The last few games have not been kind to Marshon Brooks. He's shooting a miserable 8-for-29 over the last three games, including his worst game, a 1-for-11 outing vs. Orlando on Friday night. Not only is his scoring down, but his defense was so bad Saturday that after several miscues, Avery Johnson pulled him.

Brooks says he remains confident and he's still the second highest rookie scorer behind Kyrie Irving, not bad for a pick at #25. In an interview last week, Brooks told Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld that he's pleased with his progress. "I just have to continue to get better every day and everything else will take care of itself. I would say the biggest surprise for me has just been the success I’ve had so quickly. That would be the main thing."
