Los Angeles Clippers vs Philadelphia 76ers
Lou has been great since he returned from his injury as he averages a bit over 22 points along with 6.6 assists in those last 6 games. The Sixers had tons of trouble against similar players since they lack a small guard with a solid defense. JJ Redick is a great contributor and a key player for the Sixers offensively but it's a double-edged sword as he is a liability in defense while things are not even remotely close to being better, defensively, when his backup Shamet is on the court.
Lou Williams, coming from the bench, will have time against Shamet and the Sixers' bench early in this game where he is expected to do a lot of damage, while as the Clippers' 'closer' he will be their main weapon late in the game especially if this game stays close as expected.
*Funny little story: Lou Williams has a little history with Butler from last season, where Lou despite his great season did not make it to the all-star game and Butler, who made it, opted to rest instead of taking part in that game. That lead to a trolling twitter post by Lou and a response/ challenge for a 1v1 from Butler to sort it out. lol.
OK, Butler is not expected to be on the much smaller Lou in this game but its interesting either way.
Lou is in great shape, he has a great edge in this game and he should be among the top scorers, if not the top, for his team tonight.
