Joe Harris struggled Friday night, having trouble finding screens to curl around and not finding many opportunities to drive and kick, either.
Harris took just one 3-point attempt, snapping his string of consecutive games with at least three made 3s at seven, while scoring a season-low four points after dropping a season-high 27 in the previous meeting with the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday.
If there is a player who will be most negatively affected when the Brooklyn Nets fail to move the ball and create off-ball movement with weak-side screening, it’s Harris and he bore the brunt of the Nets’ sluggishness at the offensive end on Friday.
Jared Dudley did some good things for the Nets defensively and on the glass Friday night, but he couldn’t hit anything from deep (part of a very large group for Brooklyn, to be fair), missing all four of his attempts.
Dudley’s provided the Nets with heady play off the bench in the last few weeks and did a solid job Friday of being in the right place to make plays, he just had trouble completing them.
Charlotte did do a good job of both running shooters off the 3-point line and using its bigs to close off driving angles, but Brooklyn facilitated that with its poor movement off the ball. As a guy who is primarily a spot-up shooter at this point in his career, Dudley suffered as a result.
