Deron Williams really wanted to make his tee time Monday morning in Miami.
Knowing coach Avery Johnson would be giving his team the day off if they won, Williams took matters into his own hands and scored a franchise-record 57 points to lead the New Jersey Nets to a 104-101 victory Sunday night over the Charlotte Bobcats.
Williams, an avid golfer, says "I had an 11:39 tee time, so I had to make sure I'd make that."
