Mo Williams, perhaps empowered by a big 3-pointer he made in the final seconds of regulation to put Portland up by 1 against Houston on Sunday, got into it with Rockets rookie Troy Daniels after the Blazers’ 123-120 win in overtime of Game 4.
Williams could be seen walking up to Daniels after the game ended and getting close enough to the point that he bumped Troy on the shoulder. He obviously said something to Daniels, because the youngster said something back.
A smiling Williams was pulled away by his teammates.
Williams needs to keep himself in check. Sure, he made a big 3-pointer with 18 seconds left, but he was only 3-of-11 and 1-of-6 on threes in the game. Daniels had 17 points in 21 minutes, including a 4-of-5 performance from long range. He also made three clutch free throws in overtime.
If Daniels wants to get revenge on Williams, he should have just reminded Mo of how he choked in the 2009 Eastern Conference finals with the Cavs, allowing Dwight’s Magic to beat Cleveland.
