Dinwiddie Hits Winning 3 in Overtime Win

The Nets look to get a win against Blake Griffin and the Detroit Pistons;

Both teams were off to a rough start that was filled with missed layups, silly turnovers and weak offense; But Jarrett Allen started the offense with back to back shots followed by Joe Harris knocking down 2 treys, and a beautiful play under the basket by D’Angelo Russell; the Nets were looking tighter on both ends. Caris LeVert was off to a much better start, despite his last 4 point game. He added with 7 points and 2 assists early in the 1st. The Nets continued their cohesion on defense, and offense with great ball movement and timely plays; but the Detroit Pistons would not give up without a fight, after being down 15 the Pistons fought their way back and ended the 1st quarter trailing by 6.

The Nets opened the 2nd quarter with lax defense, as the Pistons were off to an 11-2 run, but with Jared Dudley coming alive in the middle of the 2nd, the Nets regained the lead, up 44-48 with 4 mins left on the clock. The Nets slipped on offense as the Pistons went on a late 2nd quarter run; they finished the 1st half trailing by 6.

With the 2nd half underway the Nets look to gather their composure as they trail by 8 in the middle of the 2nd quarter. As the Pistons’ defense increased, the Nets closed the 3rd quarter down by 6.

Brooklyn made quick improvements to start the 4th as they cut the lead to 2, but as the offense continued to struggle the Pistons continued their lead.

With 4 minutes left in the 4th the Nets look to close the game with a win; Spencer Dinwiddie makes a 3 point play to bring the Nets within 3.

Down 3 (110-107) in the 4th with 22.6 seconds on the clock the Nets look to tie the game, Spencer Dinwiddie drills a clutch trey tying the game 110-110 to go into overtime.

Joe Harris, who finished the night with 23 points, knocked down an opening 3 in OT giving the Nets much needed late game energy, but as Blake Griffin sinks a late OT trey to give the Pistons the lead Spencer Dinwiddie would answer with a game winning trey of his own to close the overtime quarter; as the Nets defeat the Pistons 120-119.

Dinwiddie would finish with 25 points, 4 assists, and 4 boards.
