On the court

Consecutive victories last week for the first time since Oct. 31 and Nov. 2 gave way to four-straight losses in a tough Week 15 for Wembanyama and the young Spurs.

The 20-year-old scored 16 points with 14 rebounds during a 114-113 loss Friday to New Orleans in a game San Antonio led 113-112 with 28.5 seconds left. Wembanyama finished a team-worst minus-9, in addition to misfiring on his only two shots in the fourth quarter. He also committed a pair of turnovers that led to four points for the Pelicans in the final frame.

A Flagrant 1 foul and defensive goaltending by Wembanyama tacked on three more points for the visiting Pelicans. Despite the mistakes and a blown opportunity, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich left encouraged by the way the Spurs fought to the bitter end.

“I thought we played our a—off,” Popovich said. “We missed some 3s in the second half that were wide open. We missed free throws. I don’t care. What I care about is we played so hard. Everybody makes mistakes, but 24 points off turnovers usually gets your butt kicked.”
