Tim Duncan put on a clinic in a win over the Mavericks on Thursday, scoring 28 points with 19 boards, two assists and one block in 36 minutes.
He rested the second half of a back-to-back set on Tuesday and needless to say he looked like an All-Star in the win. It was just the second time since January 12 that he played at least 36 minutes and the Spurs needed every bit of it. They have three more back-to-back sets on the season with their next one coming up on March 31. Coach Pop could still sit Duncan even in a game that isn't in a back-to-back set, too.
