D-Will Upbeat After Pistons' Win; Talks About Team's Success

On his official website, Deron Williams talks mostly about the Nets win vs. the Pistons Wednesday and how rewarding it was considering that the team had only eight players in uniform, one of whom joined the team only hours before.. But he also spoke about where things stand with him and the team as they climb up from a bad start.

"We're just trying to get as many wins as possible," Williams wrote. "Early on in the season, I was letting it effect me too much, getting too down [after losses]. I'm just trying to be positive. It's a tough situation we're in with all these guys going down, being hurt. I have to take it upon myself as the leader of this team to step up and make plays on both ends of the court.

"We're just playing a lot better together," he added. "Early on there was no continuity, no consistency from anywhere. We weren't playing good basketball. Now we're starting to get comfortable with each other and making basketball plays. Things are coming a lot easier."
