Jazz Crush Nets As Deron Williams Struggles In Return

Deron Williams' return to Utah was not pretty. Amid a mix of cheers and boos, the Nets' point guard shot 3-for-15 and had as many turnovers (five) as assists on Saturday night, as the Nets lost an ugly one to the Jazz, 107-94.

The Nets left their offense in Phoenix, shooting 43 percent from the field and 9-for-27 from 3-point range. Their defense wasn't any better, allowing Utah to shoot 52 percent and grab 14 offensive rebounds. The Nets were within four early in the second quarter, but went without a field goal over the next 5:19 and never threatened after that.

Kris Humphries led the Nets with 18 points and 10 rebounds. MarShon Brooks, Anthony Morrow, Jordan Farmar and Sundiata Gaines also scored in double-figures.
