Rookie Zion scores incredible dunk in first Pelicans appearance

Pelicans vs Hawks LIVE Stream and Preseason Updates

Hours before the New Orleans Pelicans played in their first preseason game, coach Alvin Gentry did his best to paint Zion Williamson's game as just a learning opportunity for another young player. "I had to be somewhat of a good basketball player to get here, so whenever I have a chance to showcase my other abilities I try".

He also produced a moment that showed just why he is one of the most hyped prospects to enter the league, driving at Hawks center Damian Jones and bypassing his attempted block to finish with authority.

After taking a 34-29 lead after the first quarter, the Pelicans blew the game open with a 46-point second quarter and never looked back, leading by as many as 29 points.

"They shouldn't do that [comparing]", Gentry said.

Sri Lanka outclass Pakistan by 35 runs to claim T20 series
The two left-handers hit a pair of sixes and a boundary off leg-spinner Shadab Khan before both fell in the space of seven runs. Sri Lanka , meanwhile, will be aiming to seal the first T20I series after losing all four of their most recent T20I series.

Zion Williamson has been touted as the next LeBron James. "We are not doing that".

Williamson, who finished with 16 points, seven rebounds, three assists and three steals in 28 minutes, was a dominant force in his lone season at Duke, but the forward's incomparable athleticism and rim-rattling dunks is what made him the most exciting college player in a generation. We want Zion to be the best Zion Williamson that he can be. "I know that it's inevitable that that's going to be the case, but we are not drinking that Kool-Aid".

Williamson finished the game with 16 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists.

"It was everything I expected", Pierce said.
