Tim Duncan scored 23 points, including a last-second basket to win the game, and grabbed 21 rebounds to spark the San Antonio Spurs over the Atlanta Hawks 102-100. The 37-year-old NBA superstar, who has led the Spurs to four league titles and twice won the regular season NBA Most Valuable Player award, on Monday took a pass from Manu Ginobili and sank the deciding shot with 0.4 of a second remaining. Duncan, who hit 10-of-15 shots from the field and also blocked two shots, lifted the Spurs to their 15th victory in 18 games while the Hawks fell to 9-10 with their 16th consecutive loss in games played at San Antonio.
In early 1953, Merrill Newman and Allen Hedges were among a small group of U.S. servicemen hunkered down on a tiny, frequently shelled island off the west coast of North Korea. And so, Hedges said, they never did. Why Newman felt compelled to set foot in North Korea more than 60 years after the end of the Korean War remains a baffling question to Hedges and several other surviving members of the U.S. Army 8240th Unit. Newman, now an 85-year-old retired business executive living in California, was detained in late October while visiting North Korea on a tourist trip.
