Victor Wembanyama on his debut.

The NBA’s “super rookie,” Victor Wembanyama (San Antonio Spurs), who has been

called a rookie, an alien, and many other things before the season started, had an impressive debut.


Started the Spurs’ first game of the season against the local rival Dallas Mavericks at

the Frost Bank Center in Dallas, Texas, on Saturday. The result was a 119-126 loss for San Antonio.

Wembanyama scored 15 points, including three 3-pointers, to go along with five

rebounds, one blocked shot, and two steals in 23 minutes and 19 seconds of action.

However, he also committed five turnovers and picked up five personal fouls, highlighting his weaknesses.

Wembanyama’s natural athleticism at 6-foot-9 with a 243.8-inch arm span and a fluid

3-point shot have earned him the respect of head coach Gregg Popovich, who made

him the No. 1 overall pick in the rookie draft.

After blocking a shot by Dallas’ Kyrie Irving (22 points) early in the first quarter to make

his debut official, Wembanyama hit a high percentage three-pointer to bring the home crowd to its feet.

However, the lanky Wembanyama was unable to get to the basket against Dallas’

defense. 카지노사이트랭크 He scored just six points in the first and third quarters

combined, and his personal foul count kept him out of the game.

It was in the fourth quarter of a tightly contested game that Wembanyama made his presence felt.

After re-entering the game with just over seven minutes left, Wembanyama took a pass

from Devin Bassell for an alley-oop dunk at the 6:53 mark. Wembanyama scored nine

points in the fourth quarter, including a three-pointer with 6:03 left, and it looked like he was going to lead his team to victory.

But Dallas rallied from a 118-119 deficit with just over two minutes left, and Luka

Doncic and Irving took turns hitting 3-pointers to spoil San Antonio’s home-opening feast.

Doncic finished with 33 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists for his 57th career triple-double. 섯다
