Deron Williams wasn't messing around tonight. He and Brook Lopez made quick work of the Bulls in the first half, combining for 34 points on their way to a 25-point halftime lead. Deron dropped 22 points during his 35 minutes, dropping seven dimes and a ridiculous reverse dunk. He was the man for BK and made easy work of Chicago. The Bulls better hope it was all the energy surrounding Brooklyn's first ever playoff game, because this series looks like it could be over quickly.
A double-pump reverse jam from Deron Williams. End the game now.

I don't think we have to worry about Deron Williams having any issues dunking anymore.

Deron Williams has been ballin but I had no idea he could throw it down like that. That's how you get a postseason crowd going. #Brooklyn

Okay that's it, Deron Williams is back to being the second best Point guard in the league.

I’ll take five of whatever Deron is injecting into his ankle.

Deron with a two-handed fastbreak reverse. Now, I've really seen it all. #Nets lead 89-62 as we head to the fourth quarter.
