CJ McCollum Returns, Zion Williamson Puts On A Masterpiece
What a day for the New Orleans Pelicans as not only did they beat the Philadelphia 76ers, but both CJ McCollum and Zion Williamson played out of their minds.
For Williamson, he dropped 33 points on 11/12 shooting along with 8 rebounds, 6 assists, and 3 steals. Talk about perfect performance, from his shooting splits to his actual stats; it was incredible to see out of the former number-one pick.
Now, let us talk about McCollum and what he did in his return to New Orleans. For those that don’t know, the veteran guard was out for the last three weeks due to a collapsed lung. The good news, he is obviously in good health again.
The better news is that McCollum finished up with 20 points and 5 assists in their win against the Sixers. When both are healthy, this one-two-punch duo cannot be stopped.
