Dinwiddie Leads Balanced Nets to Easy 103-75 Win over Pistons

NEW YORK – Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie scored 19 points to lead his team to a 103-75 victory over the Detroit Pistons at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Monday night.

Dinwiddie led a list of seven Brooklyn players who score at least 11 points on a comfortable night for the home team, who led by eight points by the end of the first quarter.

They had extended that lead to 26 points by the end of the second quarter, turning the second half into a stroll for the Nets, who kept the Pistons from firing throughout the game.

Brooklyn guard Allen Crabbe posted a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds, while rookie Rodions Kurucs managed 13 points after making six out of eight field goals.

Nets forward Joe Harris and shooting guard Caris LeVer had 12 points apiece, while center Jarrett Allen and guard D’Angelo Russell added 11 each, as Brooklyn (36-33) secured its fourth consecutive win.

“Our compete level was high, everyone was active,” Russell, who led his team in assists with seven, told reporters in the locker room after the game.

“Deflections were heavy, everybody was getting deflections to lead to the break. I just thought it was really good,” he added.

Brooklyn’s win was largely built on its stout defense, which limited the visiting Pistons to just 75 points.

“You can see we’re bringing it to a whole other level in terms of the physicality,” Jarrett Allen said.

The Nets are sixth in the Eastern Conference, two wins ahead of Detroit in seventh.

The loss meant that the Pistons (34-32) broke their run of five victories in a row, their best sequence of the season so far.

Center Andre Drummond led his team’s lackluster scoring with a double-double of 13 points and 20 rebounds, while forward Blake Griffin could only add 10 points after completing just one of 10 field goal attempts.

Detroit had just a 28 percent shooting success rate, the lowest for an NBA team since the 2015 season.
