This is a record Victor Wembanyama could have done without. But his debut in San Antonio will be remembered for the incredible run of bad luck the Texan franchise has never seen the end of. On their travels to neighboring Houston, the Spurs conceded their 17th defeat in a row, thus doing worse than the 16 consecutive setbacks they suffered last season, which ended with 60 defeats and just 22 wins.
