Dinwiddie paced Brooklyn with 23 points on 10-of-24 shooting including 1-of-5 from 3-point range plus 2-of-2 at the free throw line. He also contributed nine assists and three blocked shots.

Celtics hold off Kings

NBA Betting Trends
The Nets are 0-6 ATS in their last six games versus the Atlantic Division. Brookyln is 2-6 ATS in its last eight Wednesday games.
The Celtics are 4-1-2 ATS in their last seven games versus the Eastern Conference. Boston is 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings.
Brooklyn has taken advantage of a pretty soft schedule as Kyrie Irving remains out with a shoulder injury, but that ends here. Boston is likely to have Kemba Walker back tonight after he missed time following a scary injury. With the court leader back on the floor, this one could become one-sided quickly as the Nets can only go as far as Dinwiddie takes them. Considering the Celtics' backcourt defense is outstanding, it might be difficult for Dinwiddie to have his usual output. Take the hosts in this spot.
