On the same night the Knicks kept their tank rolling with an eighth straight loss, Zion Williamson dazzled once again.
In his second game back from a knee sprain, Williamson scored 31 points and made the game-winning basket with 31 seconds left to lift Duke to a 74-73 win over rival North Carolina, putting the Blue Devils in the ACC Tournament final. Williamson sunk a putback off his own missed shot to give Duke the lead.
Williamson's 31 points are the third-most he's had in a game this season. He shot 13-for-19 from the field, including 2-for-3 from 3-point range, grabbed 11 rebounds and made all three of his free-throw attempts a night after going 2-for-9 from the line.
And of course, there was a signature dunk, this one the result of a Williamson steal and fast break.

Williamson will play once more before he gets to dazzle in March Madness when Duke plays Florida State for the ACC title on Saturday.
