Brown ended with 23 points (10-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two steals and one assist in 35 minutes during Monday's 124-113 victory over the Spurs. Brown has been thriving of late with Kevin Durant (hamstring) riding the pine. Brown has certainly moved into the standard-league conversation and there should probably be a spot in most leagues for the former Piston. As soon as Durant returns, Brown's role is likely to regress, but until then, throw him on the end of your bench and enjoy the ride.
Brown recorded 12 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and three assists across 32 minutes in Saturday's 115-98 loss to the Mavericks. Although multiple elites were missing from Brooklyn's starting lineup, Brown's role remained largely unchanged in the loss. While playing alongside three All-Stars, he has capably supported them with multiple-category production throughout the season.
Brown compiled 14 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals across 26 minutes Thursday in the Nets' 129-92 win over the Magic. Brown will likely be one of several Nets supporting players to lose out on playing time when Kevin Durant (hamstring) returns, but he's been a key cog in coach Steve Nash's rotation during the star's absence. While Durant has been sidelined for nine of the past 10 games, Brown has averaged 10.5 points (on 57.5 percent shooting from the field), 4.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.4 steals in 24.5 minutes.
Brown had 29 points (11-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 127-118 win over the Kings. It's the first time this season the 24-year-old scored at least 20 points, and he did so with only 13 shot attempts. Brown shouldn't be expected to regularly score in double figures, but he's carved out a solid role in Brooklyn's rotation this season. Expect his production to take a hit once Kevin Durant (hamstring) returns, however.
Brown recorded 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, four steals and two assists across 34 minutes Sunday in a 112-108 away win over the Clippers. Brown was two rebounds short of a double-double, but his four steals and 34 minutes played were both season highs. He mostly remains an inadequate fantasy option due to Brooklyn's "Big Three" (Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden) taking up usage on offense. However, Brown's average of 2.3 steals (across his past four games) may be serviceable for those needing boosts in defensive attributes.
