Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson combined for 50 points, guiding the New Orleans Pelicans to a 96-87 triumph over the New York Knicks on Saturday night.

Despite the Knicks’ resilient efforts, the Pelicans’ offensive duo proved to be the difference-makers.

Despite a strong push from the Knicks in the second half, the Pelicans’ strategic execution and offensive efficiency, coupled with a resilient defensive effort, secured their commanding lead and ultimately sealed their triumph.

The Knicks, fatigued from playing a back-to-back game, struggled to contain the Pelicans’ offensive onslaught, with turnovers and defensive lapses hindering their attempts to close the scoring gap.

While the Knicks showcased glimpses of resilience, led by RJ Barrett’s 18-point performance and Mitchell Robinson’s dominant rebounding presence, their efforts fell short against the Pelicans’ cohesive and relentless offensive display.
