Mo's slow start
It was a different game in the second half for the All-Star guard. He had 10 points after halftime, as he made 4 of 9 shots from the field and 2 of 4 from behind the arc. He did miss a free throw, which illustrated the kind of night he was having.
This was just the sixth career playoff game for Williams (the other 5 were in Milwaukee).
Cavs coach Mike Brown would find no fault with Williams' game.
"I thought Mo was solid," Brown said. "His shot wasn’t going in. He got two quick fouls. That might have taken him out of his rhythm.
"He’s still a threat. He struggled knocking down his shot in the first half. In the second half, his rhythm was there."
Despite a subpar game, Williams was excited by the playoff atmosphere.
"It was electric," he said. "It was fun. Once I got the first half out of the way, I was ready to go. I think that the foul trouble kind of hurt me a little bit."
