San Antonio Spurs big man Tim Duncan threw down a dunk over Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka during the second quarter of a game between the Western Conference rivals at the AT&T Center on Thursday night. The slam over the 2012 Defensive Player of the Year runner-up was set up by All-Star guard Tony Parker, who threaded a bounce pass to a cutting Duncan, who reverse pivoted before elevating for the one-hand dunk.

The dunk was the exclamation mark on a highlight-packed half for Duncan, who scored 12 points, grabbed five rebounds, blocked three shots and dished an assist during an active first half. Duncan also had a clean block of a Kevin Durant dunk attempt and a touchdown pass to forward Kawhi Leonard. Official NBA records claim that the surefire future first-ballot Hall of Famer is 36-years-old, but I think we all know better.
