WHEN ASKED to name his favorite point guards of all time, one of the first names that rolls off the tongue of 76ers guard Jrue Holiday is Deron Williams. Williams cemented his legendary status in Holiday's mind last night as he torched the 76ers for 34 points and 11 assists to lead the New Jersey Nets to a 97-90 overtime win, handing the Sixers just their second loss at home in 11 games. Though it took Williams 28 shots to post his point total, it was the clutch timing of his makes that did in the Sixers, who fell to 12-6 overall.

Deron Williams made an NBA-record nine three-pointers in the first half, finished with 11, and scored a season-high 42 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 95-78 victory over the Washington Wizards on Friday night in New York. Williams made his first eight shots behind the arc, became the first player in a decade to match the opposing team's score in the first half, and was one shy of the NBA record of 12 threes as the Nets opened a huge early lead and coasted. He missed with 1 minute, 8 seconds left, leaving him one shy of the record shared by Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall.

Last night wasn't quite what the 76ers had in mind. They were hoping for something they rarely have done this season: play well. The NBA schedule provided a natural break, four days between games, four days to breathe before the start of this trip. In that time, the Sixers were hoping they had crossed a bridge away from the disaster that was the first third of the season and toward something better. It didn't happen last night. Last night, the losing continued. At a sold-out EnergySolutions Arena, the Utah Jazz defeated the Sixers, 97-76.

Deron Williams and Dwight Howard talked about being NBA teammates four years ago during the Olympics. Now Williams knows there's speculation that it could happen soon. He's aware of reports that Orlando and Brooklyn are trying to arrange a trade - possibly involving two other teams - but he's not paying too much attention to that. "There's been a lot of rumors over the last year as far as he's concerned, so early on I concerned myself with it, but lately just let it play out and whatever happens, happens," Williams said Monday at training camp for the latest Olympic team.

Carmelo Anthony scored 23 points, J.R. Smith kept up his surge with 20, and the New York Knicks snapped the San Antonio Spurs' seven-game winning streak with a 100-83 victory Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. Notable: Denver Nuggets guard Andre Miller, a former Sixer, scored the 15,000th point of his NBA career on a mid-range jumper in the first quarter against Minnesota, becoming the eighth player to score that many and dish out at least 7,500 assists. Late Wednesday On Sunday, the Los Angeles Clippers were the hottest team in the NBA, extending to 17 games a winning streak that was the talk of the league.

The next time the 76ers play at the Wachovia Center, their season will be 33 games old. Yesterday, the Sixers flew to Utah. Tonight against the Jazz they will begin a trip that spans four states, covers 10 days, and includes five games. The Sixers are 7-21. The Jazz are 16-13. The Sixers should be rested. They have played only one game - a loss at the Washington Wizards - in the last six days. On Wednesday night, the Jazz lost to the Miami Heat, 80-70. Earlier this season at the Wachovia Center, the Jazz, then without starting point guard Deron Williams, defeated the Sixers, 112-90.

    Nene had 22 points and 10 rebounds in his Washington debut, and the Wizards defeated New Jersey, 108-89, in Newark on Wednesday, in a game marred by ejections of the Nets' all-star point guard Deron Williams and head coach Avery Johnson. Williams and Johnson were tossed by referee Josh Tiven with 5 minutes, 18 seconds left in the third quarter for arguing a non-call on a Williams drive to the basket. Tiven appeared to call all four technical fouls, getting Williams first and then the coach after his best player was ejected.

Utah Jazz rookies Deron Williams and Robert Whaley have been cited for giving false names to police officers investigating a bar brawl in Park City, Utah, for which they otherwise would not have faced any charges. Williams, a starting point guard, and Whaley, a little-used center, were cited with one count each of providing false information, police Lt. Rick Ryan said yesterday. The brawl was started by Denver Nuggets fans who recognized the duo, and involved eight to 10 people.

BROOKLYN - Perhaps there have been better quarters by an individual in the history of the NBA, but you would be hard-pressed to find anyone at the Barclays Center who witnessed anything better than what Joe Johnson did during the third quarter last night. Johnson scored an amazing 29 points in the third and finished with 37 as the Brooklyn Nets drilled the 76ers, 130-94. It was the Sixers' seventh straight loss, 11th straight on the road and 15th in 17 games. They are 7-19; Brooklyn improved to 9-15.

THE PREGAME jog that 76ers coach Brett Brown took at FDR Park was quite refreshing, he said, as he gets acclimated to his new surroundings. Overseeing his squad's 127-97 preseason loss to the undermanned Brooklyn Nets at the Wells Fargo Center last night must have been as grueling as a marathon for Brown. Though playing without a pair of All-Stars - guard Deron Williams (sprained ankle) and forward Paul Pierce (rest) - the remaining Nets still strolled through a men-vs.-boys win, crushing the Sixers on the boards (54-31)

COMFORTABLE AND in control, Deron Williams was more than the Boston Celtics could handle. Williams had 29 points and 12 assists to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 101-93 victory over the Celtics on Wednesday night. "Very comfortable," Williams said when asked how he was feeling on the floor. "I was able to attack the rim a lot and get to the free-throw line 10 times. That helps build confidence, getting to the free-throw line and knocking them down. " Brook Lopez scored 21 points and Joe Johnson added 20 for Brooklyn, which won for the 12th time in 18 games overall and beat the Celtics for the third time in four meetings this season.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - The concern for the 76ers going into Tuesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets at the spanking-new Barclays Center was the Big Three of Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson. While they probably don't come too close to rivaling the Big Three down in South Beach, they do present a legitimate problem to most teams. While definitely on the pregame scouting report, Reggie Evans doesn't often require the preparation the other three do. Wednesday, however, he was the featured attraction for the Nets.

MIKE D'ANTONI circled the court 2 feet at a time, moving smoothly on crutches while his Los Angeles Lakers went through drills orchestrated by his assistant coach and brother, Dan. Although D'Antoni's surgically replaced knee is slowing him down a bit, he couldn't wait any longer to get the Lakers rolling. D'Antoni formally took over the Lakers on Thursday, 4 days after the slow-starting club hired him to replace Mike Brown. The former Knicks and Suns coach is still on crutches and pain medication after surgery earlier this month, but thinks he'll soon be back to normal while he attempts to transform the Lakers into his vision of an up-tempo, high-scoring team.
