Deron Williams

  1. Lopez, Williams, Terry, Kirilenko all out again for Nets Friday

    Nov 22, 2013, 1:26 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    There are a lot of things that need to get turned around for 3-8 Brooklyn. On the offensive end of the court they need Deron Williams and Brook Lopez to take charge and make everyone else a role player. On the defensive end they need to be more cohesive, stop fouling and be stronger on…

  2. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  3. Deron Williams tweaks ankle again, leaves game

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:43 PM EST

    Deron Williams

    Wednesday night Deron Williams was back on the court for the Nets, recovered from the ankle injury that had sidelined him… Well, at least he was for two quarters. In the second quarter he tweaked his ankle again when he stepped on Kebma Walker’s foot. Williams shot his two free throws off the foul on…

  4. Deron Williams to play for Nets Wednesday; Lopez, Kirilenko still out

    Nov 20, 2013, 1:37 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Last game without Deron Williams on the court, the Brooklyn Nets offense degenerated in the second half to a series of isolations that Portland could defend and helped fuel the Trail Blazers comeback. Frankly, that has happened in other games with Williams on the court, but at least he’s a guy who can put an…

  5. The Extra Pass: Gay, Wallace and D-Will on notice, plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    It’s early. Early, early, early. I don’t want to condemn anyone based on ten games, but it’s time to wonder what’s going on with Rudy Gay, Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams. Rudy Gay – He’s been chucking, but his chucking has now reached historic levels. Through 11 games, Gay has shot under 40 percent from…

  6. Nets host players only meeting after latest loss in Portland

    Nov 19, 2013, 10:44 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Brooklyn Nets

    We knew it was going to take a little time for Brooklyn’s thrown together $100 million roster of stars — with a first time head coach straight off the court — to come together. But after a disastrous second half in Portland (the Nets scored 40 points in the first quarter, 35 in the second…

    Our grades for what happened around the NBA Sunday, or what you missed while watching Jean-Claude Van Damme do the splits between two moving trucks… Brooklyn Nets first quarter offense. With all that talent on the roster we expected some big nights from Brooklyn and it looked like we would finally get one (even if…

    The Nets got their first road win of the season in spectacular fashion on Friday, getting a game-winner from Joe Johnson at the overtime buzzer to beat the Suns in Phoenix. The victory was a costly one, however, as Brooklyn will be extremely shorthanded when the team faces the Clippers in Los Angeles on Saturday.…

    PHOENIX – Joe Johnson‘s game-winning layup as the overtime buzzer sounded gave the Nets their first road win of the season, a hard-fought 100-98 victory that came without the team’s starting point guard, Deron Williams. Williams was lost early in the first quarter to a sprained left ankle, but the play of Shaun Livingston, along…

    Brooklyn Nets guard Williams reacts after Chicago Bulls were fouled late in fourth quarter of Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    PHOENIX – Deron Williams suffered another ankle injury during the first quarter in Phoenix on Friday, leaving the game with 7:20 to play in the first quarter. Williams will not return to the game, the team announced. In Brooklyn’s loss to Sacramento on Wednesday, Williams tweaked his ankle in the second quarter, but stayed in…

  12. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  13. Jason Terry says Nets need to play “desperate.” That and they need a better offense.

    Brooklyn Nets Deron Williams Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett

    The Brooklyn Nets got manhandled by the Sacramento Kings Wednesday night. The Kings came in with a struggling offense yet put up 107 points on the Nets “defense,” while on the other end of the floor the Nets offense was stagnant and without ball movement, generating 86 points. The Brooklyn Nets are 2-5 and have…

  14. Three things to watch this weekend: Can Pacers stay unbeaten?

    Nov 8, 2013, 4:38 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We here at PBT don’t believe in “days off” or “sleep” or any of the rest of that pansy stuff — we will be here all weekend giving you NBA content. Still, we want to give you some NBA storylines to watch over the weekend as you bounce between your regular Saturday pickup game and getting…

  15. Brooklyn Nets going old school. Like short-shorts old school. (VIDEO)

    Nov 7, 2013, 12:52 PM EST

    Deron Williams

    I love that Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Shaun Livingston and other Nets were down with doing this. They teamed up with FunnyorDie.com for a comedy video where they go old school — old short shorts, afros, Chuck Taylor All Stars. The whole 1950s package (well, maybe not the afros, but aren’t those really timeless?). Classic.…

  16. Victor Oladipo reportedly interested in participating in the dunk contest

    Nov 4, 2013, 7:29 PM EST

    Victor Oladipo

    Victor Oladipo is off to the stellar start to the season that some of us expected, showcasing a nice combination of speed, athleticism and vision on both ends of the floor on the way to averages of 13.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.8 steals in his first four games. He also showed a…

    Victor Oladipo, Kevin Garnett, Alan Anderson

    Jason Kidd made his debut patrolling the sidelines for the Nets, but his presence had no impact on the outcome of the game, at least in terms of where the Nets were concerned. Orlando cruised to a 107-86 victory, and rookie Victor Oladipo not only contributed 19 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals…

  19. Jason Kidd to make Nets coaching debut Sunday against Magic

    Former NBA basketball star Kidd speaks at a news conference to announce him as the new Head Coach of the Brooklyn Nets NBA basketball team in Brooklyn

    The Nets are off to a 1-1 start to the season, after losing in Cleveland on opening night and then taking down the defending champion Heat at home on Friday. Both games were played without Brooklyn head coach Jason Kidd patrolling the sidelines, as he served a league-mandated two-game suspension for a DWI conviction over…

  20. Nets in control from start, hang on at end to finally beat LeBron and gain confidence

    Heat Nets Basketball

    There are no statement games on Día de los Muertos. I’m not sure there are statement games in early April either, but right now it’s far, far too early to talk about them. Teams change and evolve a lot over the course of a season. A lot. Plus regular season series are not reliable predictors…

  21. Deron Williams says Nets believe they are better than Heat

    Nov 1, 2013, 1:17 PM EST

    Deron Williams

    You want your team to believe in itself, believe it can beat anyone — especially if you are the Brooklyn Nets, a team with a one (two tops) year title window with this core. Having them say it publicly, that’s something else entirely. Deron Williams did just that speaking with ESPNNewYork.com in advance of the…

    Our grades from Tuesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while throwing back a few bottles of snake venom with your buddies. Michael Carter Williams, Philadelphia 76ers. His first NBA bucket came on a steal and coast-to-coast drive and slam against the Miami Heat. It doesn’t get much better than that… except it did.…

    The Miami Heat will open the 2013-14 NBA season at home against the Bulls on Tuesday, after receiving their championship rings and raising a banner to the rafters for the second straight season. They’ll also open the year as the favorites to win a third straight title, but history has not been kind to teams…

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    LeBron James

    You’re busy, so I’ll save you some time: a championship.  They’ve won two straight, basically their entire squad is coming back, and their best guy is the most dynamic and exciting player since Michael Jordan.  The Heat have all the tools they need to make a run at a three-peat – but even with them…
