Zion Williamson had two huge dunks during a 106-104 Thursday loss night to the Utah Jazz.
After months and months off the court, the NBA returned for real games Thursday, and the New Orleans Pelicans rookie had two monster jams. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Both came off of lobs, and both were incredibly impressive. You can watch each below.

We were told that Zion was going to impress people when he returned to the court. I guess people weren’t messing around at all by saying that.
He might not have played a ton of minutes Thursday night because he was gone from the bubble for awhile, but he still chipped in 13 points.

For anyone who thought Zion had lost a step of athleticism after months of not playing games, you’ve officially been proven wrong.
His bounce is as impressive as it’s ever been and he proved it last night with two huge dunks.
???? This time it’s Zion to Lonzo IN STYLE! #WholeNewGame

It feels great to have basketball back and I can’t wait to see what Zion does next. He’s a human highlight reel.
