“I’m always trying to make the right play,” Dinwiddie said. “I feel like my heart is in the right place, so I’m not hesitating from that standpoint. I feel like people who hesitate in the clutch or in the fourth quarter in general, it’s because they aren’t trusting of something.”
Dinwiddie also explained that other players may not trust the work they put in, second guess their shot selection or lose confidence after turning the ball over, which he says “I ain’t got none of that.”
With Dinwiddie’s ability to run the pick-and-roll or shift gears while driving downhill and getting creative with his craftiness around the rim, he seems to know exactly what he wants to do at the right time.
Dinwiddie leads the Wizards in fourth-quarter scoring with 5.4 points on average with shooting percentages of nearly 51 percent from the field including 42.1 percent from three. Additionally, Dinwiddie finds himself among the league leaders in clutch points per game.
Because of Dinwiddie’s confidence to take over when he needs to, and his teammates’ belief in him, the Wizards find themselves in a position to be one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference this season.
