It had been a while since the Nets had this Deron Williams. He returned with a bang. After missing nine games with an ankle sprain, the franchise point guard came through with a throwback performance, scoring a season-high 25 points with seven assists in a season-high 38 minutes during the Nets' 104-96 win over the Celtics. He was spry and aggressive, providing the Nets with a change of pace to complement another dominating performance from Brook Lopez inside.
