Wembanyama — the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NBA draft — appeared in 71 games with the Spurs, who enter the finale with a 21-60 record and tied entering the season’s final day with Portland for the worst record in the Western Conference.

He had 34 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and five 3-pointers in what was his last game as a rookie, a 121-120 win over defending NBA champion Denver on Friday night. The Spurs rallied from 23 points down to win the game.
