NDIANAPOLIS -- In his third year in the NBA, Brooklyn Nets guard Caris LeVert is showing he has the potential to be a big-time scorer.
LeVert scored a career-high 28 points against the New York Knicks on Friday, and that included the game-winner with one second left. He had previously tied his career-high with 27 points in a loss at Detroit in the Nets' season opener.
"He had a heck of game on both ends of the floor," Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said Friday. "Especially at the end, he made (Tim) Hardaway work for his shots. He was our leader (Friday night).

LeVert had the ball stripped from him late in Wednesday's 103-100 loss at Detroit. >> Read more
