Victor Wembanyama’s historic night wasn’t enough in Spurs loss to Lakers

Victor Wembanyama’s historic night wasn’t enough in Spurs loss to Lakers

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ The Spurs hung around but spent most of the night playing catch-up due to a rough shooting night. One night after missing out on a historic 5x5 statline by one assist, Victor Wembanyama achieved it the next with 27 points, 13 rebounds, 8 assists, 5 blocks and 5 steals against the Los Angeles Lakers, becoming the first player to achieve the 5x5 since Jusuf Nurkic in 2019. He also became the first player to average a 5x5 statline across multiple games since blocks started being tracked in 1973-74. Unfortunately, it didn’t lead his team to a...

Victor Wembanyama’s “Alien” logo | @NickKicks on X.Com The 7’4 French Wunderkind may have shown the world his rough draft for a Nike logo that’s likely to come one day Somehow slipping under my radar, All Star weekend afforded San Antonio Spurs rookie phenom Victor Wembanyama a chance to show off an interesting addition to his kicks for his first ever appearance at an NBA’ All Star weekend event. For the Rising Stars practice, Wemby rocked a pair of Nike GT Hustle 2s with a custom, “Alien,” logo on the heel that the young Frenchman says he drew one day....

Spurs’ starters have 10+ each in crushing loss to Kings

AP Photo/Randall Benton Spurs kick off the return from all-star break with a high-scoring classic. Coming out of the All-Star break, the San Antonio Spurs were looking to get a victory in Sacramento over the Kings. In what seemed like a back-and-forth affair from start to finish, the Spurs had a lead of four points with roughly two minutes to go. Unfortunately, they were unable to contain De’Aaron Fox in the clutch and ultimately lost 127-122. Devin Vassell was a big reason the Spurs stayed in the game throughout. He was unconscious from the field with 32 points on...

What we learned from the Spurs loss to the Kings

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ A core is forming. Moral victories have been the story of the San Antonio Spurs season. With only eleven literal victories, the team and fans alike have needed to look deeper to find positive takeaways. On Thursday night against the Sacramento Kings, you didn’t need to look very deep to come away feeling good about the 127-122 loss. After trailing for most of the game, the Spurs found themselves up four with two minutes to go in the fourth quarter. A Devin Vassell contested three-pointer put the Spurs in a position to win, if they could...

Spurs lose an exhilarating game in Sacramento to begin their post All-Star stretch

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports San Antonio played one of their most entertaining games of the season but came just short in the end. After an excruciating week without regular season basketball, the Spurs finally returned to action on Thursday night by dropping an exhilarating game against the Kings 127-122. The game was played at a ferocious pace from the start. Both teams ran hard after gaining possession and traded baskets back and forth. Devin Vassell was particularly hot by starting the game 5-5 from the field, which included a pair of drives and difficult...

Daniel Dunn-USA TODAY Sports The Rodeo Road Trip rolls on into Los Angeles Though they’ve struggled at various times this season, the Los Angeles Lakers are actually in a better place record-wise at this point in the season than they were last year. That version of the Lakers were 28-32 coming out of the All Star break before ultimately finishing 43-39 and making an improbable run to the Western Conference Finals as the 7th seed. As there seemingly always is in Lakerland, they’ve dealt with plenty of in-season drama, getting so bad at one point that rumors began to...

After a seven day break for All-Star Weekend, the San Antonio Spurs continued their rodeo road trip with a matchup against the Sacramento Kings. Despite trailing for a majority of the game, they made a push late, but couldn’t seal the win in a 127-122 loss to the Kings. Devin Vassell was electric for the Spurs. The wing scored at will against whatever defense Sacramento threw at him. He made aggressive drive to the rim, and hit open threes off the ball. Vassell finished with 32...

Potential site for next Spurs arena to be sold to the city

Is the next domino for a new Spurs arena about to fall? At 22 years old, the Frost Bank Center is beginning to become one of the more dated arenas in the NBA and has not had the impact many expected it would when it was built. Located about three miles away from downtown in an otherwise industrial/residential area that lacks restaurants or anywhere to hang out before or after games, it hasn’t produced the economic boom to that part of city many had hoped for. With new excitement surrounding the team thanks to the arrival of Victor Wembanyama, speculation has been rising that...
