  • Brandon Ingram

The Pelicans were led by Brandon Ingram, who had 34 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 steals.

Ingram had 34 points (12-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 31 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

Ingram had 34 points (12-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 31 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

Ingram set a season high in scoring and looked impressive on both ends of the court as he led the team to victory over a depleted Warriors team.

Ingram has now scored at least 25 points in two consecutive games after failing to do so even once in a five-game span between Nov. 9 and Nov. 16.

Even though he hasn’t been particularly consistent from game to game, the former Lakers forward is still having a productive season, averaging 22.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game.

  • Zion Williamson

Zion Williamson had a bad night, scoring only 9 points, well below his season average of 22.3 points per game.

Zion Williamson is ready for tonight’s game against the San Antonio Spurs in New Orleans.

In 23 minutes against the Warriors on Monday, Williamson (foot) had nine points (3-7 FG, 3-4 FT), four assists, and two rebounds.

Williamson returned to action after missing three games due to a right foot contusion, and he had one of the worst fantasy performances of the season.

The Pelicans made no mention of Williamson’s minutes restriction upon his return to the lineup, but because New Orleans led by 24 points at halftime, none of the starters saw their usual amounts of playing time.

Williamson’s minutes and production should increase in the coming games now that his injury appears to be behind him.

In the Southwest Division, the Spurs are only 4.5 games behind the first-place Pelicans.

They’ve now dropped five straight games, including a 123-92 road loss to the Lakers on Sunday. The Spurs shot 39% from the field and 20% from beyond the arc.
