Williams mustered only eight points (3-21 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, two rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes during the Clippers' 129-110 loss to the Warriors in Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Friday.
Williams picked the worst possible time to go cold from the floor, as his typical offensive contributions were sorely missed in the 19-point loss. The veteran guard had keyed the Game 5 upset with a spectacular 63.2 percent showing from the floor in that contest, but Friday saw a highly untimely return to his Game 4 struggles, when Williams had drained just 20.0 percent of his 10 shot attempts in that contest. The 32-year-old did enjoy another strong season overall, averaging 20.0 points, 5.4 assists and 3.0 rebounds. He'll look to help the Clippers take the next step in the 2019-20 campaign.
Williams furnished 33 points (12-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-9 FT), 10 assists and four rebounds across 34 minutes during the Clippers' 129-121 win over the Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday.
Williams exploded for a sensational performance off the bench, spearheading the second Clippers upset of the series at Oracle Arena. The veteran sharpshooter had endured a forgettable night in Game 4, when he'd drained just two of 10 attempts on his way to a modest 12 points over 30 minutes. Therefore, Wednesday's resurgence was a particularly welcome sight, and it gave Williams the starring role in both of Los Angeles' wins during the series. He'll look to keep the hot hand going in another do-or-die scenario in Game 6 on his Staples Center home floor.
Williams finished with 36 points (13-22 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-10 FT), 11 assists, two rebounds, two steals, and one block in 33 minutes during Monday's 135-131 victory over the Warriors.
Williams was red-hot down the stretch, leading the Clippers to an improbable victory over the Warriors in Game 2 of their playoff series. The Clippers recorded their largest ever come-from-behind victory after having trailed by 31 points midway through the third quarter. Williams is known as one of the best closers in the league and that was certainly evident here. The series will now head to the Staples Center for Game 3 on Thursday. Despite heading home with all the momentum, the Clippers will need to be wary of a Warriors team that typically responds very well after performances such as this.
Williams went for 25 points (11-21 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 32 minutes during Saturday's 121-104 Game 1 loss to the Warriors.
Williams was superb, falling one assist shy of a double-double while pouring in plenty of points. Despite remaining in a reserve role, Williams is still the team's top option offensively, and he'll need to continue producing at a high level if the Clippers are going to have any chance of making this a competitive series.
Williams is probable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
The veteran is expected to play during the Clippers' regular-season finale, but the team is still offering some wiggle room in his designation. More information may arrive following LA's morning shootaround.
Williams amassed 13 points (4-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, five assists, three steals, and two blocks in 27 minutes during Sunday's 131-104 loss to Golden State.
Williams shifted into the starting lineup Sunday with both Danilo Gallinari (ankle) and Pat Beverley (hip) on the sidelines. Williams is almost a certainty to receive the sixth-man of the year again thanks to another stellar season. The Clippers are going to want to try and avoid the Warriors in the first round of the playoffs and will need to win their final game against the Jazz while also needing other results to go their way. Nonetheless, it has certainly been a positive season for the Clippers who despite trading away a number of key players, have been one of the more impressive teams over the backend of the season.
Williams will start Sunday's game against the Warriors.

He's led the Clippers' bench in an impressive season for the team, and Williams is enjoying the best two-year stretch of play in his career. In two seasons with the Clippers, he's averaged over 20 points and five assists both seasons -- the only two times he's done that in 14 seasons.
Williams posted 14 points (3-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-11 FT) and seven assists across 23 minutes in Wednesday's 135-103 loss to the Rockets.
Williams was mostly a non-factor on Wednesday, as the league's best sixth man's production became unnecessary as the game got out of hand. You can expect Williams to be pivotal as they enter the playoffs, as the team expects to squeeze every penny of value from the 3-year, $24 million contract he signed to begin the season.

The veteran was as consistent as ever during the month, averaging 21.7 points on 46.3 percent shooting across 27.1 minutes per contest. Williams continues to enjoy robust usage (16.2 shot attempts per March contest), a trend that should persist for what remains of the regular season.
