San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan picked up the 155th playoff win of his career with Sunday's 116-95 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, tying former teammate Robert Horry for second place on the NBA's all-time playoff wins list for an individual player, per NBA.com/Stats.

Duncan only logged 19 minutes in Sunday's game as his Spurs completed a sweep of the injury-marred Grizzlies, contributing seven points, two rebounds, two assists and three blocks in the easy win.

While effective on the defensive end, the 40-year-old big man had a modest series from a statistical standpoint, averaging 5.8 points, 6.3 boards, 2.0 assists and 2.0 blocks over just 20.3 minutes per game.

In addition to co-owning the No. 2 spot on the all-time playoff wins list, Duncan passed Horry to take sole possession of second place on the playoff appearances list, with the former now having 245 to the latter's 244, per NBA History.

Derek Fisher owns the records for wins (161) and games (259), but it's possible Duncan could break both by the end of the postseason.

In order to break the wins record, Duncan either needs to reach the NBA Finals or lose in the Western Conference Finals in seven games.

As for the games record, he'll need the Spurs to reach the Finals, though he could move into a tie if both San Antonio's upcoming series and the conference finals go to seven games.
