TP, TD, Manu combine for 80 for first time in regulation game

Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili produced a game for the ages in the Spurs’ 97-91 victory over Dallas.

The good folks at STATS LLC did some late checking at deadline in their extensive database and found that the 80 combined points that Parker, Ginobili and Duncan scored against the Mavericks was the first time the trio had scored at least 80 points in a regulation game.

It was the fifth time that Parker, Ginobili and Duncan have combined for 80 points or more in a game (in games where all three players have played). All of the other previous games were overtime contests.

Here’s a chart for those games.
