Tim Duncan Just Keeps Winning Games

Tim Duncan keeps winning basketball games for the San Antonio Spurs. In fact, after beating the New York Knicks, no one has ever won more for a single team than the legendary power forward. Elias Sports Bureau reports via ESPN.com:

Tim Duncan scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Spurs’ 94-84 victory over the Knicks on Monday. Duncan has 954 regular-season wins with the Spurs, passing John Stockton (953 with Jazz) for the most victories by a player with one team in NBA history. Rounding out the top three is Stockton’s teammate Karl Malone, who had 919 wins during his tenure with Utah.

Duncan has a 954-381 (.715) regular-season record with the Spurs. Among the 10 players with at least 700 wins with one team, only one has a higher winning percentage with that team: Duncan’s teammate Tony Parker. With Monday’s win, Parker improved to 728-284 (.719) in his Spurs career.

This milestone came just a few days after Duncan was a part of the trio to win the most games with one team. He, Manu Ginobili and Parker have combined to notch 541 wins as a group, according to NBA on ESPN.

In addition to all that, according to Basketball-Refernece.com, Duncan has the fourth-most wins (151) in playoff history behind Derek Fisher (161), Robert Horry (155) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (154). All three of those players suited up for more than one team, so Duncan has that record too. And a trip to the Conference Finals could see him take the overall lead. Abdul-Jabbar has the record for overall wins (1,074) with Robert Parish second (1,014) and Duncan third.

So, in sum: Duncan gets wins.
