Brooklyn (8-14) ran its winning streak to a season-high three games.
"It's great and the most important thing is that we have to keep streaking," Nets center Brook Lopez said. "Our guys are playing great together and we're playing with a lot of confidence."
Williams scored 15 points and added five rebounds and four assists in his second game back since an ankle injury sidelined him for three weeks. He was one of five Nets to score in double figures. Guard Joe Johnson and reserve center Andray Blatche tied for the team lead with 21 points, while Lopez added 16.
"You can see the energy and the pace has picked up," Williams said. "I have a little bit to do with that, but I can't take all the credit. We're playing really good as a team right now."
"I just twisted it a little, sprained it a little," Lopez said. "I think I got hit by someone, I don't really know what happened in the heat of the moment but it'll be all right."
"I think he was just aggressive," Kidd said of Blatche. "He is someone we count on to put the ball in the basket from the inside as well as the outside and he got it going and we played through him."
Brooklyn's defense proved hazardous for the Clippers, who shot just 37.1 percent from the field. Point guard Chris Paul led Los Angeles with 20 points but only had two assists, far off his league-leading 11.9 mark.
Brooklyn trailed by as many as 12 points in the first quarter before Blatche helped the Nets grab their first lead of the night. He scored 10 points in the second quarter while Paul and Griffin sat. Williams scored 12 points in the final five minutes of the half, putting the Nets up 12 at the break after they outscored the Clippers 36-19 in the second quarter.
