The San Antonio Spurs have won their third straight game over the New York Knicks, 94-84 at Madison Square Garden but the significance of the game is one for the record books. Spurs stalwart Tim Duncan posted team and NBA records on this night. Duncan set the record for most wins with a single team, eclipsing John Stockton’s 953 and looks to extend that record another 60 or more games this season, which should put it out of reach for a considerable time what with NBA players switching teams every two to four years. Duncan will be breaking his own record every time he steps on the floor.
Thus far this year, Duncan has passed Alex English to move into 16th place All Time scoring, moved into 8th in Career Rebounding passing Nate Thurmond then two days later passed Patrick Ewing to move into 6th place career blocks. He passed Moses Malone in April to move into 11th place NBA All Time career games and moved into 14th place passing Kevin Garnett in the NBA All Time Scoring list.
The Spurs take on the Wizards tomorrow night before heading back to the Alamo City for a game against the Charlotte Hornets. Tickets for both games are still available so be sure to get out and support your Spurs either on the road or at home!
