Westbrook’s late bucket tops Nets in tight finish, 109-108

Westbrook’s late bucket tops Nets in tight finish, 109-108

The Nets continue to press the heart rates of fans all around Brooklyn. This time, it ended in heartbreak. Brooklyn and Oklahoma City played a streaky game throughout. The Nets controlled the tempo for most of the game, but OKC owned a one-point lead with less than a minute left. It was Spencer Dinwiddie time. Dinwiddie took the ball hard to the hole and laid it home with his left hand. The Nets led 108-107 with 7.8 seconds left. That’s 7.8 seconds too much for Russell Westbrook, who hit a contested layup of his own on the following drive. Dinwiddie time again. Only, this time it didn’t...

Will the Nets sell high on Joe Harris?

Will the Nets sell high on Joe Harris?

Joe Harris is having a heck of a year for the Nets. Will he be around for the end of it? Brian Lewis examines the possibility and believes the 6’6” shooting guard may just be too good not to trade within the context of the Nets rebuild. Lewis argues that Harris may become too expensive for the Nets in summer when they’re expected to hoard cap space. So the logic is, don’t lose him for nothing; get something now. A fan favorite, Harris has gone from being traded and cut the same day he had season-ending ankle surgery in January 2016 to a solid NBA bench player. Lewis...

Nets try to beat the Thunder again

Nets try to beat the Thunder again

Payback is fun. When the Brooklyn Nets went into Detroit to play the Pistons on Sunday afternoon, they were hoping for two things. One was to come away with a win after suffering a 34-point beatdown at home earlier this month and the other was for Spencer Dinwiddie to make his former team pay for not believing in him. They killed two birds with one stone as Dinwiddie's game winner gave Brooklyn a one point win. Job well done. The opponent this evening will be the Oklahoma City Thunder. After a slow start, the Thunder are looking like the contenders we expected them to be. They've been off...

For Spencer Dinwiddie, the Nets call was a life-saver

For Spencer Dinwiddie, the Nets call was a life-saver

Spencer Dinwiddie remembers his thought process back in December of 2016 when the Nets called to offer him a deal. He was playing for the Windy City Bulls, with few prospects for a return to the NBA, where truth be told he had not done that well. “A lot of people don’t make it out of the D-League,” recollected Dinwiddie. “Or, if I don’t sign it, then what if nobody picks me up? Am I still down there? Am I overseas right now? “It’s very easy to be forgotten about in this league. There’s a lot of good players all over the world that, whatever reason, didn’t hit off right...

The go-to guy: Spencer Dinwiddie’s ‘clutch gene’

The go-to guy: Spencer Dinwiddie’s ‘clutch gene’

Spencer Dinwiddie has developed a clutch gene. It cannot be denied. So after Dinwiddie’s latest heroics, his game-winning bucket to propel his Brooklyn Nets to victory, 101-100, over the Detroit Pistons, the team that drafted him, then unceremoniously traded him, ESPN’s Amin Elhassan asked a very relevant question... Is Spencer Dinwiddie the most clutch basketball player ever, or just the most clutch NBA player ever?— Chillin in my Bacta (@AminESPN) January 21, 2018 The answer? .@SDinwiddie_25 is CLUTCH in January!

SPENCER DINWIDDIE HITS GAME-WINNER TO LIFT NETS PAST DETROIT, 101-100

SPENCER DINWIDDIE HITS GAME-WINNER TO LIFT NETS PAST DETROIT, 101-100

TWO WORDS: SPENCER. DINWIDDIE. After leading all throughout the night, the Brooklyn Nets saw their 15-point deficit disappear with less than two minutes remaining. In the final seconds, Andre Drummond took Caris LeVert to the hole and gave the Pistons a one-point lead with 4.7 seconds left — their first lead since the first quarter. Then, the Nets went to Spencer Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie made his way into the paint with two Pistons to get by. He pump faked, hesitated and adjusted his shot mid-air to get it over Drummond, giving Brooklyn a 101-100 lead with .9 second. The Pistons were out of...

