'Incomparable' Williamson on a high

Sports | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 13 Feb 2020

Rookie Zion Williamson scored a career-high 31 points as the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 138-117.

"I hold myself to high expectations, but I think it's just finding the line between reality and dreams," said the 19-year-old, who also had nine rebounds and five assists. "If my teammates find me, they find me. If not, I just got to make another play, get the rebound and just play defense."

Williamson, the first pick in the NBA entry draft, missed the first three months of the season because of a knee injury.

"I don't really think he's comparable to anyone that I have seen," Portland forward Carmelo Anthony said of Williamson. "Someone who is as powerful as that, who jumps like that. You can tell he's getting better."
