Zion Williamson scored 24 points, leading the New Orleans Pelicans to the 116-104 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. It was his 10th consecutive game scoring at least 20 points.

Williamson is now averaging 23.4 points per game this season. He has only played in 14 games so far, but his stellar performances have gotten him into the running for Rookie of the Year.

The Pelicans are now just two games behind the Memphis Grizzlies and their star rookie, Ja Morant, for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. If the Pelicans make the playoffs, that could give Williamson an edge over Morant in the Rookie of the Year voting.
