Williams poured in 14 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) during Thursday's 135-102 victory over the Celtics in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.
Williams was chucking away during his time on the court, posting his best shooting night of the postseason since Game 4 of the first round against the Pacers and draining his first three-pointers of the conference finals. The veteran point guard has proven to be a solid addition to the Cavs second unit and offers the security of an abundance of starting experience in the event of an injury to Kyrie Irving. As it has thus far in the playoffs, Williams' role in the Finals will likely fluctuate depending on game script, but he's likely to see minutes in the teens at a minimum in the majority of games.
