Zion Williamson looks to put on a show every time he takes the court. He provides New Orleans Pelicans fans exactly what they came for early on Tuesday night with two ferocious dunks in the first quarter on nearly consecutive possessions.

The first came with seven minutes left in the quarter on a fast break when Lonzo Ball spotted his high-flying teammate sprinting down the court. Ball lofted up the one-handed lob in front of the hoop and Zion took flight then threw it down for the thunderous alley-oop slam.

It didn’t take very long for the Timberwolves to suffer Zion’s powerful wrath once more. Just seconds later, the Pelicans got a steal at halfcourt then fed it once more to Zion as everyone watched him soar for the rim-rattling slam.

Zion has already become one of the NBA’s most entertaining players and he’s only getting better as his rookie season rolls on. It’s only a matter of time until he provides even more jaw-dropping dunks for the highlight reel on Tuesday night.
