Victor Wembanyama scores 38 points, Spurs hold off Suns 132-121 to complete 2-game sweep

PHOENIX: Rookie Victor Wembanyama scored a season-high 38 points, Zach Collins added 19 and the San Antonio Spurs held off Phoenix’s late charge to beat the Suns 132-121 on Thursday night.

The Suns erased a 27-point deficit, tying it at 116 with 4:21 left on Keita Bates-Diop’s 3-pointer, but the Spurs responded by scoring the next 12 points, including 10 from the precocious Wembanyama. In just his fifth NBA game, the 7-foot-4 Frenchman shot 15 of 26 from the field and had 10 rebounds.
