G Deron Williams is coming off a 14-point, 12-assist effort vs. New York, his 12th double-double this season.

Numbers: The Nets are 11-2 since Carlesimo took over coaching the team after Avery Johnson was fired. The Wolves have won six of their last seven games with the Nets, including a 107-96 victory in Brooklyn on Nov. 5. In their last eight games, the Wolves are being outscored by an average of 5.1 points in the fourth quarter, and allowing opponents to shoot 54 percent.
