Deron Williams Scores 57 Points

( 4UMF NEWS ) Deron Williams Scores 57 Points:

Deron Williams scored 57 points Sunday night, and the Nets needed his historic effort against the worst team in the NBA. Williams’ total was a franchise-high, toppling the previous mark of 52 set by Mike Newlin (1979) and Ray Williams (1982).

He carried the Nets without Brook Lopez – who left the game injured in the third quarter, perhaps dealing a blow to New Jersey’s hope of landing Dwight Howard – as the Nets toppled the Bobcats, 104-101.

Williams hit 16 of his 29 shots, scoring 22 in the third quarter and 40 in the second half, as the Nets overcame a 14-point second-quarter deficit. The Bobcats (4-31) are 1-21 since Jan. 14.

Williams converted all 21 of his free throws.

“When you’re hot, you just have to go with it,” Williams said. “Things weren’t going right in the first half and I was able to bring along the offense. When you get hot like that, you have to roll with it.”

On the same day, Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov lost the Russian presidential election, theoretically freeing him up to attend his first game this season. Vladimir Putin declared victory early Sunday, winning by a wide margin, with Prokhorov finishing third behind Communist candidate Gennady Zyuganov.

Putin reportedly received over 60 percent of the votes. Prokhorov was running in single digits.

Williams, meanwhile, hit the half-century mark with 2:59 remaining, demolishing his previous career high of 42.

Lopez limped off the court and into the locker room 9:01 remaining in the third quarter. He is the centerpiece of a proposed trade for Howard. The trade deadline is March 15.

Williams scored 12 consecutive points for the Nets in the third quarter, capped by a four-point play with 2:47 remaining in the third quarter to give New Jersey a 71-66.

He was the only New Jersey player to score more than 11 points, finishing six points short of the Nets’ ABA record set by Dr. J.
