SALT LAKE CITY -- The Dallas Mavericks are fresh off allowing a decent point guard to light them up for 52 points.
"Actually, to me, he’s probably the best point guard in the league right now," Dirk Nowitzki said of the Jazz star. "I’d actually take him over [Chris] Paul and the rest of them because he’s a big guard who can do it all."
Williams had a career-high 41 points against the Mavs a couple of seasons ago. He's also had a 17-assist game against Dallas.
The Mavs won't have to worry about Jazz power forward Carlos Boozer, but they don't get a break with his backup. Utah's Paul Millsap had 32 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists in Friday night's win over the Kings, which Williams missed to attend a family funeral.
