Best Performance of the Night by a former Hawk
Currently, there are about five players in the NBA that are playing better than Lou Williams. With no context involved, Williams is a consistent 20 point, 5 assist, 4 rebound game waiting to happen. When the Lakers play the Warriors in the 1st round of the 2017 playoffs, and Lou Will drop 50, don’t forget who warned you.
