Zion Williamson, Bradon Ingram lead historic drubbing of Magic

Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, Pelicans, Magic

Nothing can make a team look better, quite like playing the Orlando Magic. On Thursday, Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, and the New Orleans Pelicans got the full “Magic” experience, looking like a super team in the process. Besides earning the 35-point victory over the last-place club, the Pelicans also set multiple franchise marks along the way.

Not bad for a day’s work. We just hope that you had Williamson and Ingram in your daily NBA Fantasy lineup.

The obliteration of the Magic couldn’t have come at a better time for the beleaguered Pelicans, who not only came into the match a mere 25-33 on the season for 11th place in the Western Conference but had been riding a four-game losing streak as well.

But besides the much-needed victory, the game also showcased just how deadly the duo of Williamson and Ingram could be. While the two young All-Stars have had tremendous success scoring this year, with both averaging above 24 points per game with decent efficiency numbers, they have also developed a habit of playing “your turn, my turn” on offense, leading to an attack that is not quite as deadly as it should be.

Against the Magic, however, Williamson and Ingram appeared perfectly in sync playing off one another, scoring 39 first-half points, tied for the most the two have scored together in an opening half, according to ESPN Statistics & Information.

Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson eventually finished with 23 and 29 points, respectively. With the Pelicans desperate to hold on to their spot in the play-in tournament, the only question they’ll be asking is: Can they play the Magic every day?
