38-year-old Tim Duncan becomes second oldest player ever to record triple-double

On this sort of form, he could go on and break the record.

Tim Duncan led San Antonio Spurs to a superb victory tonight as they quashed the Memphis Grizzlies' 22-game home winning streak with a 107-101 win.

And their 38-year-old star, Duncan, was right at the heart of it with a special triple-double of points, assists and rebounds to make him the second oldest player in NBA history to record the feat.

Karl Malone is currently the oldest player to have ever hit double digits on all three performance indicators when he did it at 40 with the LA Lakers against... San Antonio Spurs.

Just last year, Duncan became the oldest player to hit 20-20, when he accrued 21 rebounds and 23 points, hitting the game-winner against Atlanta Hawks.

On this form though, you wouldn't put it past the ageless forward to keep going and maybe overtake Malone in two years' time for the triple-double record.

Here was the moment that his offensive rebound secured another piece of history for him.
