Williams, a 13-year NBA veteran,averaged35.0 pointsand 4.8 assists, while shooting 45.7percent from three-point range and 96.7percent from the free-throw line, as the Clippers went 4-0 last week.

The highlight of which was Williams' 50-point performance in a win over the Warriors on Jan. 10. It was the most points by a Clipper player in a single game since Charges Smith dropped 52 on Dec. 1, 1990.

Why not? BINGO!
