The Nets are off to a 3-5 start and are trying to get consecutive wins for the first time this season.
Brooklyn halted a three-game losing streak by getting a 120-119 overtime win over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday.
Spencer Dinwiddie scored all of his 25 points after halftime and came up with three clutch plays. He hit the game-tying three-pointer in regulation, the game-winning three-pointer with 7.1 seconds left in overtime and denied Blake Griffin's attempt at winning the game.
"That was the thing that made this win really big for us -- the losing streak," Dinwiddie said. "We're trying to be a good team and change the tide of Nets teams of the past. You've got to learn how to get out of a rut quickly."
Before Dinwiddie's clutch plays, the Nets dropped two close games to New Orleans and Golden State before getting blown out at New York on Monday. They held a 15-point lead in the first half before falling behind by 10 points in the second half. >> Read more
