Ingram, Williamson lead Pelicans past Cavaliers 116-104

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Lonzo Ball launched a long two-handed chest pass from one foul line to the other, where Zion Williamson caught it in stride above his head, took a step and dunked with two hands.

That play, less than three minutes into Friday night's contest against the Cleveland Cavaliers, seemed to symbolize the Pelicans' playoff push being kicked into high gear.

Brandon Ingram scored 29 points, Williamson added 24, and New Orleans defeated Cleveland 116-104 on Friday night.
