GIF: Let’s All Watch Nick Young Nod Off On Defense

NIck Young, Corey Brewer

Say what you want about Kobe Bryant and his shot-happy gunning, but he carries a lot of respect, so he expects his teammates to play their hearts out in order to keep pace. We doubt Nick Young would have gotten away with slouching through this defensive possession opposite Corey Brewer in last night’s 98-87 Lakers loss to the Rockets if Bryant hadn’t been sidelined with a torn rotator cuff.

Yesterday’s trade sending Corey Brewer from the Timberwolves to the Rockets included Houston’s brief hero from last year’s playoffs, Troy Daniels.

One local Houston station reporting the story used a NBA 2K15 screen grab rather than a real-life photo of Daniels in their segment. Read More »

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

Corey Brewer

Timberwolves wing Corey Brewer isn’t exactly a dominant scorer. He’s averaging 12.2 points in 32.2 minutes a night this season (he was at 11.7 PPG before his outburst) and he’s never averaged more than 13 PPG in his career. 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 »

Video: Thomas Robinson Obliterates Corey Brewer’s Dunk Attempt

Corey Brewer, Thomas Robinson

Trail Blazers forward Thomas Robinson has bounced around a bit since getting drafted No. 5 overall in 2012. He was drafted by the Kings, then traded to Houston in what looked like another Daryl Morey coup at the time. But Morey unloaded him to Portland in an effort to get far enough under the cap to sign Dwight Howard as a free agent.
