The two have matched up six times in the regular season with TD winning four and Griffin winning two.

But as the rising forward meets the established veteran tonight, Duncan is showing age is nothing but a number this season averaging 19.3 points and 10.3 rebounds while Griffin is averaging 16.3 points and eight rebounds this season. ESPN took a look at TD's early season production and spoke on what Griffin can learn from "The Big Fundamental."
