NEW ORLEAN – Zion Williamson arrived as a great spectator for Halloween Week, sitting in the last seat of the Pelicans bench, next to the main seats.

The Pelicans star wore a very large bright yellow, hooded sweater and had a very good seat to watch his former Duke friend RJ Barrett at the Smoothie King Arena for a terrific, career-high show for the Nicks.

Barrett beat Williamson, who was idle in a tumultuous game, 35-0, as the Knicks continued their hectic start and won 123-117.

The 35 points was the highest in Barrett’s career. Barrett played brilliantly throughout the game, scoring 12 of 18 and 6 of 8 from a 3-point distance and adding eight rebounds and six assists, but he was the only one of the Pelicans late in the final two minutes. held the blow. The Nicks went 5-1.

Barrett hit a big 3 point, with 1:40 left, after the Pelicans halved the Nicks ’score to keep the crowd quiet. The Nicks hit 19-33 from a 3-point distance.

RJ Barrett, who scored 35 points, will have a 123-117 victory over the Pelicans while Nickeil defeated Alexander-Walker.

A drive Barrett then fed the Taj Gibson for a layup with 1:05 left after the Pelicans arrived in two more. Barrett, meanwhile, outscored him with 3 points with 43 seconds left and put the Nicks ahead 119-112, after which he was mobbed by his teammates.

The Pelicans are struggling 1-6 – a seasonal rehabilitation after Williamson’s leg surgery. On Saturday, the Pelicans rested after waking up “painfully” after losing to their other star, Brandon Ingram, at the Kings on Friday, rookie head coach Willie Green said.

Barrett and the ever-growing Williamson are traversing different paths, the Knicks ’swimmer is slowly emerging as a future All-Star and two-way player, and the Pelicans’ injury history is terrifying. ‘lib is going on.

Barrett’s gems followed a stunning 20-point trip to Chicago, and DeMar stopped the game in defense against DeRozan.

No. 1 Williamson in the 2019 draft is yet to make his season debut. The half-empty stands were a reflection of the fans waiting for the return of the next player listed as Michael Jordan or LeBron James.

The Nicks, meanwhile, made their best start since the 2012-13 season, when they won 6-0. The work schedule can be made non-rough, two games against Magic and one against Pelicans and below-.500 Celtics.

The Knicks came out with a blast, with goalkeepers Kemba Walker, Julius Randle and Barrett jumping 14-3 three minutes later to cover an early 3 second.

For most of the first half, the Nicks maintained a comfortable lead, while Barrett put in a great performance. He even tied up with Mitchell Robinson for a street-oop. Barrett scored 10 points – just like Randle and Walker. The Nicks hit 9-18 from a 3-point distance in the section, but eliminated a big advantage.

Before the game, Green said of the Knicks: “I’m amazed they shot 50 3 seconds. Usually no team does that. [Tom Thibodeau] coaches. “It’s great for a league where the Knicks play as well as they do.”
