    Williamson powers Pelicans past Popovich-less Spurs, 117-99

    Zion Williamson scored 30 points and matched a career high with 15 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans rolled to a 117-99 victory Friday night over the San Antonio Spurs, who were without coach Gregg Popovich. The Spurs had a plan to defend Williamson, but stopping the 6-foot-6, 285-pound forward is another story. “I was on the free throw line and one of the guys on the Spurs was telling another guy, ‘Don’t let him go left,’” New Orleans wing Trey Murphy III said.
