Summer League #4: Marcus Williams

Didn't realize there was a game tonight, but Marcus Williams apparently knew about it.  He came out of his summer hibernation, found himself in the starting lineup, and had 23 points and 10 rebounds.  The Clips kept OJ Mayo quiet through much of the game and he scored 20 points on 22 shots.  Looks as though Thornton did the same thing he's been doing, Fazekas' line looks a little bit better, and Jordan had 3 baskets (dunks?) on 3 shots and 5 rebounds.  Clips got off to a fast start and led throughout.

It's good to see Williams get untracked.  He seemed a little lost and forgotten in the first 3 games as he failed to crack the starting lineup.  He might have fared better on the whole if Thornton hadn't been around, and it doesn't seem that there's not a lot that Thornton is getting out of this except some exercise.  But maybe there are some little things that he's working on and the Clips are have been going with a fairly standard lineup, so he could be creating opportunities for other guys, but that's not really his game. 

There's one more game and it would be nice to see Williams and the Clips play well again.  Williams was a prime candidate going into the summer league to fill the QRoss/backup SF/SG defender slot, which will be an important role for the Clips this year.  Summer success means nothing, but shooting blanks in summer is no good either.  So this is a tiny bit of good news.

Big numbers for Kevin Love again, by they way: 18/17.  The kid might do alright.
