Mo Williams is good. So the dude fought off the Clippers jinx... sprained his ankle in his first game in a Clippers uniform and actually came back in and played well. I am a little concerned about the ankle, but I thought he was very impressive. I kept hearing that Mo is not the playmaker that Baron Davis is, and that may turn out to be true, but the guy can pass and set things up. Mike Smith kept saying that VDN should pull him because he was playing on one foot, but he kept him in because he could see that he could control the team. He was a leader out there on his first day. When Bledsoe was in there, turnovers were immediately up and the offense was chaos.
I think Mo Williams may be the perfect point for this team. Clearly the lob is still in play with him. He can set up Blake and Deandre, he can feed Kaman in the post, and he can hit a 3 way more effectively than Baron could. The key is for the Clips to get some chemistry. Once EJ gets healthy, that will be a fun backcourt to watch along with Griffin. I also believe Kaman will be an important piece because of his solid shot and good post up game.
Another loss to a bad team tonight, but things look promising!
