Larry Drew hinted after Friday night's disappointing loss in Philadelphia that he might make a change to his starting lineup in an effort to deliver a spark to his team. Drew did just that on Saturday when he inserted Lou Williams into the starting lineup for the first time since the 2009-10 season.
Williams responded by scoring 14 of his 16 points in the first half to help lead Atlanta to a resounding and much needed 92-75 win over the Chicago Bulls. After the game, Williams talked about being back in the starting lineup:
"It was different for me," Williams said. "I'm a rhythm player. Once you get used to a certain role you kind of thrive on that. For me to be thrown into the starting lineup was a little different. Luckily it worked out for us and we'll see what happens in the future."
Lou wasn't short on highlights either as he drained three shots from beyond-the-arc and delivered a facial to former Hawk Kirk Hinrich.
