Caris LeVert once again finds his name side-by-side with the greatest Net of all time, Jason Kidd.

Caris LeVert joins elite company with Game 2 performance vs. Raptors — Nets Wire

Although Brooklyn couldn’t pull off the win in Game 2 against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday, multiple Nets managed to stuff the stat sheet in the 104-99 loss.

While Garrett Temple led the Nets in scoring with 21 points, three of his Brooklyn teammates — Joe Harris, Jarrett Allen and Caris LeVert — logged double-doubles.

Not only did Joe Harris and Jarrett Allen both finish with double-doubles, but they also finished with the same number of points (14) and rebounds (15) as one another.

LeVert achieved his double-double by complimenting his 16-point night with 11 assists. He also had a double-double in Brooklyn’s Game 1 loss on Monday, joining some elite company in the process.

By logging another double-double on Wednesday, LeVert once again finds himself among a small number of players who’ve worn a Nets uniform.

LeVert is only the fourth Nets player to ever log a double-double in consecutive playoff games. Michael Ray Richardson, Jason Kidd and Deron Williams are the only others who have done so.
