Clippers guard Lou Williams wins Sixth Man of the Year award
The second-ever NBA Awards bring forward some of the best players, coaches, and plays, recognizing the best of the best throughout a long 82-game NBA season. TNT televised this awards ceremony in conjunction with the NBA, giving the players the opportunity to celebrate these accomplishments in front of their peers.
SIXTH MAN OF THE YEAR:
WINNER: Lou Williams
Lou-Will had undoubtedly his best NBA season, not only eclipsing the 20-point mark for the first time in his career, but also becoming the first Sixth Man of the Year award winner to score over 20 points per game since Ricky Pierce did so during the 1989-90 season with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Williams posted 22.6 points, 5.3 assists, and 2.5 rebounds for the L.A. Clippers as a one-man deadly punch off the bench, starting in only 19 of his 79 appearances this season.
