In crunch time, the Nets normally go to Joe Johnson or Paul Pierce, leaving some creative duties for Deron Williams to drive and dish or space. But Williams took — and drilled — a big shot in his hometown Dallas in overtime, burying this three-pointer to put the Nets up 103-95. It was his first three-point make in 5 attempts.
The game was far from over, as Monta Ellis later hit two three-pointers as he led the Mavericks on a furious late run. But they fell up short by 3, losing 107-104. Williams finished with 15 points.
