About time we play an opponent with the injury bug (even if we could have beaten them anyway).

Honestly they're probably a tougher team to beat with him on the bench right now. He's getting his numbers but uses a high number of possessions to get them and doesn't do much else for his team.

Still doesn't impact the game in a positive way for his team.

Meh, they're better with him off the court on both ends and he has a 100 offensive rating for the season.

Volume scorers like that definitely win you games when their shot is falling, but they lose you them taking the same ****ty shots too.

true

I was reading about this dinwiddie guy. Apparently the nets picked him up from the d league. He recently got hot

On October 25, 2017, Dinwiddie scored a career-high 22 points and hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 43 seconds left to lift the Nets to a 112–107 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.[27] Four days later, he tied his career high with 22 points in a 124–111 loss to the Denver Nuggets.[28]

In theory I’d agree with you, but they’re running low on ball handlers.  Lin is out, Dinwiddie is likely out, Whitehead isn’t much of a shot-creator, Levert has been really struggling — they’re kind of low on guys who can make plays on offense.  Against this Celtics defense, it could get really ugly, really quickly.

Dinwiddie is out too? Yeah then that'd be a big loss for them. I didn't know he was hurt, the team runs better offense when he's at the PG in the games I've watched them.

Pulled a hamstring Friday, missed yesterday.  Technically day-to-day, but most hamstring injuries require more than 3 days, so I don’t expect him to play.
