A night after being pounded by the Orlando Magic, the Nets welcomed back star guard Deron Williams and have a 51-47 haltime lead over the visiting New Orleans Hornets.
Williams hasn't yet found his shooting touch, missing seven of his 10 attempts, but he's still managed eight points and six assists thus far in 15 minutes. Gerald Green - who has been a revelation for the Nets - already has 12 points off of the bench.
The Hornets have been led by guard Marco Bellinelli's ten points, and forwards Trevor Ariza and Gustavo Ayon have each added eight points and five rebounds.
Both teams have been hot from deep, each hitting on 50 percent of their three point tries.
