Playoff race heats up as San Antonio Spurs stun Denver Nuggets, seeding, Western Conference No.1 seed, Oklahoma City Thunder

Victor Wembanyama scored 34 points as the San Antonio Spurs stunned the Denver Nuggets 121-120 to upend the race for the No. 1 seeding in the NBA Western Conference.

French rookie Wembanyama, who has produced a dazzling debut season in the NBA despite playing on a struggling Spurs team, was superb once again as San Antonio pulled off a remarkable victory over the reigning NBA champions.

The 20-year-old from Paris led an injury-hit Spurs line-up to finish with 34 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and two blocks, underscoring his reputation as the most exciting talent to land in NBA since LeBron James.

The result delighted San Antonio’s veteran coach Gregg Popovich, who saw his team recover from a 23-point deficit early in the third quarter to snatch victory.
