San Antonio Spurs rookie Victor Wembanyama did not shoot the ball well against the New York Knicks on November 8. The 19-year-old shot 4-of-14 from the field and 0-of-4 from beyond the arc.

Wembanyama finished with 14 points, nine rebounds and three turnovers in the Spurs’ 21-point loss to the Knicks. During one of his trips to the foul line, Wembanyama heard “overrated” chants from the Madison Square Garden crowd.

The Spurs have lost three consecutive games. After back-to-back wins against the Phoenix Suns last week, San Antonio has lost to the Toronto Raptors, Indiana Pacers and Knicks.

“We’re learning,” Wembanyama said. “As a young team, any team really, we’re going to go through losing streaks sometimes during the season in tough times. It’s going to happen. But the most important thing is how we bounce back.”

Wembanyama is averaging 18.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 2.4 blocks on the season. He’s shooting 44.1% from the field, 29.3% from beyond the arc and 79.1% from the free-throw line.

“We got good intentions, and we learned a lot also from the coaching staff defensively, so we’re just trying to apply what they say,” Wembanyama said.”But I think what’s good is we are bringing energy at all times, so this is a good start. But we got great potential defensively. I know in the past games, especially in Phoenix, we’ve seen great defensive sequences. We’re just all getting it together.”
