After settling in, Wembanyama showed why he earned generational hype before being drafted with the top pick last month by the San Antonio Spurs. Wembanyama posted a double-double of 27 points and 12 rebounds, leading the Spurs in both categories and dazzling the crowd at the Thomas & Mack Center.
To nobody's surprise, Wembanyama shot better than his debut Friday against the Charlotte Hornets, when he went 2-for-13 from the field and scored just nine points. Wembanyama had surpassed that total by halftime Sunday.
