Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash knows what he’s up in opposition to.
In talking to reporters forward of Wednesday’s game between the Nets and the Unusual Orleans Pelicans, Nash mentioned Pelicans neatly-known particular person Zion Williamson is a “historically gifted player.”
Williamson is on the verge of an NBA file coming into Wednesday, as he tied Shaquille O’Neal’s file for consecutive video games with at the least 20 functions on 50 percent shooting in Tuesday’s game in opposition to Atlanta. If he does the identical in opposition to the Nets, that will be his 26th straight.

At finest 20, Williamson has a variety of time to be taught making extra historical past, too.
