It looks like the Nets will have to deal with the cards given to them as Kyrie Irving is rumored to have season-ending shoulder surgery. No KD, no Kyrie – the Nets are getting All-Star numbers from Spencer Dinwiddie but he needs other players to step up their game to get more wins this season. Their last loss came from Toronto where they lost by 19 points. Dinwiddie had 23 points and seven rebounds while Joe Harris produced 18 points and five assists. Other than that, they had Garrett Temple with 12 points and Taurean Prince with 10. DeAndre Jordan is still doing limited playing time. with six points, eight rebounds and four blocks in 18 minutes. For them to get across Orlando, they need other Nets players to be involved.

Nikola Vucevic is starting to shake off the rust after having an injury just this December. He provided 22 points and 13 points against the Jazz but his team lost the game. Aaron Gordon had 11 points and 12 rebounds and Terrence Ross led the team in scoring with 24 points. But the guards were mostly absent in this game as the team’s top scorer had only 9 points and Markelle Fultz did 6 while being the starting point guard. They got locked down by the Jazz defense but they need them to limit Dinwiddie and Harris when they face them in this game.
