“I just didn’t want to foul, make a stupid play. Just tried to show my hands. I knew that he was going to try to shoot that shot. And it went in, man, so you’ve just got to tip your hat to him,” Williams said.

Brandon Ingram led the Pelicans with 34 points. He said he was in “disbelief” after the shot.
