Victor Wembanyama, the Spurs' rookie phenom, put on a show last night at the Moody Center, notching seven blocks, along with 33 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists as the Spurs edged the Nets in overtime.

Why it matters: Wemby's impressive Austin performance — replete with an alley-oop reverse dunk — comes just as the Spurs are trying to extend their brand in Central Texas.

The bottom line: You couldn't take your eyes off Wemby as he willed his mediocre team to victory.
