Williams posted 30 points (11-24 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four assists, one rebound and one steal across 31 minutes in Sunday's 122-109 loss to the Trail Blazers. Williams saw plenty of run despite a move back to the bench, and he was highly efficient while averaging just under a point per minute on the floor. The 31-year-old sharpshooter snapped out of a mini-funk that had encompassed his last three games, as he'd shot 40.0 percent or less in each of those contests. Williams is going to remain a pivotal part of the Clippers' attack regardless of where he's deployed, and an argument could be made that he's at his best when coming off the bench.
Williams will come off the bench in Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints reports. The Clippers have decided to switch up their rotation Sunday night, with Milos Teodosic entering the starting lineup and Williams coming off the bench. Even with the change, the distribution of playing time will likely remain unaffected, with Williams playing a heavy dose in the backcourt despite being a reserve.
Williams scored 18 points (6-16 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding four assists, three steals, a rebound and a block in 38 minutes during Friday's 121-113 loss to the Thunder. It was far from his best shooting performance, but Williams still scored in double digits for an amazing 51st straight game. The 31-year-old is putting the finishing touches on an improbable career season, but he may need to find another gear down the stretch if the Clippers are going to make the playoffs.
Williams scored 26 points (6-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 13-14 FT) while adding five assists and three rebounds in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 112-106 win over the Bulls. He's scored more than 20 points in five of six games to begin the month of March, averaging 22.5 points, 5.8 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.7 three-pointers. Williams has already put together a career-best campaign, but he'll need to at least maintain his current level of play down the stretch if the Clippers are going to reach the postseason.
Williams finished with 25 points (10-22 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds and one steal across 35 minutes in Saturday's 113-105 win over the Magic. Williams logged a second consecutive start at point guard and generated a team-high scoring total. The veteran guard has now eclipsed 20 shot attempts in three of the past four games, as well as the 20-point mark in four of five March contests. The 31-year-old has also drained multiple threes in three straight, and his production figures to only keep trending upward as long as head coach Doc Rivers opts to keep him on the first unit.
