Statistically, aesthetically, dramatically — Tim Duncan did it every which way last night. If there was a better old-man game, I wasn’t around for it. Were you?
The Spurs were literally moments from a title on Tuesday, only to see their lead, then their series lead, then Game 7 slip away. Losing an epic championship series is hard for any team, but for the Spurs — a franchise so accustomed to winning — it must be particularly tough. Bummer.
On this morning’s edition of
Worst First Take, Bayless was in unusually stupid form — and that’s saying something. One of the daily topics brought up on the show was, “Should Gregg Popovich rest his star players tonight in Game 6?”

Welcome to The Daily Yam, bringing you the top play from the night before, anything else you might have missed, and what to look forward to today.

Tim Duncan is 36, and will be 37 in less than a month. In general human years: not very old. In basketball player years: pretty damn old. So when he plays a game like he did last night against the Clippers (34 points, 11 rebounds in a 104-102 win) and does this at the end, it’s tempting to say he’s “turned back the clock.” We’ve done it ourselves. But upon further review, we’re not sure that’s the right term. More on that after the jump.
March Madness is almost officially here. No, I don’t count conference championships as part of March Madness. We got a taste of the craziness to come, though, thanks to the Big East Championship between Syracuse and Louisville. Get caught up on that, plus a look at Tim Duncan’s resurgence in the absence of Tony Parker.
Tim Duncan has long been referred to as “Groundhog Day,” a nickname gifted him by Charles Barkley because his game is the same thing every day like the Bill Murray film of the same name. With today actually being Groundhog Day, it only seems right that we honor Duncan’s model of consistency.
