San Antonio Spurs big man Tim Duncan made history on Sunday night. In the third quarter of Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat, he recorded his 157th playoff double-double. That matches the all-time record set by Magic Johnson.

It took Duncan 231 postseason games to reach the mark, and he's closing in on Kareem Abdul-Jabaar's all-time record for playoff minutes. That's some sustained excellence, kiddos.
