Dinwiddie defeated Lauri Markkanen in the finals of Saturday's Taco Bell Skills Challenge.
The Nets guard ended the two-year reign of big men in the competition, getting by Buddy Hield and Jamal Murray in come-from-behind fashion in the first two rounds before handily dispatching Markkanen. Dinwiddie headed into the All-Star break averaging career highs in points (13.6), assists (6.7), rebounds (3.3) and three-pointers (1.9) through 58 games, but he'll need to hold off D'Angelo Russell for the starting point guard job to maintain that pace down the stretch.
Dinwiddie scored 24 points (5-22 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 12-12 FT) to go along with 10 assists, four rebounds and three steals across 43 minutes during Saturday's 138-128 loss to the Pelicans.
Dinwiddie struggled from the field and particularly from beyond the arc, but his perfect showing from the foul line allowed him to exceed the 20-point mark in this double overtime affair. He rounded out his night with an excellent showing as a playmaker and on defense, posting his second-straight double-double. Dinwiddie notably achieved all this as DeAngelo Russell made his largest contribution since returning from a knee injury, indicating that both guards are capable of producing simultaneously moving forward.
Dinwiddie scored nine points (3-11 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 10 assists and three steals in 29 minutes during Sunday's 109-94 loss to the Bucks.
Poor shooting cost him his fourth double-double of the season. D'Angelo Russell continues to have his court time restricted with the Nets looking ahead to the lottery and in no rush to work him back into the starting five following his recovery from knee surgery, so at least for now, Dinwiddie's role and minutes figure to remain steady, even if his game-to-game fantasy production is still quite volatile.
Dinwiddie scored 23 points (9-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT) while adding nine assists and seven rebounds in 32 minutes during Friday's 102-99 loss to the Lakers.
His offense remains inconsistent, but Dinwiddie has scored 20 or more points in three of the last seven games, averaging 15.9 points, 6.4 assists, 3.4 boards and 1.7 three-pointers over that stretch. Until D'Angelo Russell demonstrates that he's ready to take on a larger role for the Nets, Dinwiddie's minutes and spot in the starting five should be secure.
Dinwiddie scored 27 points (6-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 13-15 FT)to go along with four assists and two rebounds across 34 minutes during Thursday's 116-108 in over the 76ers.
Dinwiddie had an effective night from the field, but it was his aggressiveness going to the basket that made the different, with the 13 made free throws representing a new career high. He played his most minutes since Jan. 17, due in part to the absences of Caris LaVert and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, as well as the continued limitations of DeAngelo Russell (knee). Dinwiddie has been a productive player this season and should continue to play a large role until his aforementioned teammates are all back up to speed.
