Deron Williams would rather be in Utah. D-Will is back to his old self, but the Nets lost another key rotation player to injury, small forward Damian James, who broke his foot and is out indefinitely. On the bright side, the Nets have damn near the same record as the Knicks without Brook Lopez and their future rests on using Lopez in a deal to land Dwight Howard. That's their only hope to keep Deron Williams and fill seats when they head to Brooklyn next year. Until then, they'll stink to high heaven. —Angel Diaz
