    Lou Williams Wins 2019 NBA 6th Man of the Year over Harrell and Sabonis

    Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams is the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year for the second straight season and the third time in his career.

    Williams beat out teammate Montrezl Harrell and Indiana Pacers big man Domantas Sabonis for the award.

    Monday's honor further solidifies Williams' status as the best sixth man in the league. At every one of the six stops in his NBA career, the 32-year-old has consistently provided high-volume scoring off the bench.

    Some might have questioned whether Williams would continue to be the player who averaged a personal-best 22.6 points in 2017-18. While his scoring average dropped slightly, he's so far outperforming the three-year, $24 million extension he signed with Los Angeles in February 2018.

    Williams appeared in 75 games, averaging 20.0 points and a career-high 5.4 assists while shooting 42.5 percent from the field. He also shot a respectable 36.1 percent from beyond the arc.

    According to, the Clippers had a 4.4 net rating when Williams was on the floor. That number was minus-2.6 when he was on the bench.
