Zion Williamson vs Spurs, Jan 22

What a debut. Slow start and spent most of the time on the bench before unleashing in the fourth to score 17 straight for the Pelicans.

Finished with 22/7/3 in 18 minutes on court. 8/11 FG, 4/4 3P.

Here's the stretch where he scored 17 points in about three minutes:

Wow that's impressive!!

Did he get 2 dunks this game out of curiosity?

I saw a bookie was paying $2.50 for Zion to have 2+ dunks

No dunks at all, not close to any really. Wasn't a free flowing game and as such very little space for him to explode in to space. The four triples were a very unexpected wrinkle to his game. Can’t wait until he finds his rhythm now that his debut is dusted.

I know we've got a small sample;

But this guy shoots the most ridiculous FG %'s I've ever seen;

72% in his HS school career (inclduing 78% in his final year); 68% at Duke (which is absolutely ridiculous considering he averaged 22ppg); 71% FG in 4 NBA pre-season games; and 72% in yesterday's game.

Again, I know we've got a small sample size but that type of consistency in FG% is not a fluke IMO.

Incredible numbers and there's enough to suggest he is going to be incredibly efficient.

He's a generational talent and athlete who should wind up the best player in the league in 3-5 years if he stays healthy. Good kid too, hard not to root for him to be honest. I bought league pass this year solely to see him play, and have watched maybe 7-8 games all season with him out. Now he's back I'm hoping it motivates me to get my money's worth.
