Embarrassing. Celtics 93, Nets 76


Deron Williams POINT GUARD

Deron Williams is a maximum contract point guard and has shot over 50% twice this season through 27 games. He’s shooting under 40% on the season and since joining Brooklyn. He’s blamed the system and his body. At what point do we re-evaluate what type of player he is, and hope he adjusts to whatever he’s become since the trade?


Was a culprit for a few bad possessions in the second quarter that stagnated offensively, allowing the Celtics to take a double-digit lead. And the third quarter. And the fourth quarter…

Gerald Wallace SMALL FORWARD

Scuffle on Christmas! Got into a tiff with Kevin Garnett after grabbing his shorts, presumably to stay standing, then got hit by a flagrant from Jared Sullinger on a fast break. Probably the most interesting part of this dull game. A quiet first half for Wallace due to foul trouble turned into a loud second, as Wallace attacked the basket with reckless abandon as perhaps the only player with fight.

Brook Lopez CENTER

Did some offensive heavy-lifting in the first quarter and fell apart shortly after. Caught a lot of flack from fans and writers aline for some particularly boneheaded, sad-looking plays, but didn’t look worse than any other member of this decrepit Brooklyn squad.

Andray Blatche POWER FORWARD

Kind of unfortunate that Blatche, who’s been somewhat of a revenatlion this year, one of his worst game of the season on national television, reaffirming what his detractors already believe. Did enjoy brief moments of clarity defensively, followed by terrible stretches. No different from the rest of this roster.


Seven boards in 14 minutes seems a lot less nice accompanied with a -11 and poor defense.

Jerry Stackhouse SHOOTING GUARD

I want to drink out of whatever fountain Jerry Stackhouse uses.
