Brooklyn's hero of the night might just be whoever posted that "Missing" poster for Deron Williams outside of Barclays Center, because he came through on cue.
After unimpressive performances these past two games, Williams led Brooklyn with 23 points to help push the Nets to a 97-83 Game 6 victory over Toronto. He was efficient enough by shooting 8-for-16 from the field (4-for-10 from beyond the arc). Williams also showcased what aided Brooklyn to get to the playoffs in the first place: Resiliency. He tweaked his ankle in the second half, but stayed in the game and still managed to be a factor despite initially limping.
So either attendee Jay Z found Williams or Williams found himself. Regardless, he'll need to show up again to beat the Raptors in Toronto with Drake lowkey trolling the Nets from the sidelines. The Raptors have home advantage, but if you're a Brooklyn optimist, you can sleep on the fact that the team does have more Game 7 experience. The Nets battled Chicago until Game 7 last year, where they lost.
