Brown finished with 23 points (9-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt), two boards, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes of a 126-113 win against the Wizards on Tuesday. Brown matched a career best by sinking five threes in the game. With a handful of Bucks regulars sitting out, the bench had a chance to step up and take the reigns. Brown took over the role of scorer, leading his team in attempts in the contest. He's still fighting for every minute on the floor when Milwaukee has all its options available, but Brown has proven he capable when he gets the chance. Milwaukee plays Memphis on Thursday.
Brown collected 16 points (6-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and a block in 36 minutes during the Bucks' 109-95 loss to the Nuggets on Monday. Brown had a nasty dunk on Michael Porter Jr. for two of his 11 first-half points -- a factor in the competitive 62-54 halftime score. Still, the Bucks were playing without their top four leading scorers, so this performance can't be considered any sort of breakout for Brown.
Brown will start Monday's game against the Nuggets, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports. Brown will get a chance to run with the first unit Monday evening as the Bucks have decided to shake up their starting five due to a handful of injuries. This marks Brown's first start of the 2019-20 campaign.
Brown supplied zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3PT), one rebound and one assist across three minutes Tuesday in the Bucks' 120-108 win over the Pelicans. Brown checked into the game with three minutes remaining in the third quarter and the Bucks leading by 17, but he was back on the bench for the game's final 12 minutes while New Orleans kept things reasonably competitive. At this stage, Brown looks to be firmly behind Khris Middleton, Wesley Matthews, Donte DiVincenzo, Pat Connaughton and Kyle Korver in the pecking order at the two wing spots.
Brown (illness) is no longer listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against Washington. Brown sat out of Saturday's matchup with the Hornets due to illness, but it appears he's back at full strength heading into Tuesday's clash. He's struggled to see consistent minutes even when healthy of late, averaging just 10 minutes over his last five games.
