Success achieved the unprecedented:
Wembanyama video shocked the tournament with Spurs!
While the Spurs lost again this Saturday evening against the Grizzlies, Victor Wembanyama had a big game despite a little clumsiness.
The Frenchman protected his circle in an impressive manner, to the point of approaching some records…
Still in front of their home crowd, the Spurs followed up with another defeat this Saturday, 120-108 against the Grizzlies.
Jaren Jackson Jr and his 27 points made the difference, while Victor Wembanyama finished with 19 units, 13 rebounds and 4 assists.
A solid match for the Frenchman but no victory at the end, which is undoubtedly starting to frustrate Gregg Popovich’s men.
The monumental Wembanyama block party
From this evening, we will still remember another remarkable statistic for Wemby: 8 blocks.
He has carried out real work in his area in order to protect his circle, to the point where his opponents are increasingly afraid of coming to challenge him.
He joins Tim Duncan and David Robinson in Spurs history to achieve such a feat, while another record was not far away.
Victor Wembanyama is the 3rd youngest player in NBA history (19 years, 318 days old) to record 8+ blocks in a game 🤯

Victor Wembanyama is the third youngest player in NBA history (19 years and 318 days) to record 8 or more blocks in a game. He joins Josh Smith and Darius Miles.
A real feat for Wembanyama, who naturally takes advantage of his 2m24 to frighten the competition.
We can also note that his movements are quick and allow him to challenge everything on the floor.
This is why the Frenchman is already considered a favorite for the title of defender of the year.
8 blocks is no small thing for a player, especially for a rookie with barely a month of experience in the NBA.
The league was quick to highlight the feat on its Twitter account:
Wemby was the ultimate PAINT PROTECTOR against the Grizzlies with 8⃣ BLK ⛔️

8 blocks is really crazy
No victory, and yet Victor Wembanyama still did his best this Saturday evening to return home with this success.
8 blocks is impressive for the Frenchman, even if he doesn’t plan to stop there. Looking forward to the rest of his campaign.
