Rob Williams' defense, screens, rebounding and controlled blocks evident vs. Knicks
.@rob_williamsIII filled up boxscore last night with 4 points, 7 boards, 3 assists, 2 steals and one block. Really solid start to the season for him.— Tomek Kordylewski (@Timi_093) October 27, 2019
Aside from rolling to the basket and staying active on defense, he's been also setting some good hard screens. Full highlights: pic.twitter.com/6oS31YELj4
Rob got the starting nod against the New York Knicks and came through. He was originally labeled by some as unmotivated, but you don't get to be a 2-time SEC Defensive Player of the Year being apathetic. He was on the floor versus New York for 21 minutes, and his versatile stat line (4P/7R/3A/2S/1B) showed only part of the story.
Robert Williams (6) and Grant Williams (5) combined for 11 screen assists last night against the Knicks and Celtics got 31 points off those screens, including Kemba Walker hitting five of his seven 3-pointers with their help.— Tomek Kordylewski (@Timi_093) October 27, 2019
One more thing. Ron needs a new nickname. TIMELORD doesn't work anymore. It's early in the morning, so I don't have any immediate ideas. Any thoughts from our readers?
