Clippers' Lou Williams: Posts 35 points off the bench

Williams recorded 35 points (14-33 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-6 FT), eight assists, six rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 44 minutes in Thursday's 141-133 double overtime loss versus the Celtics.

With Patrick Beverly (groin) out and Paul George (hamstring) only able to log 14 minutes in this game, Williams, per usual, stepped up in the All-Star's absence. The 35 points are a new season high for the guard and he has now eclipsed 30 points on five occasions this season. If George misses any time following the All-Star break, Williams will be a must-start in both daily and season-long formats.
