Deron Williams

  1. The Extra Pass: LeBron and Kobe miss each other once again, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES – The reason behind the NBA scheduling a Christmas Day marquee matchup between the Heat and the Lakers had nothing to do with the current fate of the respective franchises, and everything to do with potentially getting to see two of the game’s biggest stars competing in a rare head-to-head matchup. A Finals…

  2. Christmas night NBA grades: Durant is on the nice list, the Nets get a lump of coal

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:26 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that “Christmas Jammies” song out of your head….  Brooklyn Nets not named Deron Williams. If you want to blame everyone in a Brooklyn uniform (ugly, Christmas Day sleeved uniform) for that disaster of a loss, I can’t blame you. They were…

  3. Jason Kidd, Brooklyn Nets come up empty against Chicago Bulls

    Dec 25, 2013, 3:33 PM EST

    Reggie Evans

    The Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls woke up early, left on their sleeved Christmas pajamas and opened the NBA’s Christmas Day slate. Jason Kidd probably wishes he never got out of bed. A game after blasting his team for “kind of getting comfortable with losing,” Kidd oversaw Brooklyn’s 95-78 loss to Chicago on Wednesday, an…

  4. Chicago Bulls-Brooklyn Nets is NBA’s worst Christmas Day matchup since…

    Dec 25, 2013, 11:30 AM EST

    Derrick Rose

    The NBA has built a Christmas Day empire by featuring the league’s top teams and players on Dec. 25. It’s become an honor to play this day, and those in the league recognize the accomplishment of getting on the schedule. Fans see it too, annually expecting to see the NBA at its regular-season best. That’s…

  5. Jason Kidd says Nets “getting very close to just accepting losing”

    Dec 24, 2013, 11:27 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v. Philadelphia 76ers

    First it was Mike D’Antoni lashing out at Lakers fans, then Sacramento’s Mike Malone smacking his team around, now Jason Kidd doing the same with the Nets. Apparently NBA coaches took the Festivus “Airing of Grievances” part very seriously. Kidd was frustrated after his team played a close first half then just got blown out…

  6. The Extra Pass: The nightmare that is LeBron James; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground? That’s a recurring nightmare for lots of people, but it’s a recurring reality for Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer was on the sidelines with the San…

  7. Report: Nets asked about Jeremy Lin, Omer Asik, but Rockets wanted Deron Williams. Talks died.

    Dec 23, 2013, 1:25 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    In the NBA there are more trades discussed than there are in your fantasy league. Just very few ever get off the ground in any real way. Take for example a conversation between the Brooklyn Nets and Houston Rockets that took place before Brook Lopez went down for the season, according to an ESPNNewYork.com report…

  8. Michael Carter-Williams returns to Sixers lineup Friday against Nets

    Dec 20, 2013, 12:51 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Philadelphia 76ers

    This could be fun: Deron Williams vs. Michael Carter-Williams. Looks like we will get to see it because Michael Carter-Williams is set to return to the Sixers lineup Friday night after missing seven straight games with a knee infection. Officially he is a game time decision — because teams like to keep their options open…

  9. The Extra Pass: The Clippers’ “Rosie” Screen; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Over the next few days in this space, we’ll break down a play that’s largely unique to one team. To kick off this signature series, we’ll start with the Los Angeles Clippers’ “Ring-Around-The-Rosie” screen. Innovation in the NBA is often about adding little wrinkles to something very simple. There are no “Wildcat” offenses that take…

  10. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  11. Chris Paul puts up historic stat line in win over Wizards

    Dec 15, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul was outplayed by Deron Williams in a blowout loss to the Nets on Thursday, and being one of the game’s more fiery competitors, you knew he wasn’t going to let that happen again when facing John Wall and the Wizards in his team’s very next game. The Clippers jumped on the Wizards early,…

  12. Trade rumor update: Nets may be Kyle Lowry frontrunners

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:58 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Charlotte Bobcats

    When last we left off with “Days of our Kyle Lowry,” the Raptors were shopping their favorite point guard around hard and had talked with New York. Then Knicks owner James Dolan pulled the plug on it because… well, he’s James Dolan. Now the Nets may be the frontrunners but the Knicks want back in…

  13. Nets notes: Kidd takes some credit, Lopez downplays injury, and Pierce off the bench

    Dec 13, 2013, 10:12 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    NEW YORK – A few leftover items from Thursday night’s big win for the Nets, the team’s third straight. When Jason Kidd parted ways with assistant coach Lawrence Frank a little more than a week ago, it was viewed in one of two ways. Either it was a desperate attempt to shift the blame for…