Nets new two-way deals better bets for long-time development

Nets new two-way deals better bets for long-time development

In the past three weeks, the Nets decided to dump the two two-way deals they signed in the summer and replace them with two other players. And there will be no new deals. NBA teams can’t sign any new two-way contracts now that the January 15 deadline for two-way deals has passed. Out are Jacob Wiley, a 6’8” power forward who proved to be a better athlete than basketball player and Yakuba Ouattara, a 6’4” guard who has been incapacitated with a leg injury. Ouattara was re-signed by Long Island after being waived but to a standard G-League deal. No word on Wiley. In are Milton...

Players union chooses Dinwiddie to run New York clinic

Players union chooses Dinwiddie to run New York clinic

When the National Basketball Players Association surveyed the NBA landscape looking for a player to host a Basketball Clinic at its new training facility in Manhattan next Sunday, they decided Spencer Dinwiddie was just the man for the job. “I just know I got a call, they just asked, and I thought it was cool. I was more than honored to be the person that they selected. Now go sign up!” said the Nets guard. So why not, right? The 6’6” University of Colorado alum will host children aged 9-17 from 3-to-5 p.m. next Sunday, the afternoon following a late Nets road game in Minnesota...

Nets two-ways lead Long Island to second straight nail-biter win

Nets two-ways lead Long Island to second straight nail-biter win

Milton Doyle and newly signed James Webb III, Brooklyn’s two-way contracts, scored 43 of Long Island’s 103 points as the Long Island Nets beat the Lakeland Magic by one at Nassau Coliseum. It was the Nets second close win in two nights, having beaten Delaware by two on an Isaiah Whitehead buzzer-beater on Friday. The game was a breakout for Webb, who scored 20 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, hit 5-of-10 from deep and came away with three steals as well. It was his third double-double of the season and his first as a member of the Nets. Webb, listed at 6’9” (he says 6’10”) has...

Nets begin road trip vs Pistons with matinee in Detroit

Nets begin road trip vs Pistons with matinee in Detroit

Attitude adjustment. On Friday night, the Brooklyn Nets found themselves down big against the Miami Heat. It looked as if things were going to end in a familiar fashion (i.e. a loss), however things went differently this time. Brooklyn came back from a 16 point deficit and walked away with a great win in front of the home fans. They'll be on the road for the next week and change. The opponent this afternoon will be the Detroit Pistons. They're in line to make the playoffs, but all is not well in the D. They lost to the Washington Wizards at home on Friday and the game was indicative of...

Any Nets All-Stars? Nope, but Zeller and Okafor got votes

No Nets made the cut for the All-Star starters, but fans did their best in trying to get them to Los Angeles. The Spencer Dinwiddie #NBAVote campaign produced 30,782 votes, second most on the team. D’Angelo Russell got 8,000 more and Jeremy Lin, despite huge Asian fan base, secured 200 fewer than his back-up. Quincy Acy was the only other Net to get more than 10,000 fan votes. He finished with more than 12,000, mystifying some Nets fans!

Whitehead hits game winner in D-League thriller, ending Long Island losing streak

Whitehead hits game winner in D-League thriller, ending Long Island losing streak

The Brooklyn Nets win over the Miami Heat wasn’t the only thriller Friday night in Nets Land. Isaiah Whitehead hit a runner in the lane with 0.3 seconds remaining to give the Long Island Nets a 112-110 win over the Delaware 87ers in Newark, Delaware. The win ended Long Island’s six-game losing streak. Long Island, now 15-13, won because of stellar backcourt play. Whitehead, on assignment from the Nets finished with 21 points on 10-of-18 shooting while Milton Doyle, one of the Nets two two-way contracts, had 26 on 10-of-25 shooting. Doyle also hit four 3-pointers. Akil Mitchell, the...
