The Pelicans were able to display some fast past transition offense as expected with the addition of Williamson and Lonzo Ball. Ball only had 2 points but dished 9 assists in his 18 minutes of play. Ball also nabbed 4 steals.

At the other end of the court was rookie guard Coby White who Zion knows well from collegiate play. The former Tarheel dropped 13 points off the bench on 6-15 shooting. White displayed the athleticism that earned him that 7th overall draft position to the Chicago Bulls.
