NEWS: Raptors Guard Lou Williams Wins Sixth Man Of The Year Award! [KingpinTV.net]

Toronto Raptors guard Lou Williams has won the NBA’s Sixth Man Award as the league’s best reserve player.

Williams averaged a career-high 15.5 points in his 10th NBA season, helping Toronto win a franchise-record 49 games.

Williams earned 78 first-place votes and 502 total points from a panel of 130 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada.

Isaiah Thomas of the Boston Celtics finished second with 324 points (33 first-place votes), and two-time winner Jamal Crawford of the Los Angeles Clippers was third with 131 points (eight first-place votes).

Williams came off the bench in all 80 of his appearances and averaged 25.2 minutes a game. He led or tied for the team lead in scoring 18 times, second most in the league for a reserve. The Raptors went 14-4 in those games.

The 28-year-old also led the Raptors in free throw percentage (86.1) and made a career-high 152 three-pointers, nearly double his previous high of 88 set with the 76ers in 2010-11.
