2019 top overall pick Zion Williamson denied the slam dunk attempt of Houston Rockets guard Russell Westbrook.
The hype is indeed real for Williamson as he continues to bring great performance in his rookie season.
Most NBA fans are now aware that the former Duke Blue Devils standout can stuff the stat sheet with points and rebounds. Yet, in their game versus the Rockets, the 19-year-old forward showcased his blocking ability as rejects the supposed to be another rim-rocking attack coming from the 2017 NBA Most Valuable Player.
However, the last laugh went to Westbrook and James Harden as Houston topped the New Orlean Pelicans, 117-109.
Williamson had 21 points and 10 rebounds while Westbrook flirted with triple-double production with 22 points, six rebounds, and seven assists.
