Old Man Riverwalk has done something only two other players in NBA history have done: win 1,000 games.

Tim Duncan reached the milestone last night in an 88-86 win over the Utah Jazz. And, like all-things Spurs, he couldn't have done it without his teammates. 

The San Antonio Express-News reports that Kawhi Leonard sunk a go-ahead jumper with just seconds left in the game to clinch the victory while Duncan watched from the bench.

Duncan joins NBA royalty Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who won 1.074 games, and Robert Parish, who won 1,014 games.
