The Nets are coming from a loss against Milwaukee Bucks. Kyrie Irving looks like he is still shaking off some rust as he finished with 17 points, six assists, four steals on a six-for-fifteen shooting. Spencer Dinwiddie also had a bad game shooting only 25% from the field as he had 11 points. Taurean Prince also didn’t shoot well but he managed to finish with 13 points while Jarret Allen scored only five points but he made it up with ten boards. The team got a lift form the bench from Nicholas Claxton who had 14 points and six rebounds and Timothe Luwalu-Cabarrot chipping in with 10. With the return of Kyrie Irving, this team will run with him and he should dictate the tempo.
