Spencer Dinwiddie will be facing off against three quality guards in his bracket including LA Clippers gunner Lou Williams. Denver Nuggets rising start Jamal Murray, and the Utah Jazz’s rookie sensation Donovan Mitchell are the other guard participants. The Mayor’s first round opponent has yet to be determined.
