Clippers' Williams named Sixth Man of the Year

Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams is the 2017-18 NBA Sixth Man of the Year.

Williams averaged 22.6 points per game off the Clippers' bench, shooting 43.5 percent from the field and 35.9 percent from three.

He scored 35 or more points as a reserve six times this past season, tied for the most such games in a season since the NBA began recording starts in 1970-71.

The rest of the NBA combined for five such games.

Williams signed a three-year, $24 million extension with the Clippers in February.
