Tim Duncan Hits The Game-Winner To Beat The Hawks

Tim Duncan Game Winner

Tim Duncan struggled with his shot earlier this year. He’s only shooting 42.5 percent from the field this season, which would be a career low by almost 60 percent if it persisted throughout the year. But The Big Fundamental culminated his dominant night — 23 points and 21 rebounds — by hitting the game-winning shot from the elbow.

Within the last minute, Jeff Teague nailed a step-back three-pointer, after Paul Millsap did the same. But with the score knotted at 100, Duncan curled off a pin down screen and dropped this beauty through the bucket.

Duncan was 10-of-15 from the field for his 23 points, and the Spurs squeezed out a 102-100 victory against the visiting Hawks.

Just a reminder of how much Duncan struggled earlier this year, and how much he’s turned it on over the last couple weeks.
