Joe Harris got off to a fast start Saturday after a tough night in Charlotte, scoring eight points and knocking down two quick 3-pointers in the first quarter.
His night ended early as coach Kenny Atkinson opted to take a long look at rookie Theo Pinson, but Harris was very good while in the game.
The Nets moved the ball better and moved without it more effectively and that opened up Harris for those above-the-break 3-point opportunities off picks.
He ended December shooting 54 percent overall in 13 games and 56.5 percent from 3-point range. That was second-best in the NBA for the month behind Davis Bertans of the San Antonio Spurs (60.8 percent).
Jarrett Allen sat much of the game in favor of reserve Kenneth Faried, but he made some noise while he was on the floor with a massive dunk and a notable block.
If the NBA were Red Dead Redemption 2, Allen would be a long way toward completing the Legendary Animals quests after his block on a dunk attempt by All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo on Saturday.
He adds the Greek Freak to a list that also includes a couple of other All-Star level players in Blake Griffin of the Detroit Pistons and LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers who also had dunk attempts snuffed out by The Fro.
More importantly, Allen played much more under control on offense after playing in a hurry in Charlotte.
