NEW YORK (AP) With D'Angelo Russell sidelined indefinitely after knee surgery, Spencer Dinwiddie stepped up for the Brooklyn Nets.
Dinwiddie scored a career-high 25 points hours after Russell's operation, and the Nets beat the Utah Jazz 118-107 on Friday night.
"I think as a starter, and as a point guard in my position, you try to lead," Dinwiddie said. "I didn't do anything different because of the surgery. I'd like to think that we won for him though, because our hearts go out to him as our teammate and our brother."
