Clippers guard Lou Williams named Western Conference Player of the Week
It's good to be Lou Williams.
The Clippers guard was named the Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday, his second such honor in two weeks.
Williams, a 13-year NBA veteran, averaged 35.0 points and 4.8 assists, while shooting 45.7 percent from three-point range and 96.7 percent from the free-throw line, as the Clippers went 4-0 last week.
The highlight of which was Williams' 50-point performance in a win over the Warriors on Jan. 10. It was the most points by a Clipper player in a single game since Charges Smith dropped 52 on Dec. 1, 1990.
Williams is averaging career-highs in points (23.1), assists (4.9), three-point percentage (41.4) and minutes (31.7) in 2017-18.
