Deron Williams puts Jose Calderon on skates with series of crossovers

DWill Cross

Deron Williams didn’t take long to make his impact felt in the first quarter, crossing Jose Calderon back and forth with a series of crossovers and a spin, before ducking around Brook Lopez burying a 17-foot jumper from the top of the key.

It’s this type of movement that leaves open that sliver of hope that Williams can be a dominant point guard force in spurts for the Nets: there are some point guards that just cannot stay in front of him. That said, it did come against Jose Calderon, who has all the defensive acumen of a ham hock.
