Nets lose heartbreaker in Williams’ home debut

Deron Williams played his first game in New Jersey as a member of the Nets, and was fantastic, totaling 18 assists.

The Nets lived up to their name Monday, scoring 103 points, but it ultimately was not enough, losing to Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns 104-103 in overtime. Channing Frye knocked down a 3-pointer with just under 7 seconds left to win the game for the second time in two games. Frye also won the game for Phoenix Sunday, and survived a shaky night to help the Suns get their 31st win. Steve Nash scored 10 points, grabbed 5 rebounds, and dished out 15 assists, but the night belonged to new Net Deron Williams. Williams was traded a week ago to New Jersey from the Utah Jazz and played his first home game in New Jersey, scoring 13 points, pulled down 5 rebounds, and handed out 18 assists, a season high. Center Brook Lopez was the better Lopez on the night, bettering his brother Robin, scoring 28 points to Robin’s 14. Though, Brook missed an important free throw that gave the Suns the smallest of a cushion. Kris Humphries’ tip-in at the end of regulation was called off because he shot it after the buzzer.
