Zion Williamson scored 15 points in about 21 minutes for New Orleans as the Denver Nuggets beat the New Orleans Pelicans 113-106 on Friday night.  

Zion logged his first dunk in a Pelicans' uniform on a lob from Jrue Holiday in the opening minutes.

He was still limited in time, however, as he returns from knee surgery.  Zion also had a moster block, knocking a shot five rows deep into the crowd.

Nuggets forward Nikola Jokic had 27 points and 12 rebounds to lead his team to victory.

The Pelicans fall to 0-2 following  the NBA's  first overall draft pick finally getting on the court.
