Deron Williams misses open game-tying jumper late in Nets’ loss (video)

Maybe Paul Pierce was right.

Deron Williams had a chance to hit the game-tying shot in the final seconds of tonight’s Hawks-Nets Game 2, but he missed the open jumper, and Atlanta escaped with a 96-91 victory.

I don’t want overreact to just one shot, but Williams looked like a shell of himself throughout the game while scoring just two points on 1-for-7 shooting. (To be fair, he also had 10 rebounds and eight assists. He also helped get himself open with a pump fake, but Joe Johnson’s pass did the heavy lifting on the play.)
