Clippers’ Patrick Beverley says Lou Williams had the ‘weakest celebration’ after hitting first game-winner
LA Clippers guard Lou Williams just hit the first game-winning buzzer-beater of his career. He quickly ran to the sidelines to celebrate with the crowd. However, according to his teammate Patrick Beverley, the celebration is the weakest he’s ever seen.
In a post-game interview in the locker room, Beverley praised Williams’ leadership and calmness amid tight pressure. But he also slammed the two-time Sixth Man of the Year’s celebration for being “weak,” per Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.
“He hit his first career game winner, and he had the weakest celebration.”

To be fair, it was Lou Williams’ first buzzer-beater to win a game, so maybe he doesn’t really know how to celebrate such momentous feat.

Nevertheless, the win puts the Clippers’ record at 41-30 for eighth place in the Western Conference. They are now six games ahead of the Sacramento Kings who are in ninth place.
Unless something crazy happens, the Clippers seem to have the eighth seed locked. All they have to do is maintain their play and pray that the Kings do not unleash a string of wins.
No one expected the Clips to win this year. Analysts strongly believed that they’re about to enter rebuild mode after trading their best player in Tobias Harris mid-season. But here they are now, just a few games away from sealing their seventh playoff appearance in eight years.
