SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Tim Duncan scored 23 points, grabbed 21 rebounds and hit a go-ahead jumper with 0.4 seconds left Monday, carrying the San Antonio Spurs over Atlanta 102-100.

Duncan's 16-footer off an assist from Manu Ginobili broke a 100-100 tie and the Spurs held on for the win when the Hawks' Paul Millsap missed a desperation jumper at the buzzer.

With his performance, the 37-year-old Duncan became the oldest player in NBA history to record at least 20 points and 20 rebounds in a game.

Boris Diaw netted 16 points and Tony Parker provided 15 with seven assists for Western Conference-leading San Antonio, which improved to 15-3.

Jeff Teague led Atlanta with 19 points and seven assists.

Al Horford (18 points, seven rebounds), DeMarre Carroll (17, eight), Millsap (15, 14), and Louis Williams (10 points) each reached double figures for the Hawks, who fell for the fifth time in six games.
