The Latest: Lou Williams wins Sixth Man of Year award


SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on the NBA Awards show in Santa Monica, California (all times local):

6:55 p.m.

Lou Williams has won the Sixth Man of the Year at the NBA Awards for the second season in a row and third time in his career.

The guard also won last year with the Los Angeles Clippers. His first honor came in 2015 with Toronto.

Williams beat out teammate Montrezl Harrell, with whom he formed the highest-scoring bench duo in NBA history last season, and Domantas Sabonis of Indiana.

Williams became the career leader in points off the bench during the season. He said backstage that this year’s award is different because he went into the season wanting a third honor to cement his legacy in coming off the bench throughout his career.
