Brooklyn received a tough blow on Thursday as it fell 118-105 to San Antonio. One thing holding the Nets back was the play of Nets guard Garrett Temple. He finished with 10 points on 2-for-12 shooting in his 34 minutes on the court. Spencer Dinwiddie has been carrying the scoring load with Kevin Durant out for the year with a torn Achilles, Kyrie Irving out with a shoulder injury and Caris LeVert rehabbing from thumb surgery. Dinwiddie is averaging 22.1 points and 6.2 assists per game and he'll need to put in a big scoring night on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Atlanta was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Thursday as it fell 111-106 to Utah. Atlanta's defeat shouldn't obscure the performances of Hawks forward Jabari Parker, who had 23 points and five assists in addition to nine rebounds, and guard Trae Young, who had 30 points and eight assists along with five rebounds. Young has been fantastic all season (28.4 ppg and 8.5 apg) and done so without John Collins in the lineup as he serves the final game of his 25-game suspension on Saturday.
