Williamson and Brandon Ingram combined for 57 points against the Kings. The two All-Stars have played well off each other this season.

“It’s definitely a lot of progress that’s been made,” Williamson said. “We both want the same thing, but we haven’t been on the court a lot. The more we’re on the court together, the more our chemistry will build in real-time.”

Added Ingram: “It’s just communication. If somebody has it going, you’re going to let him keep going. I got it going. There’s enough time on the basketball clock and it’s being patient and getting the best shot on the floor. We both have time to attack and play with each other.”
