PBA: Williams makes presence felt despite 1-point outing
On top of his solitary point, the former PBA Most Valuable Player ended up grabbing 11 more rebounds and dished out a game-high nine assists.

Kelly Williams scored a grand total of one point in TNT’s win over Alaska Friday in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup.

It should count as the most impactful one-point performance in recent memory.

On top of his solitary point, the former PBA Most Valuable Player ended up grabbing 11 more rebounds and dished out a game-high nine assists.

“We have a lot of scorers so there's not really an emphasis on us having to score, unless we have an advantage somewhere, but we have the right shooters and the right scorers at the right times and tonight that just really happened for me,” Williams said, talking about the general role of the TNT big men to make the right play each time.

“It's really just moving the ball to the right person. If I end up with a lot of assists, it doesn't really matter,” he added.

Still, Williams’ game Friday mirrors TNT’s overall performance as of late.

Recovering from a 0-2 start, the KaTropa have won six of their last seven, including four straight.

In their recent run, while there are key players delivering consistent numbers, TNT has drawn great performances from just about anyone on any given day.

“We're just jelling better. I think every game we've gotten better and better,” Williams said.

“We're just learning. We're taking a step closer to Coach Mark and Coach Bong's vision for the team. Hopefully this continues,” he added.
