HUMAN ERROR?Saturday’s clock malfunction in the final seconds of the Clippers’ victory over the Wizards wasn’t the first time time it seemed to either freeze or move too rapidly at Staples Center. In fact, it was at least the fourth time since 2012 that the clock has either started or stopped incorrectly.It’s happened three times during Kings hockey games, twice allowing them to score a goal in the closing seconds of a period thanks to a slow-starting clock. It happened during games of Jan. 21, 2012 against Colorado; Feb. 1, 2012 against Columbus; and Dec. 10, 2016 against Ottawa.The Clippers appeared to benefit from a quick-starting clock with 1.2 seconds left that denied Washington’s Bradley Beal a winning basket at the buzzer. Referees waved off Beal’s shot, but after a video review, they awarded the ball back to the Wizards with 1.1 seconds left.Marcin Gortat’s shot at the buzzer missed the mark and the Clippers held on to win.After the game, referee Bill Spooner told a pool reporter that his crew timed the initial play on video replay and the clock actually should have been reset to 0.1 seconds, but was mistakenly adjusted to 1.1 seconds for the Wizards’ second attempt at a winner.“You’ve got to excuse my language because I’m going to say verbatim what they said,” Beal said when asked what he was told by the referees when he asked for an explanation. “It’s called the tough (expletive) rule. I don’t really understand it. I don’t get it, man.” Williams stepped up in a big way, and not for the first time this season.Doc Rivers, coach of the injury-depleted Clippers, asked Williams to start five games recently and Williams responded by averaging 24.2 points on 45.6 percent shooting. He scored a season-high 42 points in the Clippers’ victory over the Lakers on Nov. 27, when Griffin was injured late in the game.Overall, Williams is averaging 19.7 points and 4.7 assists, which would mark career highs.No one in the NBA is averaging more points while playing as a reserve than Williams’ average of 18.5. Rivers returned Williams to his role as the Clippers’ sixth man in order to better balance his starting and second units. Make no mistake, though, the Clippers are better with Williams on the floor.“I’ve coached Jamal, so I’ve had a good string of sixth men here,” Rivers said, referring to Jamal Crawford, the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year twice while with the Clippers for five seasons before he was traded last summer. “Lou is just so efficient. He’s just like Jamal in being a professional scorer.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lou Williams stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 175 pounds. He doesn’t look like he spends time in the weight room. He’s not a great leaper. He’s not going to break a defender’s ankles with a tricky crossover dribble. He looks like a guy you could guard at a lunchtime pickup game.Overlook him at your own peril, though.Williams proved that point in no uncertain terms with a go-ahead 3-pointer in the dying seconds of the Clippers’ 113-112 victory over the Washington Wizards on Saturday. He scored 35 points on 11-for-20 shooting in a reserve role, underscoring his value as a super sub for the Clippers.With Blake Griffin sidelined by a sprained knee, Patrick Beverley out after season-ending knee surgery last month, Danilo Gallinari only recently returned from a strained glute and Milos Teodosic about to return to the lineup from a plantar fascia injury, the Clippers needed an offensive threat.
