Money In The Bank, Raptors Lou Williams Beats The Shot Clock against the Hawks


The depth on the Raptors bench has definitely been a key factor in the Raptors 13-2 start to the season. With guys like Patrick Patterson, Greivis Vasquez, James Johnson, Chuck Hayes and Lou Williams on the second unit, this Raptors team has one of the deepest benches in the league.

The Eastern Conference Player of the Week, Lou Williams has been an instant offensive spark off the bench and can hit the big shot when he needs to. When the third quarter started to wind down against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday, Lou-Will did what he does best and hits jumpers at the buzzer.