Williams (rest) is not listed on the Clippers' injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Williams sat out Thursday's loss to the Bucks for rest purposes, so his absence from the injury report is unsurprising. Barring any new information, he will presumably resume his usual role with the team.
Williams will be rested for Thursday's game against the Bucks, Brad Turner of the LA Times reports.
The good news is there's no injury here, as it looks like the Clippers are simply holding Williams out for load management purposes with a playoff berth sealed up. Expect the veteran to return for at least one of the team's two games this weekend. The Clippers play host to Cleveland on Saturday and Memphis on Sunday.
Williams finished with 20 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven assists and four rebounds across 30 minutes in the Clippers' win over the Timberwolves on Tuesday.
Williams played his usual allotment of minutes off the bench on Tuesday, hitting 20 points once again. He's played a pivotal role off the bench for the Clippers and should continue to see heavy usage down the stretch.
Williams produced 29 points (9-20 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and two steals across 32 minutes in the Clippers' win over the Knicks on Sunday.
Williams burned the Knicks for 29 points, including five-of-seven shooting from beyond the arc. Williams continues to get buckets off the bench for a Clippers team that's surprisingly headed to the playoffs. He's averaging 22.6 points in the month of March.
Williams posted 25 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 27 minutes in the Clippers' 119-116 win over the Nets on Sunday.
The final three points of Williams' team-high scoring tally were the most important, as he drained a 28-footer from the top of the key as time expired for the win. It was the fifth performance of more than 20 points in the last six games for Williams, who's enjoying one of his more efficient shooting months in March with a 46.4 percent success rate from the floor. The 14-year veteran is as steady as ever as the fantasy postseason approaches, as he's now averaging 20.4 points, posting a career high in assists (5.2) and equaling a career best in rebounds (3.0).
Williams totaled 34 points (14-20 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, and four rebounds in 23 minutes during Monday's 140-115 victory over Boston.
Williams surpassed Dell Curry as the highest scoring sixth-man in history Monday, ending the game with 34 points on 14-of-20 shooting. This just solidifies Williams claim as arguably the best ever sixth-man to play the game. He has been dynamic for the Clippers since the trade deadline and with the team firmly in the playoff picture, he should be in for more big nights down the stretch.
Williams amassed 40 points (13-24 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 10-15 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, and four steals in 34 minutes during Friday's 118-110 victory over the Thunder.
Williams was on fire Friday, ending the contest with 40 points, including four triples. Despite coming off the bench, Williams is the clear priority on the offensive end when he is on the floor. He shot only 66 percent from the free-throw line which was a bit of a drag given his 15 attempts. The Clippers appear as though they are a very real chance of making the playoffs which should mean continued playing time for the veteran.
Williams contributed 21 points (8-15 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal across 30 minutes Monday in the Clippers' 113-105 win over the Lakers.
Williams was one of the few rotation players left standing after the Clippers cleared out nearly half their roster prior to the Feb. 7 trade deadline and has seen his production benefit slightly because of it. In the Clippers' 11 games since the deadline, Williams is averaging 21.5 points and 5.7 assists while continuing to deliver elite production from the charity stripe (6.5 makes per game at an 85.5 percent clip).
Williams tallied 21 points (7-23 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 assists, three rebounds and three steals across 34 minutes in the Clippers' 121-112 win over the Mavericks on Monday.
Williams' 30.4 percent success rate from the floor underscores how much trouble he had finding the net, but the combination of sheer volume and a strong showing from the free-throw line helped propel him to his second straight 20-point-plus outing. The veteran continues to be a desirable fantasy asset due to his typically elevated usage levels off the bench, but the numbers imply Williams isn't exactly maximizing his opportunities this season -- his lowest shooting percentage (42.1) since the 2015-16 campaign has helped lead to a near-three-point drop from last season's career-high average of 22.6 points.
Williams scored a game-high 24 points (6-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 11-11 FT) while adding two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 24 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 123-96 loss to the Nuggets.
The veteran guard didn't get much help in this one -- only two other Clippers even managed to score in double digits. Williams is now averaging 25.6 points, 5.6 assists, 2.4 boards and 1.8 three-pointers through nine games in February as the team tries to hang onto a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
