VIDEO: Deron Williams hits half-court shot just after the buzzer

Nets guard Deron Williams famously improves as the year goes on in Brooklyn, whether that’s because of platelet-rich plasma therapy, cortisone shots, detoxifying juice cleanses, or just the proverbial “getting his legs under him.” But none of that matters if you release just after the buzzer — which is what Williams did on this half-court shot.

The Nets ended up winning in a semi-blowout, defeating the Minnesota Timberwolves 114-99. But it was a close game in the third quarter as the Timberwolves built a lead as large as six. If only quarters were 12:01 long.
