No word on Duncan, Ginobili or anybody else after logging monster minutes in Wednesday's triple OT epic vs. Memphis.
No mention of Duncan, Manu, Diaw or Green on injury report. But still a lot of time before tip-off, or Pop could dress them & not play them.
The last time Duncan logged as many minutes in one night: 12/09/2008, when he played 50 minutes of a double-OT win at Dallas.
Tim Duncan, 38, played 48 minutes of a triple-OT loss to MEM last night. Rest assured this does not gibe with Pop's rest management plan.
Get this: Spurs are on pace for 54 wins this year, which would be the third worst (!!!) mark in the Tim Duncan era. MY MIND JUST EXPLODED.
Duncan, at age 38, definitely has to get a an All-Star consideration: 15.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.9 steals, 2.3 blocks.
Tim Duncan is now neck in neck with Kawhi (12.3) & Parker (12.3) in shots per game at 12.0 FGA. Duncan's averaging 15.0 points.
Minutes totals from Spurs' first triple-OT game since 1984: Green 52, Duncan 48, Manu 41, Belinelli 43, Diaw 39.
Duncan - 48 mins. Green - 52 mins. Ginobili - 41 mins. Diaw - 39 mins. Belinelli - 43 mins. Just no good options there.
"Big shots made, big shots missed." - Tim Duncan on the loss in 3OT.
Tim Duncan just played 47 minutes in 3OT loss to Grizzlies. Finished with 23 and 16 while inspiring me to hit treadmill for sure tmrw
Duncan is so good he missed that point-blank layup on purpose to get Danny Green that 3-pointer. Ginobili then tried the same thing.
Spurs fall in triple-overtime 117-116 to the Grizzlies. SA is now 17-9 on the season, 0-3 in overtime. Green 25 points, Duncan 23-16-5.
Green, of course, with the 3 after Duncan blows the layup. One-point game.
Duncan strips Gasol...
1:58 left in 3OT, Spurs trail Grizzlies 115-113. Duncan 23 points, 16 bords, 5 dimes. Green 22 points, Manu 21 points, 7 assists. Diaw 17
Duncan up to 45 minutes. Green...51.
Duncan has learned from past mistakes. He timed his shot perfectly making sure not to leave 0.4 seconds on the clock.
Duncan's gonna turn 40 before this game ends.
I've been trying to think of something clever to tweet but all I can think of is: "Tim Duncan."
Classic Duncan fundamentals there on the (turnaround, fading, straight away, insane) bank shot.
Grizz looking at that Duncan shot like… http://t.co/Ew7z9KYAa1
Duncan feels it, gets triple OT started with a make. He's got 23 points
Yea why not a bushel for Tim Duncan http://t.co/YSrsXBMdgJ
Wow, Duncan prayer sends Spurs-Grizzlies to 3rd OT. Pop might rest his starters the rest of 2014 after tonight.
And more playing time, because Duncan is pretty much a cyborg with that shot.
Duncan has played 43 minutes, Manu 38, Danny Green 47. Incredible.
This Spurs-Grizzlies game has been phenomenal. Tim Duncan just sent it into another OT.
I think Tim Duncan made up for his missed free throws.
Tim Duncan just hit a Kobe miss.
That Duncan shot was identical to the one he hit right before Fisher's 0.4 shot. Triple overtime in SA between Spurs/Grizz
Oh my Gosh. Tim Duncan just sent the game in to triple OT
Duncan called bank.
