"We know they're going to come out and play hard. They fought until the end last night," Nets guard Deron Williams said. "We're up 15 with five minutes left and we've got to do a better job of closing out games. But we know they're going to come back and be ready to play and it's kind of a must-win for them."
"This is where we should be at our best, those late-game situations," Williams said. "We've been there before. They're a younger team that doesn't have as much proper experience, but they ain't playing like it."
