Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie says Nets are smiling a lot after Sunday’s win over the Hornets
NEW YORK — Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie usually has a lot to say whether his team wins or loses. Being one of the more thoughtful players in the NBA, Dinwiddie has no issue with giving detailed answers about what he sees on the floor or what his team has to work on.
“I think the vibes are good, I think everybody is kind of starting to settle in, you’re seeing a lot of smiles out there, which is good,” Dinwiddie said after scoring 24 points in Sunday’s 102-86 win over the Charlotte Hornets. Dinwiddie, who also had eight rebounds and eight assists, was very complimentary of his teammates despite the second half being a bit of a let down. “We’re kind of knowing Hey, okay, you know, calcium score, spin is gonna get in the lane. And then plan advantage basketball, right?”
Sunday’s game against the Hornets was one of the easiest games that this Nets group has had given how much Charlotte struggles on the defensive end. Even though Brooklyn scored just 102 points, they still held the Hornets to 86 points on 37.5% shooting from the field. It’s clear that Brooklyn is starting to settle into what works for them and the players are starting to understand and embrace their roles.
