Deron Williams played 32 minutes in a loss to the Pelicans on Monday, finishing with 24 points on 9-of-18 from the field to go with 3-of-4 from the line, three 3-pointers, two boards, nine dimes, one steal and two turnovers.
Williams is having a mini-resurgence with the down-trodden Mavs this year. In his last seven games, D-Will is in the top-70. During that span, he’s averaging 18.7 points, 1.9 treys, 0.9 steals, while shooting 45.6% from the field and 92.3% from the line. Until that next injury comes along, he’s hushing his naysayers.
