Duncan Comes Through in the Crunch

By Daniel Strickland on February 4, 2006.

This is pretty amusing: “The Nestle Crunch Time Stat was designed by the NBA and Nestle to provide an innovative way to measure ‘Crunch Time’ performances.”

I don’t know what the people over at Nestle know about basketball, but Tim Duncan definitely came through in the crunch against the Warriors last night.

With the Spurs up one and the shot clock winding down, Tim Duncan took a pass from Tony Parker, dribbled once and launched a jumper in traffic from just inside the free-throw line. Nothing but net; Spurs up three with 1:44 left. The Warriors made it a one-point game again, but Duncan’s two free throws with 10.2 seconds left closed it out. Duncan earned nine Nestlé Crunch Time points for his efforts.

For what it’s worth, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan are both ranked in the top 15 on the Nestle Crunch Time leader board, along with three Dallas Mavericks and two Phoenix Suns.
