Tim Duncan has been on a roll this season leading the San Antonio Spurs in Tony Parker's absence and breaking records left and right these last two years. He's been climbing up lists in various categories and cementing his legacy as one of the best big men in the history of the NBA. Duncan is 14th in all time rebounds and only needs 16 to pass his former rival, Shaquille O'Neal. Duncan is at 13,084 rebounds entering tonight's game versus the Warriors while O'Neal is in 13th with 13,099 rebounds for all time in the NBA. With the Spurs playing tonight, it may be a safe bet Duncan gets close to the record during the game. The Warriors give up 43rpg to their opponents in a game and that may help Duncan surpass his average of 9.8rpg this game. Duncan has been averaging 11rpg the last four games he's played in and has been throwing vintage performances to make up for what the team has lost with Parker's injury. Tim Duncan had a team-high 19 rebounds against the Dallas Mavericks who give up an average of 45rpg, a statistic that's pretty close to the Golden State Warriors' average. Duncan will most likely pass Shaq in the next two games that will be played in San Antonio and that'll give the home fans to show Duncan the proper reaction for passing one of the most dominant big men of his time in O'Neal. After the Spurs play the Warriors, they'll meet the Utah Jazz on Friday night.
