Duncan Old DNP

Tim Duncan's box score line for Sunday's game had an unusual reason why the future Hall of Famer didn't suit up against the Sixers. The stat sheet simply stated: "DND-OLD."

Coach Gregg Popovich rested Duncan because the Spurs played their third game in three days. Coach Pop also managed to get in a little dig while at it.

Duncan turns 36 this month. Deadspin.com reports Pop has joked around like this before. Robert Horry got a "DNP-Old Age" back in 2007.
