06:02 PM ET 11.26 | With averages of 22.0 points, 12.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.3 blocks in the previous week, in which the San Antonio Spurs went 3-1, Tim Duncan nabbed his 21st Western Conference Player of the Week award. The accolade is his first such award since 2009. Not only did Duncan handle the extra workload created by the injuries to forwards Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Jackson but he was remarkably efficient in doing so, making 50 percent of his 68 field goal attempts.

He deserves it, he's still so good. He should have been an all-star last year.

Because he never relied on speed or athleticism, his age hasnt slowed his game down...can still defend with the best of em and his post moves are timeless. Always a fan of TIMMY
