LeVert is expected to receive a higher workload for Saturday's Game 4, Greg Logan of Newsday reports. With the Nets down a game heading into Game 4, coach Kenny Atkinson stated that he wanted LeVert to see more playing time. The third-year guard's been outstanding through the first three games, averaging 20.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1..7 assists in just 23.7 minutes per contest.
