We get it. Theo Pinson was seeing his first game action for the parent Brooklyn Nets playing four minutes against the Washington Wizards on Dec. 1 and was in just his fourth NBA game overall.
Pinson, on a two-way contract with the Nets, had played in every game for the Long Island Nets in the NBA G League prior to being brought back to Brooklyn while the Long Island club participated in the G League’s Winter Showcase in Las Vegas last week.
But coming into the game and almost immediately firing up a 30-footer? Not the best of looks.
- Allen Crabbe (sore right knee)
- Caris LeVert (subtalar dislocation, right foot)
- Dzanan Musa (left shoulder subluxation)
- Alan Williams (Long Island Nets, two-way)
Did not dress
- Treveon Graham (left hamstring strain)
Did not play-coach’s decision
- Kenneth Faried (25th DNP-CD in 34 games dressed)
