Williams made a tremendous spin move to create an open look at the basket from midcourt and he buried the long-range shot to give the crowd an exciting moment to cheer for heading into the break.
His ball-handling on this play to create the open shot is something I'd like to see more of from Williams this season. He has a ton of talent and ball-handling is an underrated part of his game.
The Hawks forward is a versatile player who can play the shooting guard or the small forward, and although he has range from the three-point line, he has been inconsistent in his outside shooting throughout his career.
After being selected with the second overall pick in the 2005 NBA draft by the Hawks, Williams has been a disappointment and came into this season with something to prove.
Even though it's just a lucky half-court shot, this moment could be a turning point for Williams. It's always a good thing when you see the bounces go your way, especially for a young player.
Williams has fantastic talent and it was clear he needed more time at North Carolina to develop his skills before coming to the NBA.
However, with a few years of experience under his belt now, Williams is poised to have a breakout season and discover his amazing talent.
If Williams improves his game this season, Atlanta will be a tough team to beat come playoff time.
