly.

Dan McCarney

Duncan had pretty much no margin of error on that one. Perfect pass.

Steve Popper

They let Duncan pick the music? RT @Stefan Bondy: This game is sometimes being played against the backdrop of 70s highlight reel music.

Dan McCarney

Maybe the best QB outlet I've seen Duncan throw in 2 plus years on the gig. Long, looping pass right over Teletovic to Leonard for the layup

Quixem Ramirez

Tim Duncan leads the NBA in touchdowns and it isn't even close.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets 1 for their last 10. Point Duncan hits Diaw for a banker. Spurs by 10.

Rod Boone

Not sure why MIrza opens up guarding Tim Duncan. It will be a LONG night if that's the plan.

Tim Bontemps

It says a lot about the Spurs that during starting lineup intros Tim Duncan is announced first and Boris Diaw is announced last night.

Stefan Bondy

Tonight is battle of the comic book nerds: Duncan (The Punisher) vs Lopez (Batman). ....

Tim Bontemps

Kevin Garnett may not be playing tonight but Tim Duncan is. instagram.com/p/vuMSq9s_1K/

Adi Joseph

The low-point of the Duncan-era Spurs probably was 2010-11 (the Grizzlies upset). ... And they won 61 games that year, most in the West.

Mike Mazzeo

The #Nets did beat the #Spurs at home last season -- the Spurs did not play Duncan, Ginobili, Parker or Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, though

Jeff McDonald

Austin Daye up to 10 and 10. He's basically Tim Duncan.

Mike Monroe

Enjoy when Tim Duncan jumps into coach confab on court during time outs ... always means game has long been decided; #Spurs up 25 in 4th
