Fans of the New Orleans Pelicans must be overjoyed that their superstar is returning this season. Zion Williamson has made a fierce comeback this year after missing the entirety of the previous season due to a foot ailment. In a 104-98 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night, Williamson showed everyone just how dominant he is capable of being.

He had 29 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block at the game’s conclusion. Williamson hit 11 of 16 field goal attempts, which is exceptionally efficient. His accomplishments placed him among the very best players in Pelicans/Hornets history. This was the sixth time he finished a game with at least 25 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists. He joined Chris Paul for the fourth-most points in franchise history, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Due to his problematic injury history, there have been many worries over the past year or so. Williamson’s work ethic, though, had also been questioned before when it was claimed that he showed up to training camp overweight. But with his performance this year, he is allaying those worries.

He also joined a very exclusive group of efficiency after the game on Wednesday, according to Stat Muse. Only three players—including Zion Williamson—have averaged 20+ points per game on shooting percentages of at least 55% throughout their careers. Shaquille O’Neal and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar round out the top three.
