LOS ANGELES (AFP) — Victor Wembanyama posted an epic National Basketball Association triple-double of 27 points, 14 rebounds and 10 blocked shots on Monday to power San Antonio to a 122-99 victory at Toronto.

The 20-year-old, 7-foot-4 French rookie star, the top pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, had the most blocks in a game by any NBA player in more than three years in his second career NBA triple-double.

“We felt great today, had a great rhythm,” Wembanyama said.

“Started the game strong. I don’t know. I guess it’s just the NBA. We’ve got ups and downs in terms of shape. Today was an up day.”

Wembanyama became only the fifth player in NBA history with at least 25 points, 10 rebounds, 10 blocks and five assists in an NBA game, joining legendary big men Hakeem Olajuwon, Ralph Sampson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and former Spurs star David Robinson.

“It’s a great company to have a name in this group and even more because it’s in the Spurs family,” he said.
