Duncan wants to win his fifth NBA championship.
Tim Duncan has never been flashy, and he played typical Duncan-esque basketball against Memphis.
Though the 16-year veteran only managed six points and 10 rebounds in Game 1, San Antonio waxed the Grizzlies by 22.
But in two overtime games and a series clincher, Duncan shined by, well, being the Big Fundamental. He scored 56 boring points, snared 27 ho-hum rebounds and swatted 10 emotionless shots en route to earning his fifth NBA Finals appearance.
Duncan's main flaw was committing five fouls in both Games 2 and 3, which allowed the Grizzlies to recover late in the game to force overtime.
Of course, there was the whole "make the first five-plus points in overtime" thing in both contests, but how meaningless is that?
Wait, what's that? It's really important? Oh, OK.
