25 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists, and 4 blocks all came from a 36-year old man in the NBA on Wednesday evening. Who was that man, San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan, as Duncan guided the Spurs in the fourth quarter to a 104-93 victory in the AT&T Center. “He was unbelievable,” said Spurs forward Tiago Splitter (17 points) after the game. “He’s in great shape and down the stretch we went through him,” added Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. Defending an offensive oriented team like the Warriors was no easy task, but Popovich felt the Spurs’ defense did their job. “They are a very difficult team to guard,” said Popovich of the Warriors. “I thought our defense was the best defense we’ve played in a couple of weeks.” Outside of Duncan and Splitter, the Spurs knew they were going to need help off of the bench. Rookie Nando De Colo and the Spurs’ bench provided the extra support as the Spurs contained the Warriors. Here are five key points from the game. 1.      Duncan
