Jarrett Allen did what he could Monday night for the Brooklyn Nets, but a lot of his lack of numbers was beyond his control.
Allen was kept hopping … but a lot of it was because passes just weren’t getting to the right spots. He made a terrific play to catch an off-target delivery from D’Angelo Russell and turn it into an assist on a Rodions Kurucs 3-pointer early in the game.
But it was tough sledding for Allen because the guards were just having a hard time getting him the ball where he needed it.
He had a good night on the glass, but with one blocked shot saw his streak of five straight games with at least two swats ended.
It was apparent the Night King laid his icy hand on Spencer Dinwiddie‘s shooting touch — along with that of several other Nets — Monday night, as Dinwiddie hit just 1-of-6 from deep.
But the fifth-year guard did some nice things off dribble penetration, finishing at the rim or getting to the line frequently.
Dinwiddie had just one assist, in part because ball movement and player movement weren’t consistent with so many unusual player combinations on the floor.
Still, Dinwiddie was on the floor for most of the good things Brooklyn did, as evidenced by his team-best minus-3 rating.
