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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Some really great ball movement from the Nets tonight. Bud opened up every damn page of that crunch-time playbook. D-Will -- WOW. Monster.
Jeff Teague gives credit to Nets fans, says "the home crowd did a great job tonight."
Chatted w/ DeMarre Carroll postgame. Said bench needs to be better, too many sloppy turnovers & limit Nets' pace. Nets playing faster, key.
Combined score of the Nets-Hawks series: Nets 394, Hawks 393
Might have been the most memorable game in Brooklyn. Nets pull it out 120-115 in OT behind 35 from Williams, tie series at 2-2.
Tonight proved it perfect: This Nets team goes wherever Deron Williams takes them. Like it or not...
Hey Chris Webber... Are the Nets still a "bad" team?
Raise your hand if you thought the Nets would tie the series at 2-2. (Put 'em down, fibbers...)
As much as Deron Williams gets killed, he has now won 10 playoff games with the Nets. Carmelo has won 7 with the Knicks.
Nets beat Hawks in OT 120-115, send series back to Atlanta tied 2-2. A big basket by Thad Young down the stretch
Nets win, 120-115. Deron Williams has 35 points, and we have ourselves a series.
Welp, the Nets win. Series tied 2-2. Game 5 is Wednesday and Game 6 is back in Brooklyn on Friday.
