Lou Williams managed to hit the 20-point mark for the third straight game on Wednesday night but went just 6-of-18 in the process, adding seven assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes of work.
Williams has now scored 20 or more in 16 of the last 17 games but his monstrous run is coming to an end. He’s still averaging 29.2 points per game in January and might be a little ticked off about the All-Star snub (to be clear — he is very much ticked off), so owners might want to think about exploring the trade market if he posts another huge line in the coming days. While he’s a lock for top-75 value this season, his current run presents a great opportunity to trade up for a solid top-50 asset. If you can afford to part with his points, Williams might net you someone who fills a few needs. Your mileage may vary, however, and there’s nothing wrong with holding onto Sweet Lou all year.
