Coach can coach. No doubt. He knew which buttons to push yesterday, and based on postgame comments, he was obviously thinking in advance of playing Smith at the 5 while they played 55 defense (full court press).
Yet, I was still a bit surprised that Williams played zero 2nd half minutes. We will certainly need him going forward (probably tomorrow against Santos-Silva), so I hope the 5 minutes yesterday was sufficient to knock off the rust.
I think Williams play is critical against Tech and will be big reason why we win
He didn’t appear to be back to “game shape” in his limited minutes yesterday. That gave him some minutes to shake off the rust from not playing for 2 weeks. I look for him to be much better tomorrow and with lots more minutes. We will definitely need him tomorrow, even if only 80% back.
