Spencer Dinwiddie Humble About Big Win Against Blazers

Larry Stansbury

On Friday, the Nets played against the Portland Trail Blazers for their first five-game road trip and had a 119-115 win.

Kyrie Irving scored more than 20 points, beating Richard Jefferson’s record of eight games. Jefferson set this record in the 2007 season. With Irving’s performance, he’s the MVP player to score this record since the Nets moved to Brooklyn. 

Even though Kyrie Irving had a great performance, it was Spencer Dinwiddie who stepped up his game, outscoring Irving with 34 points. Dinwiddie finished with five points on his high career of 39 points, which in December of last season, he scored playing against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Dinwiddie had five rebounds and four assists. After the win, the point guard credited his teammates and continues to make the same performance for the future games. 

“My teammates just got me the rock and I was fortunate enough to make some shots,” Dinwiddie said to Yes Network. “You know I don’t care dude. I ain’t cared for a long time. It don’t matter bro, I go out there and play. I’m just kind of me.”
