Hit a couple of three-pointers in garbage time, so, that’s something.
Got minutes in the second quarter and used them effectively to miss free throws. He’s a master of the reverse dunk, though.
Some decent drives to the basket and he at least hit double digits in scoring but was nothing more than a cog in this brutal machine.
Went point-for-point with Kevin Durant for a stretch in the first quarter and played defense on him, which is about as much as you can ask for. But there was no stopping the Durant train once it left the station.
Had two jumpers just barely rim out in the first half and was outplayed by Kendrick Perkins. Bad day at the office capped by an awful missed reverse layup.
Fine, ineffective, quiet, background-y.
Came off the bench again and really struggled to start the game, losing three unforced turnovers in his first stretch off the bench. If you’re looking at this game as a comparison of superstars, Williams didn’t stand a chance against Durant, but he did not help his case at all. Escaped an F because he did at least hit a few jumpers.
The Nets gave Johnson, their lone All-Star, the ball on the first possession of the game. Johnson dribbled in place for a few possessions, then fired a fadeaway 17-footer.
That about sums it up.
Left the game in the second quarter with an undisclosed injury. Returned to the game in the second half clearly hobbled and hit a corner 3-pointer, then sat out the rest of the game with a bruised left hip. I don’t get it either.
Played for the first time since January 11th, heard loud “REG-GIE! REG-GIE!” chants, and promptly bricked two bad shots at the rim. Missed you, Reggie.
Didn’t look as comfortable shooting as he has in recent weeks — was rushing his looks to avoid shotblockers and it didn’t pay off for him.
