A vintage Tim Duncan performance for the San Antonio Spurs see’s them take a one game lead over the Clippers after a dominant 108-92 victory.

Tim Duncan scored 26 points and had 10 rebounds to lead the Spurs to victory over the Clippers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals on Tuesday at AT&T Center.

Manu Ginobili came off the bench for his best game of the playoffs, scoring 22 points in almost 27 minutes.

The Spurs noticeably hit 4-of-8 shots from the 3-point line in the decisive third quarter, but they only outscored L.A. 12-9 from long distance. The thing that really killed the Clippers in the third was the lack of support for Caron Butler, who was 5-for-7 in the quarter. The rest of the team, however was 3-for-9, and Paul and Griffin combined to go 1-for-7.

The Spurs have not lost in 34 days, an April 11 home loss to the LA Lakers. The eight-day layoff the Spurs had after sweeping Utah out of the first round matched the second-longest the Spurs have had in the playoffs since Popovich became the coach in 1998.
