NBA “super rookie” Victor Wembanyama had 18 rebounds and five blocked shots, but his San Antonio Spurs fell into the depths of a 17-game losing streak.

San Antonio lost 82-93 away to the Houston Rockets in the 2023-2024 NBA regular season at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, U.S., on Wednesday (June 12).

With the loss, the Spurs have not won in more than a month and have lost 17 games in a row since defeating the Phoenix Suns 132-121 on March 3.

At 3-19, the Spurs’ standings show no sign of moving out of the bottom of the Western Conference. The gap to the 14th-place Memphis Grizzlies (6-16) has grown to three games.

Last place in the Eastern Conference is the Detroit Pistons (2-21), who lost 131-123 to the Indiana Pacers on Sunday. Detroit has lost 20 straight games.

San Antonio finished last last season with a 22-60 record.

The team hasn’t finished in the bottom half of the standings in recent years with a winning percentage of less than 5 percent, including 34-48 카지노사이트 (10th) in 2021-2022, 33-39 (10th) in the 2020-2021 season, which was shortened due to the coronavirus pandemic, and 32-39 (11th) in 2019-2020.

Houston, on the other hand, which won just 22 games with San Antonio in 2022-2023, seems to have turned things around early this season.

Riding a three-game winning streak, the Rockets (11-9) have moved into seventh place in the West.

The Rockets, who hired head coach Ime Udoka in April, one of the top experts in improving team defense, have allowed the fewest points this season (105.6 on average).

In this game, they held San Antonio to 82 points.

Facing Houston’s salty defense, which holds opponents to an average 43.8% field goal percentage, San Antonio was outplayed in most metrics.

They shot 35.6 percent from the field and missed a whopping 36 of 41 3-pointers.

The game turned into a defensive battle as Wembanyama cracked down on the boards with 15 points, 18 rebounds and five blocked shots, but the Rockets hit more than twice as many 3-pointers (12) as San Antonio.

Turkique big man Alpern Sengin led Houston’s offense with 15 points, nine rebounds and four assists.

For San Antonio, the simultaneous struggles of forward combinations Devin Wassell (14 points, 31.3 percent field goal shooting) and Caldon Johnson (12 points, 21.4 percent field goal shooting) proved costly. 바카라사이트
