The two faces of Mo Williams
I'm working on a post that will attempt to determine the productive ceiling of Bucks PG Mo Williams. In the process I ran across a statistic that was so mindboggling it deserved its own post.
Mo Williams played in 58 games last year. In those 58 games, the team was 27-31. In the 27 games the team won, Williams had an excellent Eff48 of 25.56. In the 31 games they lost, he had an anemic Eff48 of 15.43. That is a staggering discrepancy in production, unmatched by any other Buck.
The "Mo Williams Barometer" was even more pronounced in the post season. In the one game the Bucks won, Williams had an amazing night, recording an Eff48 of 58.32. In the four games they lost he barely showed up, collectively recording an embarrasing Eff48 of 5.02. 58.32 one game, 5.02 in the other four. How is that even possible?
It almost makes you ask "Will the real Mo Williams please stand up?" I will further explore his maddening inconsistencies in the aforementioned upcoming post.
