With only a little over two weeks in the regular season it’s time to make that final push. If you are in need of three ball and assists down the stretch, Lou Williams just may be your man.
Analysis: Despite getting his average number of minutes recently, Lou Williams is playing some sneaky good ball. His points and steals are up over his season averages over the last few weeks but that’s not what your looking for, you need some assists to go along with those threes. Well, Williams has hit at least two threes a game in four of his last six games with a free throw percentage around eighty percent in that stretch. Williams has also reached four assists in four of his last six games and dropping 24 points twice in that span. Granted, he isn’t setting the league on fire but this deep into the season you don’t have many options to improve your squad, every little bit helps. Williams’ point guard and shooting guard eligibility only add to his value at this point.
Projection: Expect more of the same as Williams will help the Sixers secure the sixth seed in the eastern conference. He’ll give you 14 points and a steal pretty much every night but it’s the threes, assists and free throw percentage that make him so valuable in deep leagues right now.
