Tim Duncan's Greatest NBA Finals Performances

The San Antonio Spurs are set to make their fifth NBA Finals appearance since 1999 and look like they've yet to break a sweat.

Their 37-year-old centerpiece, Tim Duncan, is probably okay with that.

San Antonio needed just 14 games to punch its final ticket, a pair of four-game sweeps over the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies sandwiched around a six-game defeat of the Golden State Warriors.

For some players, a championship appearance represents their greatest chance to write their basketball legacy. For Duncan, though, it's simply an opportunity to punctuate what's already one of the finest careers the league has ever seen.

Duncan's Spurs are a perfect 4-of-4 in the championship series with the big man garnering Finals MVP honors three different times (1999, 2003 and 2005). If the moment has any effect on him this time around, it will only be to elevate his level of play.

In order to create a new entry on this list, though, he'll need some serious spa time in the fountain of youth. After all, his past magical moments have the set the bar at a ridiculously high rate.

In 22 NBA Finals games, he's averaged 22.7 points, 14.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 3.0 blocks. Those numbers aren't built on single-game dominance alone, but here's a look at the five games that did the heaviest lifting.
