J-Will Sits in the Fourth Quarter? That Sounds Familiar.

The Palm Beach Post's analysis of the Detroit/Miami NBA semifinals touches on a familiar story: Former Griz bad boy Jason Williams is sitting out the fourth quarter in favor of his backup.

"In Monday's Game 4, Williams did not score in 27 minutes, missing each of his four field-goal attempts. That followed seven-point outings in Games 2 and 3.

"Overall, Williams is shooting 11-of-23 against Detroit and has made only 2-of-12 three pointers. The ex-Florida Gator has been nearly invisible in the fourth quarter in the series. He's played nine minutes in the final period, including only one minute the past two games, sitting in favor of back-up Gary Payton.

"Still, coach Pat Riley said he's not unhappy with Williams."

Isn't that what Hubie Brown and Mike Fratello used to say?
