Caris LeVert Hitting New Highs
We're taking a look at some notable statistics and rankings compiled by the Brooklyn Nets with our weekly Stat Survey presented by Infor.
With their last two games — both wins — decided by a total of five points, the Nets have played 37 clutch games, tied for sixth in the NBA. Clutch games are defined as games within five points in the final five minutes. They are 18-19 in those games. Spencer Dinwiddie is seventh in the NBA in clutch minutes (139) and clutch points (104).
Dinwiddie leads Brooklyn with a career-high 20.6 points per game. In 48 games as a starter — he’s come off the bench for 15 games — Dinwiddie is averaging 21.3 points and 7.3 assists. He is ninth in the NBA in drives per game (17.1) and ninth in drive points per game (10.5). Dinwiddie is 12th in the NBA in free throws per game (7.0) and 13th in free throws made per game (5.4). The only guards in the NBA averaging more free throw attempts per 36 minutes than Dinwiddie (8.1), are James Harden, Luka Doncic, and Trae Young. In going 14-of-15 from the line against Chicago on Sunday, Dinwiddie matched his career high for free throws made in a game.
Caris LeVert moved back into the starting lineup on Feb. 3, and in 16 games since is averaging 24.1 points, 5.3 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.7 steals in 33.1 minutes per game.

The stretch includes a career-high 51-point game in Boston and LeVert’s first career triple-double, last Friday against San Antonio.
