  • Jordan Crawford is averaging 14.3 points per game in 12 games as a starter this season.
  • Key Matchup: John Wall vs Deron Williams - John Wall has one of the quickest first steps in the league and will look to use his speed to exploit Williams off the dribble. Deron Williams has been one of the most consistent point guards in the NBA throughout his career and has been the guy to watch this season for New Jersey. The point guard matchup should be fun to watch and will be a major factor in the outcome of Wednesday's game.
