Dinwiddie scored 24 points and added six assists in a 109-89 victory. The Nets snapped a two-game losing skid and improved to 14-12 on the season.
The 26-year-old out of the University of Colorado, Boulder has been sensational in the starting point guard role since Kyrie Irving was forced from the lineup with a shoulder impingement.
Dinwiddie was averaging 20.9 points, 6.2 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game entering play on Sunday, and he was previously named the Eastern Conference Payer of the Week. He recently spoke with Steve Serby of the New York Post about feeling “disrespected:”
Q: Why do you think you’ve been disrespected?
A: When I was a kid, they used to say like my nonchalant attitude is because I was from Cali, Cali makes you soft, like you hear that as a basketball player. Then, “He’s too small,” then, “He’s not strong enough,” then “not athletic enough,” then it’s, “Well, he hurt his knee.” … It’s just always something, and at every point in time and every turn, obviously I’ve been able and fortunate to prove people wrong. … I’m sitting here like, “But if I’m winning in practice, if I was that bad, then stop me. If I’m not good, then show me.” But if you can’t show me that I’m not good, then why the f— would I believe that?
It was Dinwiddie doing all the disrespecting on Sunday. That dunk is right up there with the best posters of the season so far, and it sent Nets players off the bench in amazement.
Dinwiddie is putting the whole league on notice this year.
