Deron Williams

  1. Deron Williams returns, chooses to come off the bench in Nets’ blowout win over Knicks

    Jan 20, 2014, 6:58 PM EDT

    deron williams knicks

    NEW YORK – The last time the Nets faced the Knicks, they were without Deron Williams and Paul Pierce due to injury, and a fully healthy New York squad thumped Brooklyn back on Dec. 5 at Barclays by a 30-point margin. A little more than a month later, things have completely changed for both sides. The…

  2. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

  3. Lance Stephenson’s alter ego “Sir Lancelot” wants you to vote for his man for All-Star Game (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

    Lance Stephenson

    Sir Lancelot is emphatic. If nothing else. A lot of players have gone to the Web with attempts at viral videos to get you to vote for them for the All-Star Game (Ty Lawson in Denver was the latest) but most are about as funny as Carrot Top. Lance Stephenson hit it out of the…

  4. Deron Williams won’t travel to London for Nets vs. Hawks

    Jan 12, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    It’s a light schedule for the Nets this week, with just one game on the calendar against the Atlanta Hawks. But it’s being played in London at The O2, and it doesn’t make sense for their injured star point guard to make the flight lasting almost seven hours just to sit and watch. Deron Williams…

  5. Reports: Rockets, Nets discussed Deron Williams trade recently. But no more.

    Jan 10, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Remember a couple years ago how desperately the Nets were trying to pair Dwight Howard with Deron Williams? Howard wanted it to happen but Orlando wasn’t going to give him exactly what he wanted, so they sent him to Los Angeles (in a deal that worked very well for their rebuilding plans). That ended up…

  6. Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday out indefinitely with stress fracture in leg

    Jan 10, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Sacramento Kings

    Ugh. The list of quality point guards currently out injured in the NBA includes Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, Eric Bledsoe (even if he played some two guard)… And now Jrue Holiday. Pelicans starting point guard Holiday has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right tibia and will be out…

  7. Report: Some league executives think Kevin Love will bolt Timberwolves for Lakers in 2015

    Jan 10, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    Kevin Love is frustrated — and he should be. The Minnesota Timberwolves have the point differential of a team that should be 23-12 (according to Basketball-Reference.com), yet they are 17-18. Minnesota is 0-10 in games that ended within five points, which is a combination of some bad luck and some poor execution at the end…

  8. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  9. Deron Williams to remain out for Nets games this weekend

    Jan 9, 2014, 1:56 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    Officially he has is a sprained left ankle. But when you consider Deron Williams’ ankle was treated with a cortisone shot plus platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections — plus he got a PRP injection and a cortisone shot in his right ankle joint to “relieve inflammation” — you had to know he would be out…

  10. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

  11. Nets snap Warriors’ 10-game winning streak (VIDEO)

    Jan 8, 2014, 10:48 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Brooklyn Nets

    The Warriors had a chance to do something no team in NBA history had on Wednesday, and that was end a seven-game road trip with an undefeated record. But the Nets have a little something going these days, and even without Deron Williams were able to get a hard-fought 102-98 victory that brought Golden State’s…

  12. Warriors get 10th straight victory by blowing out the Bucks

    Jan 7, 2014, 10:48 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors won their 10th in a row on Tuesday, besting a Bucks team that has won just seven times all season and is at the bottom of the league-wide standings. The games still need to be played, however, and Golden State allowed Milwaukee to hang around for a half or so before blowing them…

  13. Deron Williams out Wednesday vs. Warriors, maybe longer with sprained ankle

    Jan 7, 2014, 2:42 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Brooklyn has won three in a row and picked up a nice win over Atlanta Monday night in a battle of “which team sucks less with its best player out?” However now it looks like the Nets are going to have to get by without Deron Williams at the point a little longer — and…

  14. The Extra Pass: Winners, losers from Bynum/Deng trade (plus Monday’s recaps)

    Jan 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Chicago Bulls

    Winner: Luol Deng Deng is going to a team that desperately needs him. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ small forwards have a PER of 9.2 and yield a PER of 15.5 to opposing small forwards, according to 82Games.  That’s a horrific net PER of –6.3. Of the 150 positions in the NBA (five per team), only three have have…

