Deron Williams pounds the fans

“Everybody was excited for this game,” said Deron Williams, who finished with 22 points and seven assists while brilliantly orchestrating the Nets’ offense. “I think it’s been a long time coming for this franchise and this organization, with the move and everything.

“We expected to be here. We came out playing like we wanted to be here. … We were locked in tonight. From shootaround we really focused on the plays and getting our schemes right, and it just carried over to tonight.” – nypost

Jay-Z shows the Roc-Nation logo during the game

Jerry Stackhouse, the Nets guard in his 18th season, sang the national anthem [Video], and his delighted teammates mobbed him after the final note. Mikhail Prokhorov, the Nets’ principal owner, then saluted fans over the P.A. system, saying “I heard there was a blackout in Brooklyn so I came to keep the lights on.” Jay-Z, the rapper and minority owner who was so influential in re-branding the Nets as they moved from New Jersey, watched it all courtside, a black Nets cap flipped backwards on his head. – nj
