{VIA NBA.COM} Lou Williams’ Consistent Burst of Energy Makes Him Our Pick for the 2014-15 Kia Sixth Man of the Year


Instant offense: Jamal Crawford, James Harden, Jason Terry, J.R. Smith, Ben Gordon — all of them were players in their SMOY seasons who were sizzling-hot by the time they doffed their warm-ups and, once subbed in, saw green lights and good looks in every possession.

Lou Williams has been that type of player, too, for most of his 10 NBA seasons with Philadelphia, Atlanta and Toronto. But in earning NBA.com’s Sixth Man honor in his first season with the Raptors, the undersized gunner added a wrinkle to the role: Consistent offense.

For a player with a career 41.6 shooting percentage, Williams has been exceedingly reliable off the bench for a Toronto team whose primary scorers have had their ups and down. In each month of 2014-15, he averaged between 14.0 points per game (February) and 16.9 (January), before this month’s finishing kick of 21.0 heading into the final two games.
