Give credit where credit is due. Williams has had his critics since joining the
Jazz. But he showed them again last night that he truly has talent and ability.
It was an impressive performance... and when most of the rest of the team was
struggling. After all, he was a #3 first round lottery pick a few years ago.
Plus, he's a mature, stabilizing force in the locker room. If the Jazz can
keep him without paying too much, they definitely should.I disagree
with Corbin concerning his comment about assists. Assists really are important
and we simply didn't have many last night. Less than 3 per quarter average.
There is a strong correlation between assists and wins. The team with the most
usually wins. And that makes total sense since basketball ultimately is a team
sport... in-spite of big individual performances. In fact, big individual
performances are usually facilitated by assists from other players.Sharing the ball and getting assists has been the key whenever the Jazz have
been successful this season. As such, that's something they will need to
get back to if they plan on winning with any consistency.
