Derrick Williams’ Confidence Soaring
Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams returned home to Los Angeles for Thursday’s game against the Lakers not exactly a changed man but feeling differently for sure.
“Just more confident really,” he said.
His statistics in his past five games — 18.8 points and 10.6 rebounds — tell part of the story.
In the past two weeks, Williams has delivered the double-doubles — three 20-point, 10-rebound games in his past five entering Thursday’s game.
Williams credits (Kevin) Love’s biggest attribute — rebounding — for his recent play. “Rebounding really is what got me going,” he said.
