Duke Blue Devils forward Zion Williamson

Duke Blue Devils freshman phenomenon Zion Williamson has done his fair share of incredible performances so far during his first (and certainly unique) collegiate season. While the most popular comedies are understandably the dunks that shake the edge, a match that made Saturday against the Cavaliers of Virginia that attracted attention was different. In particular, due to the fact that he arrived at the defensive end.

Such as Eric Hubbs of Barstool Sports he showed, Williamson made a block that was probably one of the most athletic games ever. At the very least, it was the wildest manifestation of athletics in recent memory.

The game was so incredible (especially in slow motion) that it has aroused reactions of all kinds from basketball fans. One who stood out and could have summed up better was a tweet that called Zion's game "Straight from Space Jam."

It's hard to argue with this analysis, and this was just one of the many tweets that played during the highly successful defensive game. Here are some of the best reactions that occurred after Williamson's blockade during the Duke's victory.


Twitter Reacts to the huge blockade of Zion Williamson


Zion Williamson has another impressive representation

The Blue Devils started in the second half for a 81-71 victory over Cavaliers n. 3 in what has proved to be a fairly complete effort. While RJ Barrett scored 26 impressive points with seven rebounds and three assists, Williamson was the team's second to score with 18 points in 6-up 8. He also tacked an impressive number of additional stats to fill the box's score.

Zion's night ended with five rebounds, five assists, three blocks and three steals. He and Barrett have always been protagonists, while the fellow freshmen Cam Reddish (17 points) and Tre Jones (13 points, seven assists, six rebounds) have also had strong demonstrations. It is not surprising to see the Duke rolling along with their young and talented core, and this group has the appearance of a contender for the legitimate championship this season.

To make the 21-2 record of the Blue Devils even more impressive, they had this level of success by playing with a very short bench. Williamson, Barrett, Reddish and Jones have an average of 27.1 minutes or more per game. Jack White and Marques Bolden both have an average of 20.4 minutes per game or more, but after that, the drop-off goes to around 13-14 for Javin DeLaurier and Alex O & # 39; Connell. No other Duke player has seen more than 5.5 minutes on average this season.
