The San Antonio Spurs of a discreet Victor Wembanyama (9 points) suffered a 9th defeat in a row and a new correction against the Los Angeles Clippers (124-99) Monday at home in the NBA. Trailing from the end of the first quarter, the Spurs never managed to worry the Los Angeles franchise and saw the gap widen against Paul George (28 points) and former Spur Kawhi Leonard (21 points) .
The French prodigy Victor Wembanyama (19 years old), once again clumsy (4 of 12 shooting), showed little action on Monday, finishing with 9 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocks in 26 minutes.
San Antonio, still deprived of its fullback Devin Vassell, recorded its 9th defeat in a row (3 wins – 11 losses in total) and consolidates its last place in the Western Conference standings. The Spurs host the Clippers again on Wednesday.
In the rest of the NBA, the other French draftee Bilal Coulibaly scored 12 points (3 rebounds) during the new defeat of the Wizards, while Killian Hayes lost his starting place and was very discreet with the Detroit Pistons (0 points, 2 assists in almost 14 minutes). Rudy Gobert scored 16 points and grabbed 7 rebounds for a new victory for his Minnesota Timberwolves, at the top of the Western Conference (9 wins – 3 losses), against the New York Knicks (117-100).
