Deron Williams' gift to autism families: a night at Barclays

Deron Williams hosted 65 families of children affected by autism in luxury suites Friday, a way to give them a night on town. Williams, whose son is autistic, met with families post-game. Each child and his family was photographed with Williams and his wife Amy and provided a gift.

Autism Speaks lapel pins were worn by both teams’ coaching staff, Autism Speaks was honored on the scoreboard. Williams' Point of Hope is now focused on autism and he's an ambassador for Autism...

Deron Williams still the key to Nets' success

Deron Williams still the key to Nets' success

Stephen A. Smith writes Friday about how well Deron Williams must play for the Nets to go deep in the playoffs. The answer: very well. The Nets aren't going to the NBA Finals unless Williams shows up. They are not going to the Eastern Conference Finals unless Williams shows up. Chances are, they'd be hard pressed to get past the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the playoffs unless Williams shows up. And that essentially means the Nets aren't relevant in the grand scheme of things ... unless Williams shows up. Smith isn't optimistic, pointing to how D-Will has hit another rough...

Marc Gasol, Deron Williams among worst investments in 2013-14 - NBA Fantasy

John Cregan identifies his All-Overpaid team, the players that fantasy owners spent too much upon in auctions and drafted too highly in snake drafts. Marc Gasol and Deron Williams lead the list.

Kidd: D-Will 'maybe underappreciated'

NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd went to bat for Deron Williams again, saying his point guard’s game is “maybe underappreciated.” “I think his game as a whole is maybe underappreciated because he plays both ends. And he’s played hurt. And he hasn’t complained,” Kidd said. “Publicly maybe he’s said maybe too much in the sense that he lost confidence, but you can see that he’s playing at a very high level and he plays both ends of the floor, which as a coach and as a teammate you couldn’t ask for more from your point guard.

Nets shooting 40.8 percent from deep in March

Nets shooting 40.8 percent from deep in March

There are few Nets players who can't hit a three (Shaun Livingston and Mason Plumlee come to mind) but those who can, do.  Mike Mazzeo reports that during March, the Nets are in the top five of deep shooters, both in terms of attempts per game (26.3) and accuracy (40.8 percent). There were seasons in the not too distant past where a 40 percent game was a reason to party. Joe Johnson (45.8 percent), Paul Pierce (44.8), Marcus Thornton (41.2), Deron Williams (41) and Mirza Teletovic (36.2) are all shooting well from behind the arc in March, writes Mazzeo. The big advantage may be the bench...

Update: Deron Williams will play vs. Bobcats; Marcus Thornton remains a game-time decision

The Brooklyn Nets announced that Deron Williams, who missed Wednesday's shootaround because of an "illness," will be in the lineup as they face off against the Charlotte Bobcats. Deron Williams (illness) is playing tonight. Marcus Thornton remains a game-time decision so you're just gonna have to wait. Ok? #nets — Alex Raskin (@alexraskinNYC) March 26, 2014 Marcus Thornton, who hurt his back on Monday night against the Pelicans, is a game-time decision. So, we won't know until closer to the game whether or not he'll play, but it does sound unlikely at this point. We will update as we...

No KG, AK-47 tonight; D-Will out too?

The Brooklyn Nets will be without Kevin Garnett and Andrei Kirilenko when they face the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night, and could also be without Deron Williams and Marcus Thornton. Williams (illness) and Thornton (back) have been listed as game-time decisions by the team. Garnett will miss his 14th straight game due to back spasms, while Kirilenko will miss his second straight game and 33rd overall this season due to a sprained left ankle.

Williams 'took control of game' vs. Bobcats

NEW YORK -- The Brooklyn Nets needed Deron Williams to take over down the stretch. And that’s exactly what their $98 million point guard did. Williams scored 11 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, leading the Nets to a 104-99 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night at Barclays Center. “Deron took control of the game and made plays on both ends,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said. The Nets (35-31), who led by as many as 13, trailed 85-82 with 6:11 left, but Williams scored seven consecutive points, giving them an 89-85 lead.
