Deron Williams and his Besiktas teammates flew to the Netherlands this week to show their recent success is real, then proved it with their 10th straight win Wednesday, as the Turkish League leader beat ZZ Leiden, by 28 in the EuroChallenge. Williams had 20 points (all in second half), 7 assists and 4 rebounds. He shot 4-for-6 from downtown.
It's the fifth straight game D-Will has scored 20 or more points. Over that stretch, he's averaged 20.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 7.2 assists. Williams, who didn't start, tweeted after the game, "Another good win for us tonight by 30! I came off the bench had 20 in the first half trying to get that 6th man of the year award!"
