You Tube Gold: Zion Williamson Sets Another Career High

That’s not as important as how he did it.

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at New Orleans Pelicans

Although Oklahoma City beat the Pelicans Thursday night 123-118, it’s clear that the Zion Williamson we saw last year is steadily returning.

He’s been tremendous on offense since he started playing but the rest of his game hasn’t completely been there.

It’s coming back fast.

Watch in this video for a block. Then watch how much more quickly he is moving and reacting than he was in his first game back.

No one in this game can remotely stop him from doing whatever he wants to do.

Next up is the Rising Stars game and we think he may completely erupt in that one. The game will be on TNT at 9:00 on Friday. You may want to record.

It’s not like he’s the only Blue Devil worth paying attention to of course. Jayson Tatum has been superb lately and had 39 in Boston’s double overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers for one.

It’s just that we’ve never seen anyone like Williamson and watching him play is fun on a different level.