  14. The Extra Pass: Deron Williams is the difference for Nets; plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Deron Williams

    By Brett Pollakoff NEW YORK – It was only a week ago that the Nets were a sinking ship on the verge of capsizing completely, following consecutive losses at home where the team didn’t even seem capable of competing much less staying close enough to win for anywhere near the requisite 48 minutes. Jason Kidd may…

  15. Thursday night NBA grades: Any more questions for LaMarcus Aldridge? Didn’t think so.

    Dec 13, 2013, 2:50 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    Our quick look around the association on a busy Thursday night, or what you missed while worrying about what could happen to Santa’s home due to global warming… LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. I’ve been saying he is the best power forward in the game all season (yes, better than Kevin Love) and he showed…

  16. Deron Williams crosses up Chris Paul. Twice. (VIDEO)

    Dec 13, 2013, 12:12 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Brooklyn Nets

    There was a time when “Deron Williams or Chris Paul?” was a legitimate question worth debating. Not for the past few years however — D-Will has hobbled around with injuries while CP3 has assumed the title of best point guard in the game (with reason). But for a night, the debate could be on again.…

  17. Deron Williams with the crossover on Chris Paul to end first half vs. Clippers (VIDEO)

    Dec 12, 2013, 9:41 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    NEW YORK – Deron Williams began the night by falling to the floor after being victimized by a crossover from Chris Paul. The fact that he stepped on the foot of teammate Brook Lopez was what ultimately caused him to crumble, but Paul’s action at least sent Williams sliding in that direction. In the second…

  18. Deserving or not Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade among All-Star starters in early voting returns

    Dec 12, 2013, 1:58 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s your game fans. The NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition filled with the players you vote to see. Whether those players deserve the honor based on their performance the first half of the season or not. Sometimes the most deserving guys don’t make the cut while guys hobbling through the season do. Which brings…

  19. Cheeks says he needs Pistons’ Jennings to step up on defense. Good luck with that.

    Dec 12, 2013, 11:36 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons vs Miami Heat

    It’s not that Brandon Jennings can’t play defense. He can. If you remember Jennings from the first couple seasons he was a solid defender on the perimeter. But that has changed over the years — he doesn’t seem to care about that end of the floor now, save for gambling for steals. He shows flashes,…

  20. Kidd says he is reading Frank’s “reports” as details of Nets coaching mess come public

    Dec 11, 2013, 1:30 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    In case you needed a good laugh today — Jason Kidd says he is reading the “reports” that reassigned assistant coach Lawrence Frank is writing. That’s what he told the New York Post. “I’ve been reading the reports [Frank is filing], and that’s as far as it’s going.” Riiiight. Now, if it the reports read…

  21. The Extra Pass: The league’s leading lineups; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    After watching two of the league’s best starting lineups duke it out in Indiana, let’s check in on the best and worst lineups around the league so far this season. Best Net Efficiency Rating (minimum 150 minutes) Houston: Patrick Beverley-James Harden-Chandler Parsons-Terrence Jones-Dwight Howard Net efficiency is the difference between a team’s offensive rating and…

  22. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At the quarter pole Portland takes the lead

    Dec 9, 2013, 4:53 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The general rule of thumb is 20 games into the season you can start to really trust the stats and the trends — in which case it’s good to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan. They move into the top slot with their recent wins over Indiana and OKC. 1. Trail Blazers (17-4, Last Week…

  23. Paul Pierce practiced Monday, could return vs. Celtics Tuesday

    Dec 9, 2013, 12:55 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Brooklyn Nets

    Tuesday night the Nets could get Paul Pierce and Deron Williams back on the court. Which would be a nice first step toward turning Brooklyn’s tire fire of a season around. Both Pierce and Williams went through practice on Monday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. We knew Williams was close to returning, however Pierce…

  24. Deron Williams ‘on track’ to return for Nets’ next game

    Dec 8, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets have had their season derailed by injuries thus far, and while having a first-year head coach in Jason Kidd probably isn’t helping given the situation, the fact is that without the team’s full complement of players, it’s impossible to know just how much fault can be placed there. But the clock will be…

  25. Report: Jason Kidd safe as Nets coach until team gets healthy

    Dec 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    The Nets are going through an especially rough time right now, and even mentioning as much seems like a gross understatement of the facts. Brooklyn has lost several of its key players due to injury, including Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Andrei Kirilenko, and Jason Terry. Head coach Jason Kidd parted ways with assistant Lawrence Frank…
