Williamson's 22 in debut not enough for Pelicans vs. Spurs

Then the NBA's No. 1 overall draft pick went to the bench – as mandated by medical staff – and watched the game slip away from the Pelicans while unheeded chants of, “We want Zion!” echoed around the Smoothie King Center. Williamson capped his long-awaited NBA debut by scoring 17 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and stirring the crowd into a frenzy ��� but the savvy and composed San Antonio Spurs weathered the surge for a 121-117 victory Wednesday night. LaMarcus Aldridge had 32 points and 14 rebounds, DeMar DeRozan added 20 points, and the San Antonio Spurs withstood Williamson's late surge for a 121-117 victory over New Orleans on Wednesday night.
