In honor of Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie taking to Twitter to inform the masses that he’s rewatching his highlights on YouTube, let’s take a look at his three best performances of the season.
Everyone is dealing with this NBA hiatus in their own unique ways. Some might finally dust off that old novel they’ve been meaning to get around to for who knows how long, others might plug in their console of choice and game the day away. But if you’re Spencer Dinwiddie of the Brooklyn Nets, you’re rewatching your old highlights on YouTube. There’s no shame in that.
After all, Dinwiddie was enjoying a career year this season averaging 20.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per contest. If there’s a threshold you have to meet to warrant watching yourself hoop, he’s eclipsed it.
When Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert went down with injuries and the Nets were sitting at 4-7 without much hope, Dinwiddie commanded the ship away from obstreperous waters and back into the clear. For his efforts he almost garnered an All-Star selection for the first time in his career; he really came into his own.
He strung together some memorable performances in what was a rather underwhelming campaign. His worth to the team as a backup point guard that can elevate his play if Irving were to miss time is undeniable.
Of those aforementioned memorable performances, let’s zone in one three in particular and rank them accordingly.
