Last night was easily the highlight of CJ Williams young NBA career. The former NC State guard hit the game winning three pointer with 9 seconds left on the clock.
Williams played a career high 37 minutes, and was extremely efficient with those minutes. He finished with 15 points on 5 of 7 shooting from the field (3 of 4 from three, 4 steals, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks.
“I’ve made that shot before, just a rhythm dribble to my left, and once we got that offensive rebound, I felt the momentum and the excitement of the moment.” – C.J. Williams
“I think his confidence has grown offensively. I think C.J. Williams was an NBA player when he walked on our team. He definitely plays defense and does all the little things,” said Doc Rivers. (NBA)
Williams didn’t get a bucket of ice water poured on him, but a small plastic cup did the trick.
