Last night San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan grabbed eight rebounds in a 86-84 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. With those eight boards, Duncan passed Charles Barkley on the NBA's career rebounding list.
Barkley finished his career with 12,546 boards and Duncan now has 12,552 boards moving TD into 17th place. In 16th place is Bob Pettit with 12,849 rebounds. TD will need 298 rebounds to pass Pettit.
One other notable milestone to keep an eye on is the scoring race between Duncan and Paul Pierce on the NBA's career scoring list. Duncan recorded 20 points last night versus the Thunder which moved him into 25th on the list with 22,602 points. Pierce has 22,591 points. This race will surely move around between the two players throughout the season.
