Victor Wembanyama’s inaugural regular season game in the NBA turned out to be a challenging one for the 19-year-old player. Unfortunately, foul trouble plagued his performance, resulting in limited playing time during the San Antonio Spurs’ 126-119 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night. The top overall pick of the 2023 NBA Draft accumulated two fouls in the first quarter and two more early in the third, ultimately restricting him to a mere 23 minutes on the court against their in-state rivals.
The game saw Dallas’ standout player, Luka Doncic, shine and ultimately overshadow Wembanyama’s debut. Doncic delivered an impressive performance, amassing 33 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists, contributing significantly to his team’s triumph.
