"Talking about Deron, though, from a playing perspective, Deron has played well," Hollins said. "He's gotten us off to great starts with his pace. He's made passes and when you're getting seven, eight assists in a game and eight to 10 rebounds, you're doing a lot of stuff right."
"I'm disappointed in how everybody is coming down on Deron and treating him like he's a pariah. Deron's a good person, he's a good player," Hollins added.

If Williams sees his minutes limited against the Hawks, Jarrett Jack will step in and run the show at point guard.
Williams remained in the game initially after suffering the fall, but after a missed shot and a turnover he went to the bench and didn't see any action for the rest of the game.
"It’s frustrating," Williams said. "It’s frustrating for me to be banged up, but we won tonight. And like I said, that’s the only thing that matters. Brook (Lopez) had a heck of a game tonight, you know, on both ends of the floor, rebounding. He did everything tonight. Joe (Johnson), big plays."
Jack finished with five points, eight assists and five rebounds in 27 minutes of action.
"I just try to be ready when my number is called," Jack said. "We have a hell of a starting point guard in D-Will. Right now, he’s a little bit banged up. So if I have to come in to give him some relief I try to do the best I can. I know he’s took a number of bumps and bruises, he’s got back, tailbone, fingers, knee. But the kid is tough, he’s resilient. He’s battling through it, fighting through it, still giving us a pretty good charge for it. Hats off to him, and I’m sure he’s going to have a great game coming up Monday and, if not, I’m there to help him out, as well."
Lopez added two blocks to his totals. He and the Nets will look to even the series Monday in Brooklyn.
"I tried to go out there and not [make] too many mistakes," Teletovic said. "I guess I made some. I realize that when you come back after three months everything is new to you."
Teletovic was sidelined for three months after being diagnosed with blood clots. Coach Lionel Hollins said he wasn't on the court enough Wednesday to make an impact either way.
"There was nothing to evaluate," Hollins said. "If he’d made two shots, I would say he made two shots that really helped us. But he wasn’t out there long enough to do anything else."
Teletovic averaged 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds during the regular season. He'll likely be in line for limited action in Game 3 against the Hawks Saturday.
