The Nets’ DNA is to put up 3-pointers, and apparently they’re going to do it at a record pace. The Nets hit a season-high 17 3-pointers in their 112-107 win over the Cavaliers Wednesday night, shooting a team-record 46. “I think they just go out there and play. They let it fly,” Cleveland center Kevin Love said. “They drive the ball, drive-and-kick and then just play up-tempo. I think they want to score the basketball. They use it as a weapon and they showed that [Wednesday] night.” Even without point guards D’Angelo Russell, who is day-to-day with a sprained knee, and Jeremy Lin, who ruptured his patella tendon and is out for the season, Spencer Dinwiddie hit 4-of-8 from deep and Allen Crabbe shook off a slow start to finish 4-of-10. “[They said] just keep shooting. Shooters shoot,” Crabbe said. “They kept telling me the next one is going to go in. You saw what happened tonight. After the first one went in you have a little more confidence.” The Nets improved to 3-0 at home this season. It marked their first 3-0 start at home since 2002-03.