  15. Monday night NBA grades: Good night for the Minnesota starting five

    Jan 7, 2014, 3:07 AM EDT

    Kevin Love Ricky Rubio

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching one heck of a freshman quarterback… Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin, Corey Brewer, Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic (Minnesota’s starters). The Timberwolves blew out the Sixers and the starters were a key reason — in 21 minutes the starting five put up 65 points and…

  16. Deron Williams out for Nets Monday night with more ankle issues

    Jan 6, 2014, 6:17 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Nets point guard Deron Williams — who has already missed 11 games this season due to ankle injuries — is out again Monday night as the Nets host the Atlanta Hawks. Stephan Bondy of the New York Daily News tweets some of the details. Deron Williams is out tonight with an ankle sprain. There was…

  17. Deron Williams gets the and-1 to go after crossing up Cavs’ Dellavedova (VIDEO)

    Jan 4, 2014, 11:00 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Simply put, a healthy Deron Williams is a game-changer for the Brooklyn Nets. Plays like this one, where Williams expertly uses his handles to cross up his defender before getting a shot to go as he’s fouled, are a prime example. [via The Brooklyn Game]

  18. The Extra Pass: Seven young players to watch in 2014

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One of the best parts of the NBA is watching the young talent emerge, some guys you expected to be good but others that came out of left field. Along those lines, here are seven players to watch as they start to break out and find their way in their first couple NBA seasons. Anthony…

  19. Thursday night NBA grades: Golden State get a couple “A” grades

    Jan 3, 2014, 3:22 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while worrying about what was really in your donkey meat… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. When he is going like he was in this game — especially in the third quarter when he had 14 of his 36 — there is nothing you can do.…

  20. Joe Johnson hits the game-winner to give Nets huge win over Thunder (VIDEO)

    Jan 2, 2014, 11:11 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Johnson smiles on the bench after leaving their NBA basketball game against Oklahoma City Thunder, in Oklahoma City

    Joe Johnson was just 4-of-11 from the field for nine points on Thursday, but he hit three of his four shots in the final 12 minutes, including the game-winner that helped the Nets escape Oklahoma City with a huge 95-93 victory. Brooklyn trailed by as many as 16 points in this one, and by 10…

  21. Sneak Peek at nickname jerseys for Heat/Nets game

    Jan 2, 2014, 4:59 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Allen celebrates a three point shot against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    Back in the 1970s the NBA used to allow nicknames on jerseys, and they have decided to again for one game — Jan. 10 between the Heat and Nets. SLAM got an advanced peak at the jerseys. To be clear, that is Ray Allen (34, from his character in the movie “He Got Game”), LeBron…

  22. Kevin Garnett admits his rhythm off in Nets system

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Brooklyn Nets

    Putting players in a position to do what they do well and succeed is one of the biggest jobs as a coach. Look at the best — Gregg Popovich, Phil Jackson — and you find systems designed to get guys to do what they do well and not play to their weaknesses. Conversely, there is…

  23. NBA says there’s been no increase in rate of ‘significant’ injuries this season

    Dec 30, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Unless you’re a hardcore fan of one of a small group of five NBA teams, the injuries sustained this season to many of the league’s star players have made this a dismal campaign thus far. The Thunder are one of the five, but we’ve seen them have to deal with missed time from Russell Westbrook,…

  24. Arron Afflalo says he’d appreciate All-Star consideration from Eastern Conference coaches

    Dec 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Arron Afflalo

    The Magic are in a rebuilding mode, and as their 9-20 record will tell you, that means that wins have been hard to come by this season. But a bright spot has been the play of Arron Afflalo, who has been consistently putting up big numbers — he’s posted his career high of 43 points…

  25. Report: If Nets don’t turn around, Kidd likely gone by All-Star Game

    Dec 27, 2013, 7:48 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets first mistake was hiring a coach with no experience — a guy who was going to need a learning curve — and putting him in charge of a veteran team with a one-year (two at best) title window. There was no margin for error. Yet everything has gone wrong. It started with injuries…
