Nicolo Melli scored 10 points on Friday to go along with six rebounds as the Pelicans beat the Wizards on Friday evening.
Melli went 2-for-2 from long range, which is mostly what he is called upon to do (make threes). The rookie played 18 minutes on Friday, one more than his season average of 17. With Zion Williamson (rest) sitting this one out, there was more scoring opportunities for Melli. He will slide back into his normal role off the bench when Williamson returns.
