The Nets still put six scorers in double-figures, led by Spencer Dinwiddie (team-high 24 points) and Joe Harris (22 points), both of whom shrugged off foul trouble to make key plays. “I’m not Kyrie: He’s going to continue to lead this team and do a great job,” Dinwiddie said. “The only focus really was winning. So I just tried to gauge what needed to be done to win the game. I’m not going to be Kyrie. Kyrie might win MVP this year.”
Given his early travels around the NBA, Harris is uniquely equipped to describe what happens on various team planes while journeying from city to city for games. “Honestly, the team plane you are either 1) watching a tv show or movie, 2) sleeping or 3) gambling,” he said. “My rookie year, I actually did none of those. I counted Kendrick Perkins’ winnings for him. They used to call me ‘The Accountant.'” Harris has previously detailed the “duffel bag” of cash Perkins would win on team flights, and the longtime NBA center routinely cut in his accountant on those winnings.
And with Brooklyn having put its controversial China trip behind it, now comes the hard part — doing the same with the lingering aftereffects. Jet lag. Fatigue. And the invariable slow start. “The biggest challenge is obviously the travel portion of it. There’s not a lot you can do to get around it,” Joe Harris told The Post. “No matter how you travel, it’s still a 15-hour flight and it’s still a 12-hour time difference. You try and sleep as much as you can on the plane, hydrate as much as possible, try and get your body to adapt as quick as it can.
