Jazz fall to broken Lakers, therefore everyone should panic, right? -- The Downbeat #1560

Last night's loss wasn't just about free throws; Jazz OFF/DEF splits for FGA location; Craig Sager beats cancer; and Jazz ticket price information! I don't expect the Utah Jazz to lose to the Los Angeles Lakers in Utah, when the Lakers are forced to start Carlos Boozer at small forward . . . but some of us felt like it was a trap game from the get-go. Getting up for the big games, and playing down to their competition is a hallmark of young teams who just aren't "there" yet. In fact, the Deron Williams era had a bunch of losses just like this when they were fielding a starting line up of...

Hollins: Williams to remain in starting lineup

NEW ORLEANS — Jarrett Jack says he’ll return from injury on Wednesday, when the Nets face the Pelicans. But coach Lionel Hollins says Deron Williams will remain in the starting lineup. “We’re going to stay the same way,” Hollins said. …

The Brooklyn Nets need to follow the leader in Deron Williams

Deron Williams looks like a man that's playing on his last chance and the Brooklyn Nets are loving it. The rediscovered urgency seems to have lit a fire under his tail at the right time of the season. He's had back-to-back double doubles since returning from the All-Star break -- or better yet -- the Trade deadline. "I'm going to be aggressive now," Williams said. "Whatever happened in the first half  ... it's a new half, and I'm ready to go." "I think for them a lot of it is relief," Billy King said. "There's no more rumors from you guys about where they're going to go. ... Now they can...

Lakers vs. Nets final score: Nets torch Lakers in 114-105 loss

The Lakers' season picked up right where it left off. The Los Angeles Lakers held it together for a half but fell apart in the third quarter in a 114-105 loss to the Brooklyn Nets. The Lakers gave up 40 points in the third, getting sliced and diced by Deron Williams. The Lakers held a one-point lead at the half, but Joe Johnson drilled the Lakers with four threes in the third quarter to blow the game open. Williams had no problem passing around the Lakers like a warmup drill. He ended the night with 12 points and 15 assists, setting a new career-high in dimes as a Net. Brook Lopez had a...

Williams, Lopez help Nets breeze past Lakers, 114-105

First game from All-Star break, trying to make a push for playoffs without Kevin Garnett and with Thaddeus Young making his Nets debut. The Brooklyn Nets breezed past the Lakers, 114-105, with both Deron Williams and Brook Lopez posting double-doubles. Jarret Jack was OUT with hamstring, D-Will in the starting lineup -- Joe started at the 4. This was the Nets 15th different starting lineup. Williams went for 12 points and 15 assists, the most he's had in a Brooklyn uniform, while Lopez finished with 22 points and 14 rebounds. Bojan Bogdanovic finished with 18 points, one of his best...

Kragthorpe: Jazz keep deferring payoff of D-Will trade

Oklahoma City is widely considered the biggest winner of the NBAs trade-deadline day. That doesnt necessarily mean the Jazz were huge losers Thursday, because Detroit also contributed to the Thunders prize package. The sequence of events does mean that four years after the Jazz traded Deron Williams, that deal remains subject to some degree of evaluation. The judgment will continue through the summer of 2017 and beyond. Derrick Favors is still the biggest component of that trade — and he alo...

Will this be the last game we watch the Brooklyn Nets’ “Big Three” play together?

There's an elephant in the room and it seems to have been spotted: The Nets' "big three" that opened up the first Brooklyn franchise since 1957, composed of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez, may play their last game together Tuesday in Memphis. The three have played in just one postseason together, resulting in a premature first-round exit from the Chicago Bulls. The next season, Brook Lopez broke his foot in December and missed the rest of the way, leaving Williams & Johnson by themselves. Now, two and a half seasons later, the Nets are 21-30 and have nine days off - playing...

What's wrong with Deron Williams? No one seems to know

Deron Williams has now missed 19 straight field goals, after going 0-for-5 with four turnovers in 22 minutes in a losing effort against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night. The former All-Star point guard continues to come off the bench for the Nets, which should, on paper, provide the Nets with a top-tier talent running the second unit. However, Williams is doing absolutely nothing to help the Nets win basketball games right now, and no one seems to know why. As Stefan Bondy writes: "I have no idea (what’s wrong with Williams)," said coach Lionel Hollins. "I feel bad for the kid because...

Deron Williams ... and Riley Williams ... talk about ankles and things.

It's an interesting testimonial. Deron Williams talks about the great care he gets whenever he goes to the Hospital of Special Surgery, which he admits he has visited often since being traded to the Nets. HSS, which is the Nets official hospital --and sponsor of the Nets training facility in Industry City-- posted the video on its website. A lot of what D-will and Dr. Riley Williams III, the Nets medical director, talk about is their personal relationship, which the Nets player praises and notes, "I'm a Williams and he's a Williams." The medical Williams, who we will call R-Will for the...
