Williams Named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

Posted by Juan Gavasa on November 25, 2014

The National Basketball Association announced Monday guard Lou Williams has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played November 17-23. Williams earned the honours for the first time in his career and joined Chris Bosh (7X), Vince Carter (7X), Mike James, Jalen Rose and Kyle Lowry as the only players in team history to win the award.

Williams helped the Raptors to a 3-0 record last week, averaging 23.7 points off the bench while shooting .526 (10-for-19) from three-point range and a perfect 21-for-21 at the free throw line.

He was the only player in the NBA last week to average 23.0+ points and play less than 25.0 minutes. During Saturday’s 110-93 win at Cleveland, Williams sparked an 18-point comeback with a career-high 36 points. He became the first non-starter in team history to shoot a perfect 15-for-15 at the free throw line.
