The budding relationship between New Orleans Pelicans teammates Lonzo Ball and Zion Williamson took another big step Friday night.

Check out this sweet long-distance alley-oop as Ball feeds Zion perfectly for the highlight reel-worth play.

Pelicans fans were nervous about Zion after his extended absence before his rookie season ever began. But after recovering from the knee injury that kept him out early, the young star has done nothing but wow with insane highlight after insane highlight.

If Williamson can stay healthy, he is going to quickly become one of the biggest stars in the Association.
