Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams crossed up Boston Celtic forward Brandon Bass not once, not twice, but THREE times on the same play in Monday night’s game.
With the shot clock winding down late in the third quarter, Williams crossed Bass up and then blew past him to hit a floater in the lane. Did Williams travel on his way to making the shot? Hey, this is the NBA. Traveling isn’t a thing any more.
Bass, who is much taller than Williams, looked just plain goofy on the play — his lanky body lunging after Williams’ every move.
Pretty nice ankle-breaker from Williams, who has a history of ankle injuries himself.
The Celtics defeated the Nets 110-91. Brooklyn now trails Boston by a game and a half for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
