The Brooklyn Nets got 18 points out of Deron Williams, 16 points out of Gerald Wallace and a whole lot of nothing from everyone else in Sunday’s 97-88 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis ripped Brooklyn to shreds scoring 26 points and 24 points, respectively. What made their contributions even more lethal, though, was the fact that they came in a very efficient manner – a combined 50 points on a grand total of 22 shots. Ersan Ilyasova chipped in 10 points off the bench, too.
Meanwhile, as noted, Williams and Wallace led the way for Brooklyn – but that was pretty much it as far as the starters went. Joe Johnson had six points on two-of-eight shooting. As a team, the Nets shot 40 percent; the Bucks shot 47 percent. Along the same lines, the Nets shot 28 percent from behind the arc while the Bucks shot 44 percent.
