After Spencer Dinwiddie's big night against the Timberwolves on Wednesday, culminating in draining the winning bucket with 9.8 seconds left, fans have rushed to social media to wax lyrical about the 24-year-old.
On top of the clutch basket, Dinwiddie tied his career high in points with 26. He also notched nine assists. His teammates took notice of the work he put in this summer and believes he has earned the plaudits he's receiving.
"His attention to detail, his approach to the game really got him where he is," said Quincy Acy, via NetsDaily.com. "It's helped his confidence a lot, he's playing well, and he deserves everything he's getting right now. I love to see guys like that succeed. Guys that really work for it off the court and it's really showing."
Over the summer, Acy was injured. This gave the 27-year-old the opportunity to observe training through a different lens.
"I was hurt all summer so I got a good chance to watch everybody and watch their process and how they approached the game," said Quincy Acy, via NetsDaily.com. "Spencer was a guy that really approached the game the right way."
Dinwiddie is averaging 12.8 points and 6.5 assists, not bad for a player brought in on a ten-day contract last season.
"He eats right, we'd make fun of him because he'd have a whole plate full of asparagus or just some weird stuff," Acy said, laughing.
Whatever Dinwiddie is doing, it's working. He and the Nets are next in action Saturday against the Celtics at 6 p.m.
