The Charlotte Hornets made sure Spencer Dinwiddie didn’t beat them on Friday.
After Dinwiddie put up 37 points and a season-high 11 assists in the Brooklyn Nets’ double-overtime win on Wednesday, Dinwiddie was held to a season-low three points on Friday.
He struggled with the lack of driving lanes and never got to the foul line after averaging 8.3 attempts from the line over his previous 11 games.
Dinwiddie looked frustrated and out of sorts much of the game and for the first time in a very long time was a non-factor.
Ed Davis did some terrific work on the defensive glass and was solid defensively before getting into foul trouble.
But the for the second straight game (maybe he’s just not fond of teal), Davis struggled at times catching and controlling the ball.
Davis isn’t going to be a go-to guy on offense, relying on putbacks and rolls off picks for the bulk of his offense and Charlotte was relatively effective on its defensive board, allowing just nine offensive rebounds.
Davis was part of a group that had Brooklyn’s most success against the Hornets, finishing at plus-11 in a game the Nets lost by 13, so he was effective.
