Marvin Williams

Game: October 29th Charlotte vs. Milwaukee 108-106

Stats: 19 points, 3 assists, 4 rebounds, 1 steal

Marvin has been in and out of the starting lineup at times lately, but for the first month he was the full-time starter at power forward. Unfortunately, his best effort came during his first game in Charlotte. Williams was signed to stretch the floor by providing three-point shooting at the four spot. During his first game he did just that.

Williams dropped 19 points on Milwaukee and hit 3 of 6 shots from outside. In addition to the three-pointers, he also knocked down 5 mid-range jumpers. On opening night he looked every bit like the stretch-four he was supposed be.

He has fallen off significantly since then. He is averaging only 6.4 points per game and has struggled guarding bigger power forwards. That struggle has caused Steve Clifford to experiment with Cody Zeller in the starting lineup.

Despite his struggles he is still shooting around league average from three-point range (he’s shooting 36.8 percent), which leads the team. Perhaps playing with the second unit next to a rim protector like Bismack Biyombo will mask his defensive issues, and allow him to flourish offensively.
