Wemby Continues To Impress

In the last minute of Thursday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs, Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo bounded his way to the basket, trying to create space against rookie big Victor Wembanyama and rising up, like he has so often done in his career.

But for Antetokounmpo, the outcome was anything but typical. Wembanyama, the first overall selection, swatted the ball away with his lengthy wingspan, giving the Spurs a chance to play against the club that has the third-best record in the NBA.
As they battled until the very end, both players produced a number of standout performances. Antetokounmpo dunk on many Spurs in a spectacular sequence, and Wembanyama responded with a self-alley-oop off the boards during the following play.
Wembanyama noted that even with the defeat, San Antonio might improve going ahead after their performance against a club vying for a title this year.

According to Wembanyama, "it's promising." "When we returned to the locker room, it was the first thing [Spurs coach Gregg Popovich] told us. During certain parts of the game, everything appeared to be working well. And I could sense the audience starting to believe in us and move. Tonight, some of this felt fulfilling."
