Zion Williamson Plays 21 Minutes, Scores 15 Points

New Orleans Pelicans power forward/center Zion Williamson played his second game of his career on Friday and he did not disappoint, but his club still lost to the Nuggets by seven points. Williams connected on 7-for-9 shooting en route to 15 points while adding six rebounds, a steal and a block with the most impressive number being a plus-16 when he was on the floor in 21 minutes of action. He provided more highlights in this one as he looked to be getting more comfortable and he still played in short four to six-minute stints. We should see his minutes slowly going up as the season progresses.

Brandon Ingram Struggles In Friday's Loss

New Orleans Pelicans guard/forward Brandon Ingram could not get things going on Friday and it affected his club's outcome in the 113-106 loss to the Nuggets at home. Ingram connected on just 3-for-11 shooting en route to his lowest point total of 13 points since he scored 14 points way back on December 6th. Ingram did still manage to block two shots and hand out five dimes across 34 minutes of action. Ingram is in a bit of shooting slump as he has made just 15 of his 47 shot attempts over his last three games.

Christian Wood Records Second Consecutive 20-Point Game

Detroit Pistons power forward Christian Wood remained hot on Friday against Memphis, recording his second consecutive game with at least 20 points. He reached 20 on 5-for-8 shooting, which included three successful attempts from downtown. Wood was also busy at the line with a 7-for-9 record, and he almost had a double-double by racking up eight rebounds. The 24-year-old forward always seems to perform well when he gets enough minutes, but sadly it doesn't happen too often, even with Blake Griffin (knee) on the shelf. Andre Drummond (lip laceration) was also missing on Friday. Wood and Thon Maker, who had 11 points and eight rebounds against Memphis, are the guys to target whenever Drummond sits out.
