Found March 11, 2013 on Atlantic Twine:
PLAYERS: Deron Williams
TEAMS: Brooklyn Nets
Coming into the game winners of their last 3 games, the Brooklyn Nets will look to extend that winning streak to 4 games against the lowly Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia. A win would mark the first time the Nets have been 12 games above .500 since 4/19/06, almost 7 years. The last time the Nets were at the Barclay’s, on Friday night, Deron Williams broke the NBA record for three-pointers in a half with 9, and tied the NBA mark for a game with 11. He followed up that 42 point performance on Saturday in Atlanta against the Hawks with 17 points and 6 assists, and has been on quite a roll of late. It will be very important to pick up some victories within the next few games for the Nets, as a week from today they will begin an 8-game, 17-day road trip. After the Sixers tonight, the Nets play the Hornets and Hawks at home before hitting the road.

a good week for the Brooklyn Nets

Not only have the Nets won three in a row (pretty convincingly, I might add; average margin of 17 points) and D-Will had a historic game, but the Pacer, Bulls and Celtics lost Sunday, Hawks have lost two in a row, and the Knicks are hurting (lost Amar’e for the remainder of the regular season while Melo is also dealing with an injury). The defense...

Nets-76ers Preview

Game 63 Recap: Nets 93, Hawks 80. The One Where The Hawks Were Bad, and the Nets Were Just Good ...

Look at that determination! And forehead!   If I told you that the Nets only scored 93 points last night and gave up 10 to Johan "Beaker" Petro alone, you might think that they lost last night's contest with the Atlanta Hawks.
