The Brooklyn Nets will be well represented All-Star weekend, having players such as Joe Harris and Spencer Dinwiddie compete in competitions.
The 2020 All-Star game is a little more than a week away and a couple of Nets players are gearing up to be featured in some All-Star weekend festivities in Chicago. Lethal sharpshooter Joe Harris(40.5 3FG%) will try to defend his crown in the 3-point contest, while perennial playmaker Spencer Dinwiddie will represent Brooklyn in the Taco Bell skills challenge(6.4 assists).
This break couldn’t have come at a better time. After a very strenuous first half of the season, featuring injuries, inconsistencies, and underachieving, the Nets will get to take a step back, have fun, and recuperate. The Nets have dealt with a multitude of injuries regarding their core players(i.e Kyrie Irving, Caris LeVert). Their underwhelming season has been largely predicated on a culture shift and lack of availability to important players; specifically Kyrie Irving, whose only managed to play 20 games.
As it stands, Brooklyn currently sits at the seven seed with a 22-27 record. This squad deserves quality recovery time. As well as a chance to revive some of the joy that may have been lost within the season. So this break will serve as a positive in multiple ways.
Nonetheless, after failing to make the All-Star game after an incredible run that kept the Nets afloat for a lengthy duration of the season, Spencer Dinwiddie will be placed on the spotlight in Chicago to showcase the world his point guard prowess.
On the other hand, Joe Harris, the leagues best shooter, will compete against other deadly snipers such as Trae Young, Duncan Robinson, Zach LaVine, Davis Bertans, Devonte’ Graham, Damian Lillard, and Buddy Hield.
All eyes will be on Joe Harris and Spencer Dinwiddie, as we’ll root for our beloved Nets to showcase their talents Feb. 16th, in hopes that their victories may bring good spirits back into Brooklyn for the remainder of the 2019-2020 season.
