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.
Williams will draw the start in place of Patrick Beverley (hip) at shooting guard. Williams, who is nearly always a candidate to win Sixth Man of the Year, is averaging 17.4 points, 6.0 assists and 2.4 boards over his previous five contests.
