In his first game in San Francisco, Zion Williamson sure didn't dissapoint.

The 19-year old rookie looked like the most dominant player on the floor all night as he helped lead the Pelicans to victory over the Dubs. He finished the game with 28 points on 13-of-20 shooting while grabbing a whopping 6 offensive rebounds.

Entering the fourth quarter, the Warriors were tied 77-77. Unfortunately, Zion Williamson can fly and Jrue Holiday shot 9-of-11 in the second half.

Jordan Poole has looked like a completely different player as of late compared to earlier in the season. He started at point guard tonight and finished the game with 18 points and 5 assists.

Oakland's own Juan Toscano-Anderson had a career-high 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting. He's making the most of his opportunity since being called up from the Santa Cruz Warriors.

Making his Golden State Warriors debut tonight was Dragan Bender. The 4th overall pick of the 2016 draft officially signed a 10-day contract with the Warriors Sunday morning. Bender last played for the Milwaukee Buck's G-League team.

He finished tonight's game with 6 points and 5 rebounds.
