Tim Duncan becomes all-time NBA playoffs blocks leader

Tim Duncan blocked Serge Ibaka Thursday night with 2:25 remaining in the second quarter of Game 3 between the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder, and surpassed Hall of Fame Los Angeles Lakers center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most career blocks in NBA playoffs history.

Duncan now has 477 career playoff blocks but on the night had five blocks, 11 points on 31-percent shooting and a playoff career low two rebounds.

It should be noted, however, that playoff blocks were not recorded as a statistical category until the 1973-74 season. Abdul-Jabbar's NBA career began in 1969. Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell, two Hall-of-Fame centers, also played during an era in which blocks were not recorded.
