Maybe all that he needed was another NBA player on his team. That's one explanation for Deron Williams' improvement over the last three games. It's when Cavs center Semih Erden started playing serious minutes for Besiktas. D-Will scored 17 pointsTuesday on 6-for-16 shooting (2-for-8 from the arc) and handed out seven assists.
Erden, a Turkish favorite, finished with a double double (13 and 13). Since he's gotten big minutes three games ago, Williams has averaged nearly 19 points a game and better than 5 assists. Besiktas won its second game in the Turkish Champions Cup, 75-73. They play again Tuesday.
