VFL Grant Williams NBA Finals Highlights and Statistics

    by -

    Former Tennessee forward Grant Williams has his first NBA Finals experience in just his third year of playing in the NBA. While Williams’ Boston Celtics didn’t take the coveted Larry O’Brien Trophy, the former Tennessee standout did have some memorable moments.

    Williams and Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green made early headlines as the two found a rivalry on the court. Williams and Green jawed back and forth throughout the entire six-game series, but still showed sportsmanship and respect with a post-series conversation and hug after game six. The quick rivalry did provide for some great moments, though, especially in game three.

    Williams’ best game of the postseason came against Milwaukee in game seven as he put up 27 points on seven made three-pointers.
