Corey Brewer Drops 51 On The Rockets Including A Half-Court Heave

Corey Brewer

Timberwolves wing Corey Brewer isn’t exactly a dominant scorer.

That’s what made his 51-point performance against the Rockets on Friday night so surprising and impressive. Like Terrence Ross before him, Brewer’s 51-point game snuck up on everyone. But unlike Ross, the former Gator was dropping buckets at the rim, not just long-range bombs, going 19-for-30 from the floor with most of his field goals in the restricted area. Read More »

Corey Brewer, Thomas Robinson

Trail Blazers forward Thomas Robinson has bounced around a bit since getting drafted No. 5 overall in 2012.
