Rookie Victor Wembanyama scored a season-high 38 points in a 131-121 win over the Phoenix Suns, as he's now totaled 103 points in his first five NBA games - being the only rookie, along with David Robinson, to score 100 or more points in that span.
The 19-year-old, basketball sensation had a handful of highlight plays, including a flying-down-the-lane-for-a-dunk move in the second quarter, as he had 20 points to himself alone in the first half.
The 7-foot-4 Frenchman shot 15 of 26 from the field and had 10 rebounds in Thursday night's away victory.

Wemby, who can alternatively play as a power forward or center, hit a 3-pointer, made three free throws, dunked and hit an 18-foot jumper during the decisive run.
