Nets give Spencer Dinwiddie a home — and $1 million

Friday was one of the high points of Spencer Dinwiddie’s NBA career — but Saturday was even better. With starter Jeremy Lin sidelined and following season-long point guard problems, the Nets inked Dinwiddie last month and handed him just his second NBA start Friday against the Cavaliers. He finished with seven points and a tied...

Cavs 116, Nets 108; Jason Lloyd's 16 thoughts on Kyrie Irving's return and Kyle Korver's sweet spot

NEW YORK: Sixteen thoughts for 16 shots by Kevin Love in Friday’s 116-108 win over the Brooklyn Nets… 1.     The heckler was seated in the first row near the Cavs’ basket, a good 25 feet from the playing court. After Kyrie Irving blew about his fourth layup in the first half, the man started barking at Irving about all the missed shots. 2.     “Relax man, relax!” Irving told him, pumping his arms for effect. “It’s a long game. You came for a show. Enjoy the show.” 3.     By the fourth quarter, Irving was the star of the show. He missed three games with a sore...

Nets more competitive, but it’s not enough to beat LeBron

The Nets, with the NBA’s worst record, still are searching and shuffling, trying to find lineups and combinations that work. They tried yet another Friday night. Though they were far more competitive than during last month’s meeting with (and beating by) the Cavaliers, the end result was the same — a 116-108 loss to LeBron...

Final Score: Cavaliers hold on in Brooklyn for 116-108 victory

The Cavaliers secured a workmanlike victory against the Nets on Friday night. The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Brooklyn Nets 116-108 Friday night in the Big Apple. The game saw the return of both Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving for the Cavs and both stars were needed to secure the victory. Bolstered by the return of two of the Big Three, fans probably thought this game would be an easy win for the Wine and Gold but Brooklyn was competitive throughout the game. The game started off rather sloppily for the Cavs as both Kyrie and Love struggled to find their legs in their return to game...
