Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams had his famous last words during Monday night’s overtime loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In the fourth quarter, Williams had a chance to give Boston the lead and win with less than 1 second left on the clock. Williams was fouled as he went up for a shot, and Cavaliers star Donovan Mitchell was guaranteed to make both shots.

The game went into overtime and Cleveland won 118-114.
“He gave us both, but I didn’t send Marcus Smart for advice, I think about that,” Mitchell said after the game. “Thank God he missed them and we won.”
Mitchell scored 40 points on 14-of-34 shooting in 47 minutes. He had 11 rebounds and four assists. Evan Mobley had 15 points and 17 rebounds in 41 minutes. Lamar Stevens came off the bench and added eight points and eight rebounds. Stevens was a plus-18 during the game.

Cleveland coach JB Bickerstaff gave Stevens a lot of credit after the game. Stevens entered the game trailing Cleveland by 14 points, but made the most of his minutes.
“We couldn’t have won this game without Lamar,” Bickerstaff said. “It changed the tone, the physique, the effort.”
