Video: Tim Duncan Lifts San Antonio Spurs to Win Over Clippers In Final Seconds

Tim Duncan is still really good at basketball. He might never stop being good, either. At least that’s how it seems at this point. I mean, he’s playing better than he has in three years, and if he’s picking up steam in his age-36 season….will it ever end?

It’s incredible, really.

As a Minnesota native, I will always engage anyone and everyone in a good ol’ fashioned Tim Duncan vs. Kevin Garnett debate. Who was better in their prime? Garnett had no supporting cast and had better all-around, across-the-board numbers. Duncan was more efficient, a better low-post player, and won playoff games and multiple titles.

He also had a host of good-to-great players alongside him. But for how long did Duncan really play power forward as opposed to sliding over to center?

But that’s a debate for another day. Today, please take note of Duncan’s fantastic line: 34 points (12 of 19 shooting and 10 of 10 from the line), 11 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 blocks. And this against the Clippers’ young, athletic, bouncy frontline of Deandre Jordan and Blake Griffin.

Please enjoy this video clip of his game-winning three-point play with 2.2 seconds on the clock, vaulting the Spurs from a one-point deficit to a 104-102 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers:
