We all were shocked at the Toyota Center — Is that Terrence Williams at the scorers table checking in? In the first quarter? In a huge game against the Clippers?
It was. Kevin McHale mixed it up on Sunday, turning to a guy early in the game that he has kept out of his rotation for much of the season. In fact, a couple weeks ago Williams said he wasn’t going to return to Houston, and then clarified those comments. The Rockets coach said he was rewarding the 6-foot-6 guard/forward with playing time because he has been “practicing really hard.”
For his part, Williams played 14 minutes and struggled shooting the ball, going just 1-8 from the field. However, he was aggressive and did a nice job finding open teammates (check out this pass to Scola). Here are his thoughts after the game on returning to the court for the Rockets.
