It's just been two games, but it's hard not to get all excited for the Pelicans. After all, they did blow out Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets in their opening game, 130-108. This was followed up by another victory against a LaMelo Ball-less Charlotte Hornets side on Friday, 124-112.

For his part, Zion Williamson has been a beast for the Pelicans in their first two games of the campaign. He's averaged 20.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 2.5 steals in those two contests. The sample size may be small, but there's no denying that both Zion and the Pels are looking very dangerous thus far.
