Williams delivered 30 points (12-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 assists and one rebound across 22 minutes in the Clippers' 134-107 win over the Suns on Wednesday. It's true that when Williams goes into a shooting funk it can be pronounced, and certainly even stretch for multiple games. However, when he's on, he's simply one of the most prolific sources of offense in the entire league. Williams currently fits the latter description, as he's now shooting an eye-popping 61.0 percent over his last two games on his way to an average of 37.5 points during that stretch. The veteran's efficiency was especially through the roof Wednesday, and the scoring tally was his fourth of at least 30 thus far in February. Williams heads into the All-Star break with averages of 26.9 points on 49.2 percent shooting, including 52.0 percent from distance, in his first seven February contests.
Williams scored a season-high 45 points (13-25 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 16-16 FT) while adding four assists, a rebound and a steal in 34 minutes off the bench during Monday's 130-120 loss to the Timberwolves. While the veteran guard did commit seven turnovers, Williams can hardly be faulted for trying to do too much on a night when no other Clipper scored more than 18. It's the fourth time in the last 10 games Williams has dropped 30 or more points, and he's averaging 24.6 points, 6.5 assists, 3.6 boards, 1.7 three-pointers and 0.9 steals over that stretch.
Williams accumulated 10 points (5-10 FG), two rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes Thursday against the Pacers. Williams logged only 17 minutes in a 116-92 loss on the road despite playing 30-plus minutes in three of his previous five contests. This may have been caused by Danilo Gallinari's return from injury and by the shifting of the Clippers' roster following a trade that sent Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott to the 76ers, however. Williams is averaging 19.4 ppg through 49 contests this season and has a proven track record as one of the best role players in the game, so even after Los Angeles acquired some new talent, Williams should remain one of the first players off the bench.
Williams produced 31 points (10-23 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six assists, three rebounds and a block across 32 minutes in the Clippers' win over the Hornets on Tuesday. Williams snagged his second 30-point effort in his last three games, draining five three-pointers and hitting all of his free throws. Williams has been able to get to the rack recently, hitting 39 of 43 attempts from the charity stripe in over his last five games. In that same stretch, he's averaging a healthy 26.6 points per game.
Williams totaled 39 points (13-26 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 11-11 FT), nine assists and three rebounds across 35 minutes in the Clippers' comeback win over the Pistons on Saturday. Williams exploded for a season-high 39 points in Saturday's win, leading a late charge to overcome a 23-point third quarter deficit. The former Sixth Man of the Year is still making big contributions off the bench in his fourteenth season, and he's averaged 28.0 points and 7.7 assists over his last three games.
