Alex Raskin

Deron Williams is the union rep for the #Nets, so we actually need him now after Silver's comments. Whoops!

Alex Raskin

#Nets beat writers are NOT requesting Deron Williams today because he has been so good about talking to the media. Thanks, Deron!

Mike Mazzeo

Only two five-man lineups in the #NBA (min. 10 games/100 minutes) have been worse than Deron-Bojan-Joe-KG-Brook (minus-5.7 net rating)

Rod Boone

Deron: “This is a team you envy because they’ve had a system, they’ve had a coach, had pretty much the same group of guys for a long time.”

Alex Raskin

When #nets players skip out on the media, it leaves Deron Williams as the guy who has to answer for these losses. And he is not the problem.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron to reporters in San Antonio on Spurs: "It's a team you envy ... because they've had the same group of guys (+coach) for a long time."

Devin Kharpertian

Deron + Mirza: 18-35, 46 points. Rest of Nets: 16-56, 41 points.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets center Brook Lopez (4) was out-rebounded by Nets point guards Deron Williams (5) and Jarrett Jack (6).

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams is good at basketball.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets other than Deron Williams and Mirza Teletovic are shooting 10-for-40 (25 percent) from the floor tonight.

Rod Boone

Deron about to check in.

Rod Boone

#Nets trainer Tim Walsh gives Lionel Hollins the green light to re-insert Deron, tells him, "He's ready." #Nets trail 54-46.

Tim Bontemps

Deron is talking to trainer Tim Walsh and walking back and forth along the bench. Now takes a seat at the end of it, talks to Walsh again.

Rod Boone

Deron is up trying to walk it off.

Tim Bontemps

Tony Parker and Deron Williams banged knees, both wound up on the floor. Parker stays in to shoot free throws, while Williams goes to bench.

Rod Boone

Deron comes up gimpy after banging his right knee, has to check out with 10:25 left in 3rd Q.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams just went down and grabbed his knee. Got up and is limping. Looks like knee-to-knee contact.

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams has 12 points, three assists, & has easily been Brooklyn's best player. He, Teletovic, Lopez & Jack have 32 of Brooklyn's 36.

Rod Boone

Deron, Mirza and Jarrett have combined for all but 6 of #Nets 32 points. They trail by 13 with 2:45 remaining in the half.

Mike Mazzeo

A #Nets field goal in the second quarter! By Deron, no surprise.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets getting killed on the boards (15-8) and shooting 34.8 percent. Down 25-18. Feels worse. Deron at least playing both ends of the floor.

Dan McCarney

Deron Williams beard game is strong.

Rod Boone

Looking forward to seeing a healthy Deron vs. Tony Parker.

Devin Kharpertian

Players averaging 18 points & 6 assists/game with at least .580 true shooting%: Chris Paul, Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard, Deron Williams.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams crosses up Jeremy Lamb bad: bkga.me/1tnKwkA

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams looked gassed for most of the first three quarters, but he's turning it on when it counts. Huge fourth quarter so far.

Rod Boone

Deron is baking out there. Just put Sebastian Telfair in the blender. His bucket puts #Nets ahead 90-83 with 5:37 remaining.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets up 90-83. Deron is carrying them against the Durant/Westbrook-less Thunder. They might just win this one.

Devin Kharpertian

Okay, now Deron Williams is loudly having a good fourth quarter.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams quietly having a solid all-around game.

Rod Boone

Deron just left a little lingerie on the floor as he broke Jeremy Lamb's ankles and goes to the basket easily to hand #Nets an 86-83 lead.

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams just broke Jeremy Lamb's ankles, gets to the rim for a layup and the Nets lead 86-83 with 6:40 left.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets have to get better shots than a contested midrange Deron Williams jumper with 13 on the shot clock.

Mike Mazzeo

7-0 run by OKC means a BK timeout. Deron, Joe and Bojan are a combined 0-for-6. All played massive minutes Wednesday night. #Nets

Tim Bontemps

For those asking, Deron Williams has a bit of a black eye after getting poked in the eye late in Wednesday's loss.

Devin Kharpertian

Stop saying Deron Williams passed up an open layup in crunch time. He didn’t, and made the right play: bkga.me/1AnVoaI

Devin Kharpertian

Should Deron Williams have taken the last shot vs. the Bucks? bkga.me/1AnVoaI

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams made the right play by not taking the last shot, but he didn’t play it perfectly: bkga.me/1AnVoaI

Devin Kharpertian

More than anything else, it shows how dangerous & long Giannis is. Could’ve easily blocked Deron’s shot and still contested Joe’s.

Tim Bontemps

Deron said Giannis helping led to the pass to Joe. Hard to blame him since Giannis has 10-foot long arms.

Rod Boone

Starter's minutes tonight for #Nets: Deron (52), Bojan (47), Joe (52), KG (32) and Brook (43).

Ohm Youngmisuk

Deron might have saw Giannis and that condor wingspan and thought better play was to pass to Joe.

Frank Madden

Giannis' presence in lane convinced Deron to dish to JJ in corner, who got closed out on by...yep, Giannis.

Ohm Youngmisuk

Deron drove, looked like he could have taken it to basket and maybe draw a foul but he passes to Joe, who missed baseline shot.

Rob Peterson

Yes, yes he did. RT @Mike Mazzeo: Deron just passed up what seemed like an open shot in the lane for a Joe off-balance corner shot ...

Tom Lorenzo

I mean, you don't pass there, Deron. I'm just sayin'.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron just passed up what seemed like an open shot in the lane for a Joe off-balance corner shot ...

Rob Peterson

Who's going to draw the foul to get to the line for two? Deron? ... Yeah, I'll pick Deron...

Ohm Youngmisuk

Deron with a big three. Nets down 120-118...
