With Zion Williamson, the Pelicans sink the Clippers

As usual, the traditional match on Sunday night (in France) will not be remembered. However, from an accounting point of view, the pelicans will keep a nice memory of her, who exhibited an attractive face to win among the Scissors (112-91).

Still bereft of Brandon Ingram, the New Orleans franchise has, however, recorded the return of zion williamson (21 points, 12 rebounds, 7 assists) who, along with CJ McCollum (22 points), paved the way for Willie Green’s men. Especially in the second half, the moment chosen by the Pels to widen the gap and not look in the rearview mirror anymore.

WHAT TO REMEMBER

The strong return of Zion Williamson. After missing his team’s last two games, the Pelicans’ buffalo finally returned to the field a week after his last outing. And he did not stop taking care of his recovery, because today he was in all the good plays. Involved in scoring, rebounding and passing, the All-Star inside thus came close to his first career triple-double, dominating without straining the Clippers’ powerless racket.

The canon of the second period of New Orleans. Tied with the Clippers at halftime (52-52), the Pelicans came back from the locker room in top form. Led by their duo CJ McCollum – Zion Williamson, they quickly blew up the Californian defense, with 3-point baskets and shots in the paint. Taking advantage of, as a bonus, the failure to shoot Paul George, Reggie Jackson and others to inflict a +21 on Tyronn Lue’s men, unrecognizable.

TOPS/FLOPS

The New Orleans Collective. Zion Williamson obviously, but also CJ McCollum, Naji Marhsall (17 points, 6 rebounds), Larry Nance Jr. (15 points, 9 rebounds), Trey Murphy III (15 points, 5 rebounds), Jonas Valanciunas (11 points, 7 rebounds). ). , 5 assists) or Devonte ‘Graham (9 points, 7 assists). It is an understatement to say that Willie Green could have counted on good depth of banking to leave the Crypto.com Arena with a smile. Inspired by the 3 points, imperial in paint and cheap from the second quarter, the Pelicans thus seduced collectively.

Norman Powell. Off the bench, “Norm” (18 points) was the Clippers’ only ray of sunshine today. A rare skilled California player (7/14 shooting, including 3/7 3-point shooting), he floated long for Los Angeles. From his game we will especially remember his heat stroke in the first half, when he scored 9 points in a few minutes, to install his team in the lead. For a while, he just…

paul george. If Reggie Jackson was not a great night either (9 points and 4 lost shots, 4/12 in shots including 1/7 to 3 pts), it is impossible to miss the terrible performance of “PG13”: 14 points and 4 lost shots, only 5/ 19 in shots, including 2/8 in 3 points… Never in rhythm, he forced his team a lot and weighed him down in attack. A performance finally in line with those of his start to the season because, in addition to his output of 40 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists against the Kings, the All-Star winger has consistently finished below 20 points and 40% of success in shots. …
