Many rookie guards struggle with efficiency during their debut NBA seasons, and Alexander-Walker was no different, shooting just 37 percent from the field and 35 percent on threes. He’s shown major improvement through 11 appearances this season, at 45 percent from the field. His three-point accuracy (36 percent) is up a tick and he’s gone 9/20 during the road trip.
You don't need too many reminders about what makes New Orleans Pelicans sensation Zion Williamson such a special, celebrated young player.
Gobert demolished Adams on the defensive boards keeping him, and Zion from getting an edge in offensive rebounds. He’ll have to do the same tonight if Utah wants to keep New Orleans from getting the offensive boards they live off of night in and night out. Gobert also was elite protecting the rim.
