THE STORY: Game Preview
The Nets predictably dropped another game to the Wizards on Saturday night. A back-to- back after a devastating double overtime loss spelled disaster. I’ve really had it with the back-to-backs. I can’t remember a two-month stretch where the Nets played so many and it’s really hurting their on court production. You can just tell they’re tired at times. They’ll get a day of rest before facing the Cavaliers who are probably the worst team in the league.
Kind of amazing to consider just how badly this team is after losing LeBron, that run of four straight finals appearances and one win shouldn’t be overlooked. He dragged those teams there every season and the moment he leaves they fall apart completely. He’s something else. Anyway, the Cavs have a new interim head coach, no Kyle Korver, and four wins. Let’s get into it.

Will Spencer Dinwiddie continue to torture the Cavaliers? It could (and should!) be argued that Spencer Dinwiddie has ruined everything. He hit the game-winner against the Cavaliers, giving the Nets pick slightly worse odds that ended up mattering in a significant way. He also hit like nine other game-winners last year. Basically, he ruined the entire future of the franchise. Would’ve been rolling with DeAndre Ayton or Luka Doncic without him.
