Nets offense goes from fluid to ‘selfish’

Just a few days ago — after the Nets beat the Wizards by 37 points — Deron Williams credited the Nets’ team play for their remarkable turnaround. “We’re playing like a team right now,” Williams said on Friday. “We’re not …

For Deron Williams, April is about winning ... and autism awareness

Deron Williams' night at Barclays Center didn't end after the Nets beat the Wizards by 37.  Out of the spotlight, D-Will met with dozens of families of autistic children who had watched the game --and their hero. The families got their picture taken with Deron and his wife, Amy, as well as autographs and a gift. D-WIll, who wore blue sneakers during the game in honor of autism awareness, arranged for all the families to sit in donated suites. That way, their children weren't subjected to the loud noises and general ruckus in the stands. It's the second straight year he's done this in...

Knife to Brooklyn's heart: Nets late comeback falls short; lose to Hawks, 114-111

BROOKLYN -- Mikhail Prokhorov may have been in the building for just his second appearance of the season, but by no means did it guarantee a Brooklyn victory, despite the disparity of their playoff hopes. It came down to the very last second with the Nets fighting as hard as they possibly could against the number one seeded Hawks. They trailed by 12 heading into the fourth quarter, but worked a 16-3 run to find their first lead of the night at 109-108 with three minutes remaining. Moments later, they went back down one, but Deron Williams answered with a tough floater on the right block...

Deron Williams shows leadership in Autism awareness

For the sixth year, New York's most iconic landmark, the Empire State Building, is participating in Autism Speaks' Light It Up Blue campaign. And this year, it was Deron and Amy Williams, assisted by their adopted, Brooklyn-born son, D.J..  who pulled the lever that turned the tower blue. D-WIll works as a Autism Speaks ambassador working with the group's founders, Bob and Suzanne Wright.  His foundation, Point of Hope, has fundraising events throughout the year to benefit autism, including his annual Dodgeball tournament. Williams says, "As athletes, we have the ability to affect ...

D-Will to Mazzeo: "I motivate myself"

It was a moment ... and a moment of truth. Mike Mazzeo caught up with Deron Williams post-game Friday following his best two game stretch in, like, forever. In wins over the Knicks and Raptors, Williams averaged 28.5 pts and 9 dimes, shot 56.4 percent overall, 64.3 from deep. More importantly, his team had won six straight. He knew the context, what people were thinking. After a season where he was denigrated as the 20th best (10th worst) starting point guard in the league, his numbers way down. Now it looked like he was back.  He knew where he stood. "I’ve been through a lot since...

Lopez, Williams key surging Nets up the standings

Center Brook Lopez posted 30 points and 17 rebounds, point guard Deron Williams added a season-high 31 points and had 11 assists, and the host Nets surged into seventh place in the Eastern Conference with their sixth straight win, 114-109 over the Raptors on Friday night. Lopez, who had a follow shot to beat the Knicks on Wednesday night, notched his fifth 30-point game in the last nine. The Nets eliminated the Raptors in seven games in the first round of last year’s playoffs, and the teams played their fifth straight regular-season decided by five points or fewer. Jeff Green scored 22...

Lionel Hollins credits Thaddeus Young trade with helping ... Deron Williams

There's been a lot of talk about how the Kevin Garnett-for-Thaddeus Young trade helped open things up for Brook Lopez and led to the Nets recent success.  But Lionel Hollins says the deal has also helped Deron Williams, too.  Hollins told Joe and Evan Thursday that adding Young --and inserting Markel Brown in the starting lineup-- made the Nets more athletic ... and a better fit for Williams' style. Saying D-Will has played "extremely well since the All-Star Break," Hollins attributed the change to the physical and mental rest he was able to get and the change in the Nets' makeup with the...

Nets 100, Knicks 98: "Meh that was cool"

"Just when I thought I was out...they pull me back in." If you entered a coma in 2011 and woke today, and after visiting hours were finally over - after the adrenaline from the flood of stimuli, doctors and family sublimated to exhaustion - you were laying in your hospital bed, flipping through the TV, and you came across an NBA game whose leading scorers were Deron Williams and Andrea Bargnani, you'd likely breathe a bit easier, grateful at the least for this one spacetime harmony. The Knicks, as was the case in their last home game against Boston, played hard, and for long stretches...

Popper: Why not Calipari?

Lionel Hollins has three guaranteed years as Nets coach, at $4 million or better. The Nets want to build around the veteran coach who had great success in Memphis ... but little so far in Brooklyn.  There's no indication he's in trouble. Moreover, it could disastrous for the Nets to dump him and hire their fifth coach in five years. Neither NBA coaches nor free agents are going to be attracted to a franchise that fickle. As Deron Williams has said, the constant change in coaches and staffs is a big factor in the Nets long- running problems. But let's say ownership wanted to make (another)...
