Video: Tim Duncan knocks down buzzer beating corner 3-pointer


Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee, with the benefit of a slight push, created enough space to receive Ty Lawson’s lob pass. The result: A difficult dunk, under duress.

The victim of such a visceral display of athleticism? Tim Duncan, whose been named to 13 All-Defensive teams in his career.

On the ensuing possession, with 10.4 seconds remaining, Duncan situated himself in the left corner to allow Tony Parker a larger driving angle to the hoop on the pick-and-roll.

The Nuggets switched the screen, perhaps unintentionally, leaving center Timofey Mozgov to guard Parker on the perimeter. The penetration of Parker drew the attention of McGee and Andre Iguodala, leaving Duncan, whose last 3-point make came on March 10, 2010, in the corner unsupervised.

Parker deftly delivered the ball to Duncan, giving him plenty of time to convert his first 3-pointer of the season prior to the first half buzzer.

Spurs forward Stephen Jackson admitted postgame, in what may be consolation to the Nuggets defense, that Duncan has beaten him in a 3-point contest.
