After getting pounded by the Celtics Wednesday night in a 105-86 loss, Utah Jazz point guard Deron Williams, who was a game-time decision, was frustrated by his team's play and toughness.

"I mean, it's not just me," Williams said. "It's not time to point fingers. We all played bad today. We all have to play better to win, and we haven't done that on a consistent basis this year. And it's frustrating.

"We're soft. And there's no way around it. We're not playing tough at all. They were quick on loose balls, quick on the floor. They did what you have to do to win."

Williams was questionable because of a sore back and a strained calf. He said his back "felt pretty good" afterward. He didn't play in the fourth quarter.
