LAS VEGAS — A third Summer League was the charm for Golden State’s Reggie Williams.
Williams, a D-League call-up who burst onto the scene at the end of last season, averaged 22.6 points in five games, highlighted by a 34-point outburst against John Wall and Wizards on Sunday. This was Williams third invite to Summer League, and he had 18 points at halftime Thursday before tweaking his hamstring and missing the second half. Williams finished his stint in Vegas second in scoring to Cleveland’s J.J. Hickson, who still has who still has three games left.
“My confidence is really high since I played a few games during the season,” said Williams, who averaged 15.2 points in 23 games for the Warriors last season. “It just felt really good out there.”
When asked if there was anything specific he was working on, Williams said the coaches told him to “just play.”
“My ‘just playing’ has got me here so far, so I’m just trying to get better at everything,” Williams said.
