Joe Harris continued to shoot the ball well as he has shaken off the mini-slump he was in a couple of weeks back.
Harris is shooting 50 percent overall and a sizzling 51.9 percent from 3-point range in the six games since he returned from a hip injury that sidelined him for three contests in late November and early December.
He’s averaging 14.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 30.4 minutes per game over that span and has been much more active off the dribble and penetrating since returning.
His six free throw attempts Sunday were a season-high, while he matched his season-high with six assists — hitting that total in each of his last two games.
Jared Dudley had his best game as a member of the Brooklyn Nets Sunday. It’s never a surprise when someone off the Nets’ bench hits double-figures in scoring, but it was a stunner that it was Dudley, who dropped a season-high 16, his most in more than a season.
Dudley also picked off three steals, reading the passing intentions of Atlanta’s young ball-handlers, and was active on both ends.
He appears to be much more comfortable in this reserve role than he was in his 20 games as a starter and the Nets already strong bench gets a bit better as a result.
