Nets coach Lionel Hollins steadfastly defends PG Deron Williams
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Nets coach Lionel Hollins steadfastly defended Deron Williams to the media on Sunday, saying his point guard has played well and has not warranted the negative criticism he's been receiving, according the the New York Daily News.

"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.

Nets' Joe Johnson: Deron Williams also dealing with tendinitis
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Nets guard Deron Williams is hoping to play against the Hawks in Game 4 on Monday despite having an injured tailbone. However, there's another injury he's apparently dealing with too.

According to the New York Daily News, teammate Joe Johnson said Williams is enduring a severe case of tendinitis as well. Williams has been banged up for a while so news that he's playing through this injury as well isn't too surprising. 

If Williams sees his minutes limited against the Hawks, Jarrett Jack will step in and run the show at point guard.

Nets' Deron Williams (tailbone) hopeful to play in Game 4 Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nets point guard Deron Williams suffered a bruised tailbone after a hard fall midway through the third quarter of Saturday's game and did not return, The Record reports. He said he'd hopefully be healthy and ready for Game 4 Monday in Brooklyn.

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. Jarrett Jack came in to orchestrate an 18-0 run that helped lead the Nets to their first win of the series.

"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."

Nets' Mirza Teletovic admits game felt 'new' after lengthy absence
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Nets forward Mirza Teletovic made his return to the court in Game 2, playing four minutes while grabbing two rebounds and failing to score a point. He said after the game that trying to catch up to the speed and intensity of a playoff game was difficult after his lengthy absence, the New York Post reports.

"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.
