Victor Wembanyama and LeBron James face off for first time as San Antonio Spurs snap worst-ever losing streak kraken5.atWhen LeBron James and Victor Wembanyama took to the court on Friday, it marked a monumental meeting between two generational talents – one at the end of his career, the other at the beginning – as the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 129-115, snapping their record losing streak.The two NBA stars finally came face to face near the end of the second quarter, with James pinned in the corner by Wembanyama’s 8-foot wingspan. But facing the much-acclaimed Frenchman was no matter for the 38-year-old, who simply stepped back and sunk a 23-foot three-pointer from behind the arc.“Just trying to get his hands down a little bit because I know his wingspan,” James said afterwards, according to the NBA. “I was trying to create a little more room and shoot a little higher.”Although James won that brief matchup, it was Wembanyama and the Spurs who came out on top overall, sparking jubilation among the team as they celebrated snapping a franchise-record 18-game losing streak.
