Doncic overshadows Wembanyama debut, and Mavericks beat Spurs

The most anticipated debut of NBA since LeBron James in 2003 he has been overshadowed by Luka Doncic.

Wembanyama had problems with fouls and ended up with a discreet debut, with 15 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 1 block. Luka Doncic had 33 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists.

Kyrie Irving, the Mavs’ second star, had 22 points, but a low performance of just 10 converted shots out of 24 attempted.

The game started with a bang, with the teams having a first quarter with many points: 43 to 36 for Spurs.

The game continued with a high score and was quite balanced until the end. Wembanyama ended up with four fouls in the third quarter and got into trouble in the game.

In the last period, he still managed to score nine points, but he had a discreet debut and the Mavs emerged victorious.
