Williamson

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Rudy Gobert sank two free throws with 6.9 seconds left, giving the Utah Jazz a 106-104 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans in the first game of the NBA’s restart. Gobert had 14 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks. New Orleans led for most of the game and by as many as 16 points. But Brandon Ingram’s 3-point attempt at the horn rimmed out in a bitter end to his 23-point night. Zion Williamson was deemed fit to start after recently returning to practice. But his playing time was limited. He scored 13 points in 15 minutes.
