Dinwiddie totaled 18 points (6-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five assists, three rebounds and a steal in 29 minutes Wednesday against the Heat. Dinwiddie outplayed starter De'Angelo Russell by six minutes but had roughly the same statistical output albeit more efficiently. The veteran guard has had a nice season leading the Nets' second unit, contributing 13.9 points, 4.1 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 2.0 threes per game on 47.3 percent from the field, 81.8 percent from the line and 39.4 recent from three on the year. Dinwiddie is scoring at a career-best clip, and although he's passing out 2.0 fewer assists per game this year, he may still be worth a look in standard leagues due to his ability to generate modest scoring and distributional numbers on excellent efficiency.
Dinwiddie totaled 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, and one steal in 28 minutes during Monday's 120-113 loss to the Timberwolves. Dinwiddie once again provided solid production off the bench Monday, delivering 14 points in 28 minutes. The stat line is far from spectacular but with Caris LeVert (leg) set to miss some time, Dinwiddie could find a way to additional playing time moving forward. No one player is going to pick up all the slack left by LeVert's injury, however, Dinwiddie could be one of a committee of players to benefit.
Dinwiddie accrued 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 30 minutes Tuesday in the Nets' 104-82 win over the Suns. Dinwiddie emerged as a reliable scoring option for the Nets in 2017-18 and has only improved in that regard through the early stages of this season. He's reached double digits in the scoring column in 10 of the Nets' 11 games -- including each of the last seven -- and is shooting 48.3 percent from the field, an increase of nearly 10 percentage points from the previous season. A downturn in efficiency is almost certainly coming for Dinwiddie to some extent, but a significant year-over-year improvement in shooting percentage wouldn't be unprecedented for a 25-year-old who had limited opportunities in his first two professional seasons.
Dinwiddie scored 25 points (8-15 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding four rebounds and four assists in 32 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 120-119 overtime win over the Pistons. He led the Nets in scoring, but his final bucket was the biggest, as he drained the game-winning three-pointer over Blake Griffin with seven seconds left in overtime. Dinwiddie continues to out-produce D'Angelo Russell, but as yet there's been no indication that Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson is thinking about making a change at point guard.
Dinwiddie scored a team-high 17 points (6-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding three assists, two blocks and a rebound in 25 minutes off the bench during Monday's 115-96 loss to the Knicks. Brooklyn's starting five only managed 35 points in total on the night, forcing Dinwiddie and the second unit to carry the load on offense. The 25-year-old guard has been a consistent scorer for the Nets in the early part of the season, hitting for double-digit points in six of seven games while draining multiple three-pointers in six straight.
