Sean Williams: Welcome back to Earth

Tonight marked the return of Sean Williams to Earth.  Playing against a solid team of bigs that are at least as NBA-fringe worthy as himself in Malik Hairston, Andre Brown, and Charles Gaines. Williams played 22 minutes, fouled out, had just two rebounds, had four turnovers, and made three of his eight shots.  Positivies were two blocks and nine points.  For Austin, Hairston went off, scoring 43 points, grabbing eight boards, dishing six assists, and blocking three shots, with just one turnover.  This is how an NBA-assigned player is supposed to play!  Carldell "Squeaky" "Lil' Wayne" Johnson also put together a great performance, scoring 25 points, grabbing six boards, and swiping the ball six times from the other team, playing 45 minutes while being referred to as Squeaky.  Austin won, 124-113.

In the other game we didn't cover tonight, Reno kept up their impressive win-streak, beating Los Angeles 106-97.  Leading the way for Reno was Pat Ewing, Jr., with 19 points and eight boards.  Idaho State's great Jesse Smith had 16 points.  Donte Greene had a much worse game than the night before, shooting 0-for-5 from 3-point land, 6-of-15 overall, just 2-for-6 at the FT line, with four turnovers and five fouls.  The D-League might not be as easy for him as it looked last night.  For Los Angeles, Brandon Heath finally showed why he was invited to Lakers camp, putting up 38 points.  His backcourt mate and teammate with the Lakers in the preseason, Joe Crawford, had 23 points.
