Zion Williamson acknowledged that he has to be better on the defensive end.
“I feel like if I set the tone defensively by getting into my man, forcing a couple turnovers or just making my presence felt … maybe I could help get the team going,” Williamson said. “I feel like maybe I’ve just got to do more.” Zion was a monster on defense at Duke but has shown very little at the NBA level, posting a horrific defensive rating of 114.3 this season. We know it's in there, so hopefully he stays true to his word and locks in on that side of the floor because his offense has been outstanding. 10:06 am (EST)
