About time we play an opponent with the injury bug (even if we could have beaten them anyway).
“When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”

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.
