Toronto Raptors guard Lou Williams won the NBA’s Sixth Man Award on Monday, honored as the league’s best reserve after averaging a career-high 15.5 points in his 10th season and helping Toronto win a franchise-record 49 games. Williams received 78 first-place votes and 502 points from a panel of 130 sports writers and broadcasters throughout the U.S. and Canada. Isaiah Thomas of the Boston Celtics was second (324 points, 33 first-place votes) and two-time winner Jamal Crawford of the Los Angeles Clippers was third (131, 8). Williams came off the bench in all 80 of his appearances and averaged 25.2 minutes. He led or tied for the team lead in scoring 18 times, second most in the league for a reserve, and hit a team-high 86.1 percent of his free throws. – AP
