Zion Williamson ended the game against the Dallas Mavericks with 38 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assist, shooting 13/20 from the field and 12/18 from the foul line.
After the loss, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle talked about the former Duke’s potential and talent:
“He’s an unusual force and obviously a great player…We’ll have to figure something a little better out next time, but he’s doing this to everybody. We did have some very good possessions guarding him, but he was a beast.
“It presents huge challenges for the defense and for officials. He is just creating collisions out there. This is a Shaquille O’Neal-type force of nature with a point guard skill set.”
