The San Antonio Spurs won 130-108 against the Detroit Pistons in the 2023-2024 NBA regular season at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on the 11th (Korea time).
Both teams are at the bottom of each conference. This means that fierce competition was expected. However, the game started to tilt from the first quarter. Victor Wembanyama, San Antonio’s No. 1 player, showed off his powerful performance.
Wembanyama started to tease Detroit by banking on his superiority from the first quarter. Wembanyama also displayed plays that enabled his teammates to take advantage of their chances. Wembanyama’s final record in the first quarter was six points, five rebounds, and four assists. This gave San Antonio a 12-point lead in the first quarter.
Wembanyama’s dominance continued. Wembanyama broke Detroit’s defense by scoring points, rebounding points, assists, and so on.
As a result, Wembanyama completed a triple-double with 16 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists. The record is equivalent to the youngest triple-double in the history of the big man.
What’s surprising is that Wembanyama played only 21 minutes and 2 seconds and achieved a triple double. It was the second fastest triple-double after Russell Westbrook since the introduction of the shot clock.
“I actually didn’t know it was the second fastest triple-double record in NBA history. I think winning is everything. I’m not someone who just talks without any ability. That’s something I want to say as a player and as a team,” Wembanyama said in an interview after the game.라바카지노도메인
It was predicted to some extent that Wembanyama would show strong performance in scoring and rebounding. Not satisfied with the results, Wembanyama is trying to re-emerge as a total package big man by showing off his talent in passing as well. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich already knew this.
“Victor Wembanyama is a player who is very good at passing. Even before joining San Antonio, he was a good loser,” Popovich said.
Teammate Devin Bassel also praised Wembanyama, saying, “We have a lot of roles for him. He is ready to do exactly that.”
