2.) Devin Vassell continues showing shooting prowess

Devin Vassell has notched numerous impressive performances since returning from an early groin injury. Despite gradually getting used to his usual minutes while dealing with nicks and bruises to his teammates, the fourth-year swingman has set the league on fire with his scoring. He is shooting an incredible 49.6% from the field and a remarkable 43.1% from beyond the arc. The energy he provides the Spurs with his offensive prowess is mesmerizing.

Vassell is undoubtedly San Antonio's biggest scoring threat, particularly when the offense sputters out of the gates. The Spurs rely on him to nail difficult shots off the dribble, and his ability to convert contested looks at a high percentage makes him stand out even more. If Wembanyama is the anchor that holds together the defense, then the same can be said about Vassell on the offensive end.
