French rookie Victor Wembanyama, at 7-foot-3, has 16 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists for his first triple-double in the NBA. He led the San Antonio Spurs to a 130-108 victory over the Detroit Pistons. Wemby, the No. 1 pick last summer, pulled off the feat in just 21 minutes. In NBA history, only Russell Westbrook had double digits in points, rebounds, and assists faster in a 20-minute performance for Oklahoma in 2014. It was a game of cellar dwellers, with the Pistons now 3-35 and the Spurs improve to 6-30.
