Kyle Korver is 4-for-18 from 3-point range in his past two games #Nets doing an excellent job shadowing him/switching/contesting.

#Blazers win means #Nets v. #Hawks tips off at 7 p.m. Wednesday in The A.

Lenn Robbins

“It’s definitely gratifying to have a game like this at this moment in time,’’ @Deron Williams after his 35-point game led #Nets to win

Tim Bontemps

So much for the Nets being a walkover. Thanks to a vintage Deron Williams showing, Nets-Hawks is suddenly a series: nyp.st/1HR9e9J

Tim Bontemps

If Portland wins, 7 p.m. If Memphis wins, 8 p.m. twitter.com/jwohl15/status…

Rod Boone

Considering the stakes, other than last year's Game 7 vs. Raptors in T-Dot, this was the most exciting #Nets game I've covered in my 3 years

In the last week, Deron Williams has emerged as an unlikely unifying force for the Nets: bkga.me/1P0Fztq

Tom Lorenzo

I watched a grown man eat a mailbox key because Deron Williams scored 30+ points tonight. And because of @KennyDucey. #sports

Tim Bontemps

And it's what has made the past three years all the more confusing to watch unfold this way.

Tim Bontemps

Obviously the Nets building around him hasn't worked out. But games like this were why everyone thought he was a top 10 player at one time.

Tim Bontemps

This game was also the latest example of how absolutely baffling this Nets team has been all season long. Never know what you'll get.

Tim Bontemps

There aren't many players who could play the way Deron Williams did tonight. Games like this show you why the Nets built around him.

Tim Bontemps

As someone who has watched the vast majority of his games up close the past four years, this is the kind of performance he's capable of.

Tim Bontemps

Tonight's performance from Deron Williams is why the ups-and-downs of the past three years have been so unbelievably confounding to watch.

Anthony Puccio

And finally, from Coach Budenholzer after Game 3: "It's going to be a series." Now it IS a series and the Nets have shocked the NBA.

Anthony Puccio

Mike Budenholzer:"We go into the game w/ a lot of respect for D.Williams," he continued."A lot of respect for Deron & what he's capable of."

Devin Kharpertian

Some of you said the Nets championship parade should go down 4th avenue. Interesting idea, but I’d be worried about a 2-lane road

Devin Kharpertian

35 points for Deron Williams is the most he’s scored in a game since March 8, 2013.

Anthony Puccio

Boj.Bogdanovic: "I want to thank the fans that stayed behind us, supporting us, and I hope that next game they're going to be the same way."

Anthony Puccio

Hollins on DW: "The kid has overcome a lot of adversity. He had a lot of adversity with the injuries & w/ the negativity around his name."

Anthony Puccio

Kyle Korver on DWill: "He played great. I played with Deron in Utah for a few years and that's the Deron I remember."

The locker room is in a good place right now - @Deron Williams who got great support from his coach and teammates this week #Nets

Deron: "It's definitely gratifying to have a game like this at this moment in time."

Rod Boone

Deron said his teammates having his back "definitely fueled me tonight."

Lenn Robbins

"Definitely one of my better games this year for sure and probably as a Net - @Deron Williams #Nets

Rod Boone

Deron said it means a lot to him that Lionel Hollins came out and staunchly defended him yesterday. Said he thanked Hollins today.

Rod Boone

Lionel Hollins starts Bojan Bogdanovic and it pays off nwsdy.li/1dmPiPd #Nets

Lenn Robbins

Brooklyn’s done a good job. They’ve kept fighting. The playoffs is a new season. Everybody gets a fresh start.’ #Hawks @Al Horford on #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Had to catch myself and put things into proper perspective but thought of D-Will vs. Pierce would be highly intriguing #Nets

Lenn Robbins

"A lot of respect for @Deron Williams for who he is and what he’s capable of." - #Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer #nets

Andrew Keh

Hollins smiled and said he learned that line from Cotton Fitzsimmons.

Andrew Keh

"It's the only way to respond," Hollins said of Williams. "You guys buy your ink by the barrel so it doesn't do any good to respond to you."

Mike Mazzeo

Lionel on Deron's prayer three: "Thank God -- because we needed it." #Nets

Lenn Robbins

"It's the only way to respond." Lionel Hollins when asked if @Deron Williams play was the best way to respond to the criticism. #Nets

Lenn Robbins

"I'm excited by the way the team rallied around @Deron Williams as well..This was a huge step in unity,''#Nets Hollins on what this win means

Rod Boone

Lionel Hollins said he's proud of the way #Nets rallied around Deron tonight.

