NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Zion Williamson capped his long-awaited NBA debut by scoring 17 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and stirring the crowd into a frenzy only to see his team come up short. LaMarcus Aldridge had 32 points and 14 rebounds, DeMar DeRozan added 20 points and the San Antonio Spurs withstood Williamson’s late surge for a 121-117 victory over New Orleans. Williamson had spent the past three months rehabilitating from arthroscopic knee surgery. His fourth-quarter surge included four 3-pointers to go with an alley-oop lay-up, a put-back and a free throw.
