Brooklyn Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie Makes Twitter Explode With Skills Challenge Win
Dinwiddie lit social media on fire with his upset win of the Skills Challenge
Spencer Dinwiddie’s stunning rise continued with an unbelievable win in the 2018 Taco Skills Challenge on All-Star Saturday Night.
Ironically, Dinwiddie appeared to be on the way out of the competition in the first round as he needed a late rally to beat Sacramento Kings’ guard Buddy Hield. After sneaking past the initial round, it was smooth sailing for the fourth-year guard as he beat the Denver Nuggets’ Jamal Murray on the next round before knocking out Lauri Markkanen in the Final.
Dinwiddie’s journey to Brooklyn has been well-documented. He was traded away by the Detroit Pistons and eventually cut by the Chicago Bulls, before spending some time in the G League. He signed with Nets on Dec. 2016. He hasn’t looked back since and he introduced himself to a international audience on Saturday.

Spencer Dinwiddie was playing in the G League with the Windy City Bulls like 15 months ago. Now he's a standout performer for the Nets and just won the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.— Ridiculous Upside (@RidicUpside) February 18, 2018

Considering I didn't even know Spencer Dinwiddie was even here this weekend, so for him to win the Skills Challenge is probably a thing of note.— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) February 18, 2018
