San Antonio Spurs Lose 15th Consecutive Game, Close to Franchise Record

San Antonio conceded its 15th defeat in a row to Minnesota (102-94) on Wednesday despite the return of Victor Wembanyama, absent during the last match. Spurs are close to matching their worst losing streak in their history

Victor Wembanyama’s San Antonio Spurs, back after missing a meeting (hip), lost their 15th consecutive game at Western Conference leader Minnesota (102-94) on Wednesday in the NBA. With 15 defeats in a row, the Spurs are getting closer to the franchise record (16), set last season.

Ovation pour Gobert

Clumsy when shooting, Wembanyama was rather discreet for his return (12 points, 10 rebounds). San Antonio held up well before cracking in the fourth quarter. Another Frenchman took the spotlight, Rudy Gobert, with 16 points, 21 rebounds and 2 blocks, to a standing ovation from his audience.

“We were behind at halftime but we continued to believe in ourselves, in our defense. When things get tough we stay confident in ourselves. Since the summer training camp we have a different energy, just one goal, it’s nice to see that the work pays off”, appreciated Gobert, an essential defensive cog for the Wolves.

“Playing with Victor (Wembanyama) is fun. He’s someone I like, I hope he’s successful, I’ll always be there for him, I can’t wait to see him develop,” greeted the eldest (2.16 m), who could form the racket of the French basketball team with the young giant (2.24 m) at the Paris Olympic Games in 2024.

While the Spurs remain last in the west (3 wins – 17 losses), Minnesota is at the top of the standings (16 wins – 4 losses) and undefeated for five games.
