Tim Duncan Not Worried About His Age
Tim Duncan wore a green flannel shirt, non-designer jeans and high-top sneakers while sitting atop a lime exercise ball after the San Antonio Spurs’ victory late Saturday. At 37, Tim Duncan is old by NBA standards. On the court, however, he looks anything but.
Duncan scored seven of his 24 points in overtime while adding 10 rebounds, five assists and two blocks to spark the Spurs to a 104-93 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals. With the Spurs now owning a commanding 3-0 lead in the series, Duncan is one more victory away from reaching his fifth NBA Finals and first since 2007.
“I’m very focused on another opportunity to make it to another championship and trying to win,” Duncan said. “I’m not worried about how old I am or whatever it may be.
“…We’ve been counted out for a bunch of years and we haven’t been there in forever. It would mean a lot. We obviously have one more game to win to get to that point, but I’m excited about the opportunity to get there.”
