Reggie Williams, Golden State Warriors Call-Up, is Good. Toldjya So.

I'm just going to throw this out there:

Reggie Williams shot 10-of-16 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line to finish with 28 freakin' points off the bench. 

Plus he had six assists, two steals and a block.

Oh, and he finished with a +9, highest of anybody on the Warriors, so that "he can't play defense" thing was probably a bit overblown.

Wait, you're wondering why I didn't tell you he was going to be great, especially for Golden State? I did (in December):

Williams is my favorite player to watch from this selection, and thus, my favorite for the Golden State Warriors call-up.  He led the nation in scoring twice while playing at VMI and is second only to Almond in the D-League thus far this season.  He's not just a scorer, however.  Williams isn't exceptional at anything, but he really seems to get it - he does whatever it takes and plays within his limitations, which is actually a compliment.  Offensively, his jump shot has improved immensely, which, not surprisingly is why he's shooting 60% from the field.  He also gets out and runs very well, which would fit perfectly in Golden State.  Defensively, he's not exceptionally quick, but he's long enough and crafty enough that he's not going to kill a team defensively.
