Williams Extends Double-Digit Scoring Streak to Ten Games
Alan Williams Records Double-Double vs Trail Blazers
Alan Williams only had four career games scoring 10 or more points prior to the All-Star break, but with the Suns new push to play the younger players, he has managed to score in double-digits every game since.
Williams’ double-digit streak was extended to ten straight games on Sunday after putting up 12 points against the Trail Blazers.
“I think he did a great job changing the game, impacting the game, giving us a chance to fight, to see if we have a chance to win towards the end of the game,” Head Coach Earl Watson said. “So we’re excited about that.”
Highlights: Suns vs Trail Blazers
In the past ten games, Williams and Tyler Ulis (10 points, 6 assists) have turned into a dynamic duo off of the bench.
“I think we just both see the game in the same light,” Alan Williams said. “He’s a tremendous point guard and I think that’s been shown since the All-Star break. He gets guys in the right spot and I’m one of those guys that gets to interact and work with him. So it’s been a lot of fun playing with him.
Williams grabbed 10 rebounds in just the second half to notch his seventh double-double in the past ten games, 11th for his career.
Despite 28 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists from Devin Booker, the Trailblazers ultimately pulled away at the end of the game winning 110-101.
