Record column: Nets win but Deron Williams limped off after struggling again. Can they win without him - or with him? bit.ly/1z8tXCU

Devin Kharpertian

In his past 7 games, Deron Williams has as many turnovers as field goals. Game Grades: thebrooklyngame.com/game-grades/ho…

Anthony Puccio

Deron continued: "Of course I wanna be on the floor, but Jack was playing well and the guys did a good job of closing it out."

Anthony Puccio

Deron Williams on getting in the 4th quarter: "I was pretty sore, so I don't know how effective I would've been."

Rod Boone

Deron on getting hurt today: "It's frustrating for me to be banged up, but we won tonight and that's the only thing that matters."

Devin Kharpertian

Lionel Hollins had no update on Deron. Williams's health. Hadn't spoken with trainer Tim Walsh yet.

Andrew Keh

Lionel Hollins on sitting Deron Williams the final 16 minutes: "It's just basketball. I made more than that one sub."

Frank Isola

Deron Williams now has 9 playoff wins with the Nets. Carmelo has 7 with the Knicks.

Rod Boone

#Nets will have closed out #Hawks with Deron on bench for final 16 minutes.

Stefan Bondy

Question becomes more valid after this game: Does Lionel Hollins start Jarrett Jack over Deron Williams?

Rod Boone

Going on almost about 10 full minutes since Deron has seen the court. Wonder if he even comes back in with #Nets playing so well without him

Anthony Puccio

12-4 #Nets advantage since Jarrett Jack checked in for Deron Williams.

Tim Bontemps

Nets lead 67-62 after three. The big question: with Deron Williams limping and ineffective, have to wonder if we see him again tonight.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets up 67-62 after three quarters. Wonder if we’ll see Deron again. Jack has only taken two shots, has a 5:0 assist-turnover ratio.

Josh Newman

Thad Young is balling, while Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez are a combined 7-for-30 shooting. Makes sense

Rod Boone

Combined shooting for Deron, Joe and Brook: 7-for-28. That's 25 percent if elementary school math is correct.

Brian Mahoney

Joe Johnson and Deron Williams are a combined 4 for 20.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams has shot 17-73 (23.3%) over his last seven games.

Stefan Bondy

Lionel Hollins subbed out Deron Williams, who is 1-for-8. Nets are blowing this one.

Rod Boone

Jarrett Jack has come in for an ineffective/hobbling Deron.

Rod Boone

Deron is 1 for 8 and 1 for 4 from three-point range. #Nets good start is done. #Hawks have taken a 60-58 lead.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams is limping every time he’s not handling the ball.

Stefan Bondy

This could be the game Deron Williams gets his first triple double. ...if he could only get 10 points.

Andrew Keh

Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez and Deron Williams chilling at a combined 5 for 24 from the field.

Stefan Bondy

Deron Williams and Joe Johnson have combined for nine points on 3-of-16 shooting.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams has gotten past Teague with some success a few times, but has gone nowhere once he’s there.

Devin Kharpertian

& Nets are winning RT @Mike Mazzeo: Joe, Brook and Deron are a combined 5-for-22 from the field. #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Joe, Brook and Deron are a combined 5-for-22 from the field. #Nets

Brian Mahoney

Teague already way too fast for Deron, who's been limping since 2nd qrtr. Hawks' 1st hoop of 3rd came after he left Deron behind on screen.

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams limping heavily as he walks off. Appears to have done something to his right knee/quad.

Rod Boone

Deron has to come out. Looks like he banged his thigh.

Lenn Robbins

Got to hand it to @BrooklynBridge_ Picking up @Deron Williams D-Will didn't shoot well but unlike @Rajon Rondo , we doesn't quit on his #Nets

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams landed square on his tailbone. Slow to get up, walking gingerly. Still in the game.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams gets up a little gingerly. Trying to shake it off. #Nets

Mike Prada

Why did Hollins take out Bogdanovic to play the Jack/Deron backcourt?

Lenn Robbins

A @Deron Williams trademark. So often he rebounds from a bad call or bad outing with a vengeance. #Nets up 14-3. D-Will 3 pts, 3 rbd 3 asts

Stefan Bondy

Good two-man stuff from Deron Williams and Brook Lopez. 14-3 Nets.

Stefan Bondy

Shorter beard Deron WIlliams buries his first 3-point attempt. Already has two boards and two assists.

Rod Boone

Deron just hit a three and #Nets lead 10-2. #Hawks call a timeout.

Stefan Bondy

Nets drew up first play of the game for Deron Williams and he missed a reverse lay-up, fell to the ground.

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams makes a nice move on opening possession, gets to the rim and slips and falls while missing an open layup.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams got a few boos during the starting lineup.

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams introduced to a mixture of cheers and boos. More cheers than boos.

Nets sticking with starting five from Game 2. @WeMustBeNets argued for Jarrett Jack over Deron Williams: bkga.me/1ECMCZV

Anthony Puccio

Deron out here early, yes, sinking most of his shots. http://t.co/U41maYaXo2

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams practices his baseline jumper http://t.co/0JYnMSRRNJ

Devin Kharpertian

Through Games 1 & 2, Jarrett Jack is +11; Deron Williams -18. @WeMustBeNets: thebrooklyngame.com/nets-start-jar…

Lenn Robbins

#Nets Hollins blasts @Reggie Miller who criticized @Deron Williams All they are are talking heads. They’re not basketball players anymore.
