Lonzo Ball, Zion Williamson hook up on multiple alley-oops from past half court
Williamson’s ability to get out and run the floor in transition–as well as his sheer athleticism–make him an ideal target for Ball, who is at his best making plays in the open floor.
The duo were at it again on Sunday afternoon, connecting on multiple lobs from past half court:

Ball is growing more comfortable with Williamson in the rotation. He entered Sunday’s game averaging 21.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 7.8 assists through the first four games in March while also shooting a sterling .514 from beyond the arc.
They have the ability to feed off one another in that regard. Williamson commands plenty of attention in the paint, usually leading to open looks for his teammates.
Simultaneously, Ball’s tremendous court vision and ability to thread the needle make Williamson even more dangerous when the Pelicans get out on the break.
The half-court lobs have almost become commonplace for Ball and Williamson, who are showing why the Pelicans have such an exciting future.
