Mo Williams scored an NBA season best 52 points tonight in a Timberwolves win over the Pacers Tuesday night. In turn he set the franchise single-game record, breaking Corey Brewer’s mark of 51 set last season. Call it a guess, but it’s doubtful too many players establish a new career-high for points in their 13th season in the league. Of course it helps when shots like the one posted above are dropping for you. Williams finished with six 3-pointers during the 110-101 victory. The Big Lead

That April night, Williams said he reacted to some transgression he wouldn’t specify. “He know what he did,” Williams said repeatedly after the Blazers beat Houston Only Daniels swore he didn’t have any idea what he had done. That’s because Williams later admitted the incident was just a veteran’s tactic, an attempt to fluster a rookie. That night, though, he attributed his actions simply to the “emotion” and “intensity” of the playoffs. “The crazy part about this league is we might be teammates one day,” he told reporters that night, “and I might be going to battle with him just like I’m going with [my team] now.” Funny how the world turns: Suddenly now they are, and he is.

“It’s all in competition and it was all in fun on my part,” Williams said. “He really didn’t do anything to me. He just made a couple of shots and I was like, ‘Where did this kid come from?’ It was like, ‘Let me get in his head, being the veteran I am,’ and I got a lot of attention on me, which was good. It took a lot of attention off my team, off LaMarcus [Aldridge] and Damian [Lillard] and put it on me. I was playing maybe 20 minutes, so I did what I had to do. “But it wasn’t to any point to where we were about to fight.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune
