“When you are in the zone, you don’t know the magnitude of the game,” Mo Williams said. “I am glad to put on a show.”
Mo Williams, who was averaging 11 points a game going into last night’s matchup vs the Pacers, bounced back pretty well after missing 8-of-10 shots against the Spurs on Saturday. Mo got into the zone and connected on 19-of-33 shots and 8-of-9 from the free throw line to give himself a career-high 52 points, which also gave the Timberwolves a new franchise-high.
“Mo was unbelievable,” Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. “I have been in the league 17 years and I have had some guys have hot games, but I don’t think I have had anybody where he was at. He did everything.”
The 52 was one more than Corey Brewer’s 51 against the Rockets last season.
“You are just in a zone, you don’t really see anybody,” Williams said. “You just go back to the places when you are in the gym by yourself with your own trainer. You are just shooting shots and it doesn’t matter where the defense is at.”
