Spencer Dinwiddie added some more fuel to his Sixth Man of the Year fire with his 25th consecutive game with at least 10 points while coming off the bench.
Dinwiddie did what he does best, exploiting switches and blowing by the bigs who wind up matched up with him.
There was one fourth-quarter possession where LeBron James got switched onto him and Dinwiddie made a bad decision by pounding the air out of the ball while trying to get James to bite on a move.
But for the most part, his work with the ball was solid. He moved it around, picking up six assists, and hit a terrific step-back 3 in the corner after Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball got crossed up when Dinwiddie hit them with the Nash dribble under the basket.
D’Angelo Russell set the tone early with 11 points and four assists in the first quarter and, even though he cooled off in the second half, it was his 3-pointer with 22.4 seconds that helped ice the game for the Brooklyn Nets.
Russell also carved up his former team, matching his career-high with 13 assists.
He got loose with the ball at times — a sign of trying on a few occasions to do too much — but overall played a very solid game. His opposite number, Lonzo Ball, played well also with 23 points, but had just three assists and three turnovers before fouling out.
But the scoreboard says revenge was served by DLo for the first time in three tries against the Lakers.
