Tim Duncan passes Magic Johnson for playoff double-double record

More on Game 4: SA 107, MIA 86 | Depth key for San Antonio | Court Vision

Future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan made history in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Thursday. As well as passing Kareem Abdul-Jabaar's all-time record for playoff minutes, he overtook Magic Johnson for the most double-doubles in postseason history. With 10 points and 11 rebounds, he recorded his 158th double-double.

Notoriously unconcerned with individual accomplishments, the San Antonio Spurs big man was nevertheless asked if he could appreciate the milestones, given that they happened in a 107-86 victory against the Miami Heat.

"I can appreciate you saying the names and having passed them in anything," Duncan said. "It's an honor to be in that position. Having won helps, obviously, but the focus is winning one more and once that one more is done, then I can look back and say, 'Hey, that's truly an honor.' "
