Wembanyama posts first triple-double with blocks as Spurs beat Raptors to end 7-game skid

TORONTO (AP) - Victor Wembanyama had 27 points, 14 rebounds and a career-high 10 blocks in his second triple-double, Devin Vassell added 25 points and the San Antonio Spurs snapped a seven-game losing streak by routing the Toronto Raptors 122-99 on Monday night.

Wembanyama made 10 of 14 attempts and had five assists and a pair of steals in 29 minutes as the Spurs won for the first time since Jan. 27 against Minnesota. His previous career high for blocks was eight, against Memphis on Nov. 18. He leads the NBA in that category.

It was the first triple-double with blocks since Clint Capela had 13 points, 19 rebounds and 10 blocks for Atlanta against Minnesota on Jan. 22, 2021. That had also been the last time anyone in the NBA blocked 10 shots in a game.

Jeremy Sochan scored 16 points and Keldon Johnson added 12 as San Antonio snapped a four-game road losing streak.
