Victor Wembanyama Returns, But Warriors Get Revenge on Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs couldn't pull out a win against the Golden State Warriors in Victor Wembanyama's return.

The San Antonio Spurs are back in the loss column after a 112-102 defeat at the hands of the Golden State Warriors tonight at the Frost Bank Center.

The Spurs pulled ahead early in the game, building a lead as large as 17 points. However, the Warriors knocked on the door in the second half and stormed ahead. The Warriors held the Spurs to just 18 points in the third quarter, going up by double digits going into the fourth quarter.

While the Spurs got to within eight points, they never got closer and sent their fans home disappointed.

Victor Wembanyama returned from a two-game absence nursing an ankle injury, and he led all scorers with 27 points and 14 rebounds.

The Warriors, who were playing without Stephen Curry again, contributed by committee. The team had six players score in double figures, including a team-high 22 points from Jonathan Kuminga.

The loss confirms a split in the home-and-home series with the Warriors, which was the goal coming into the two-game set, so the Spurs can walk away from tonight knowing they competed hard against a playoff-caliber team.

The Spurs will have a quick turnaround, hosting the Houston Rockets tomorrow night at home. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. CT.
