Williams supplied 23 points (9-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals in 37 minutes during Friday's 115-112 victory over the Mavericks.
Williams struggled to find his stroke early, recording eight points on just 3-of-9 shooting from the field in the first half, though two of those makes came from beyond the arc. The power forward got in a good rhythm in the second half, however, knocking down six of nine field-goal attempts for another 15 points to go along with six boards. He finished with a season-high 23 points on the night, while his eight rebounds were the most he's recorded in a game since Jan. 23 against the Hawks. Williams figures to log another heavy workload Sunday, assuming a number of the Bulls' regulars sit out again with the team's playoff positioning locked up.
