Derrick Williams Stat line
36 minutes, 24 points, 16 boards
About time hes givin minutes. All hes needs is a point. Rubio's back.
Just a big fan of his, seeing he has had DNP's this year is disappointing, however good to see him getting a chance and capitalizing!
I hope he really starts to play well. Would really like to see Minny winning without Love, because he is the biggest whinger in the NBA.
Also should have mentioned Paul George's triple double, I like how he did that just before Granger come's back basically saying THIS IS MY TEAM NOW, I don't see Granger putting up 23:12:12.
Shout Out of the Night #2
Glad Derrick Williams is getting more love, people gave up on him awful quickly, but the fact of the matter is his coach doesn't like him, and without Rubio to get him better looks he was struggling to get out of the doghouse. He's not a guy who will create a shot for himself off the dribble, but he moves well off the ball, has athleticism and can knock down jumpers.
He could probably do with a trade to somewhere like Charlotte, but he's still young enough to break out.
He has worked really hard on his shot, ball control, defense and rebounding, it is nice to see it show during the games. Rubio deserves alot of credit becaue they play so well together. I still think he can pass as a three, and deserves playing time over Dante. Once Love and AK are back, I hope he is the first option off the bench. He could come in for either of them, or even Pek, and slide Love to the five. That could be a hard lineup to gaurd, AK slashing/cuting, Love and Williams spreading out the defense and Rubio doing his thing.
