Brooks accumulated 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 105-99 win over the Knicks.
Brooks followed up Monday's 19-point effort (on six-of-eight from the field) with another impressive performance. He has reached double figures in scoring in three of six games in January, though there was a scoreless showing mixed in there as well. With that being said, Brooks had been slumping in December and appeared to hit the rookie wall, posting double-digit points in just four of 14 appearances while going scoreless on three occasions that month.
Brooks collected 19 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes during Monday's game against the Bucks.
Andrew Harrison was a DNP-CD during Monday's game, and Brooks was given an unexpected workload. Brooks may shift back down on the depth chart at some point, however he seems to be developing well through 13 games this season, averaging 9.3 points and 4.4 rebounds.
Brooks supplied 19 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, and one steal in 28 minutes during Monday's 110-103 loss to the Bucks.
Brooks keeps exceeding expectations, and he matched his career highs in scoring, threes, and made free throws. Meanwhile, the newly healthy Ben McLemore (foot) struggled, committing three turnovers and three fouls in 12 minutes. For as long as McLemore and Wayne Selden (quad) remain limited or sidelined, Brooks figures to continue benefitting. Nevertheless, he seems to have made enough of an impact to stick in the rotation in a meaningful way even once the wing rotation returns to full strength.
Brooks will move into the starting five Saturday against the Clippers.
The rookie second-rounder has been a pleasant surprise for Memphis after a stellar college career at Oregon. The 21-year-old played a season-high 38 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Orlando, finishing with 12 points and four rebounds while hitting a pair of threes. For the season, Brooks is averaging 8.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
Brooks supplied 12 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt) and four rebounds in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 101-99 loss to the Magic.
Brooks finished with career highs in made threes and minutes while delivering his best scoring performance since the opener. The rookie has been a pleasant surprise thus far, but the already deep wing rotation will soon welcome back Wayne Selden (quad) and Ben McLemore (foot). As a result, Brooks is unlikely to keep averaging the 30 minutes per night he has seen through eight tilts.