Lenn Robbins

"What can I say about D-Will and his game?" Lionel Hollins on @Deron Williams performance..#Nets

Tim Bontemps

Lionel Hollins: "To me, this is what playing is all about."

Anthony Puccio

If there's a D-Will, there's a way: Nets knot up series, 120-115 sbnation.com/e/8269492?utm_… http://t.co/5VDv7hVyWJ

Game Grades updated with stats okay guys please attend my funeral why did I ever agree to at the buzzer reactions bkga.me/1P0e9nm

Anthony Puccio

Tonight proved it perfect: This Nets team goes wherever Deron Williams takes them. Like it or not...

Brett Yormack

Best win since we have been in Brooklyn . Playoffs only in Brooklyn.

Anthony Puccio

Hey Chris Webber... Are the Nets still a "bad" team?

Tim Bontemps

LeSean McCoy to a friend of his, as he walks by press row: "Yo, that was crazy, dog!" Hard to argue with that, Shady.

Devin Kharpertian

HEY CHECK OUT THESE GAME GRADES OKAY I’M DEAD NOW bkga.me/1P0e9nm

Welp, the Nets win. Series tied 2-2. Game 5 is Wednesday and Game 6 is back in Brooklyn on Friday.

Tim Bontemps

Nets win, 120-115. Deron Williams has 35 points, and we have ourselves a series.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams has tied his playoff career-high with 35 points. 16 in the fourth. Two huge FTs in OT. #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Korver just had 3 shots at it and missed them all. D-Will to the line with a chance to seal it...

Devin Kharpertian

Of course, Deron Williams with the biggest rebound of the game.

Tim Bontemps

Nets again fail to get an offensive rebound – twice. Hawks ball down three with 25.1 seconds left.

Mike Mazzeo

Korver fails to hit form Bushwick. But offensive rebounds. Offensive rebounds. Offensive rebounds.

Devin Kharpertian

I’m never drinking basketball again

Lenn Robbins

Meanwhile. Next year's new tenant @barclayscenter @NYIslanders just tied Game 7 1-1...

Tom Lorenzo

Nets crowd gets burned a lot, but they've been fantastic tonight. Shout out to them.

Rod Boone

Thad Young bucket gives #Nets a 116-113 lead with 53.6 seconds left. Take a deep breath.

Tim Bontemps

Joe Johnson with a spectacular pass to Thaddeus Young, who hits the shot and is fouled. Chance to make it a four-point game, but he misses.

Mike Mazzeo

Bojan with no fear on that 3. And Thad with an And-1. #Nets close to evening this series. Crowd erupts.

Devin Kharpertian

Adsalkjsdfglksdfglks RT @chrishooker9: Really excited for the game grades @Devin Kharpertian, expecting them the second the buzzer sounds.

Devin Kharpertian

Brook Lopez with a perfect assist. What a read.

Mike Mazzeo

#Hawks, meanwhile, playing offense to perfection.

Devin Kharpertian

Millsap hits a 3, Lopez hits an and-one layup off a broken play. 111-111.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets offense at its finest. Bojan loses the ball right to Brook for an And-1.

Lenn Robbins

Tough call..that's 5 fouls on Brook and @Deron Williams #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams and Brook Lopez now both have five fouls.

Devin Kharpertian

Five fouls now on Brook Lopez and Deron Williams.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams now 3-for-20 in the final five minutes of playoff games #Nets ahead or behind by five points or fewer (1-for-3 tonight).

Lenn Robbins

#Nets shut the door. Going to OT 104-104 #Hawks must be wondering..'Who are these guys?' Butch Cassidy & Sundance Kid reference intended

Tim Bontemps

The Hawks decided they could run an even worse play than the Nets. What the hell was that.

Mike Mazzeo

To overtime we go...

Mike Mazzeo

Yeah, that was odd to take it so early.

Rod Boone

Deron missed an 8-footer with 6.5 left on the clock, leaving way too much time for #Hawks.

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams has been incredible, but that wasn't good at all. You cannot give the Hawks the final shot in that situation.

Devin Kharpertian

Hawks get rebound after Williams misses with 6.5 seconds left. Didn’t need to rush.

Mike Mazzeo

Iso D-Will. Had a decent look at a turnaround and missed. 104-all with 6.5 seconds left. #Nets

Rod Boone

Bojan let Paul Millsap get to basket uncontested and game is tied at 104-104 with 16.4 seconds left.

Anthony Puccio

Give the man a chance to redeem himself. He deserves it after tonight. #Nets
