Tim Duncan's dunk midway through the first quarter of the Wizards-Spurs game moved the veteran power forward to 25th on the NBA's all-time scoring list.

The two points were Nos. 22,196 and 22,197 in Duncan's career, moving him past Clyde Drexler (22,195 career points).

For his career, Duncan is averaging 20.4 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. He averaged a career-high 25.5 points during the 2001-02 season, the fifth of eight straight years averaging at least 20 points.

This year, Duncan is averaging 14.3 points and 8.4 rebounds in 28.1 minutes. The Spurs were 26-13 entering Monday night's game, second in the Western Conference behind the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Duncan is fifth among active players on the all-time scoring list behind Kobe Bryant (fifth), Kevin Garnett (18th), Dirk Nowitzki (20th) and Ray Allen (24th).
