MarShon Brooks Continues To Shine In D-League, But Red Claws Fall


MarShon Brooks played his second game for the NBA Development League Maine Red Claws last night, and so far he continues to impress.

Brooks followed up his 27 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists debut by scoring 24 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, and notching 6 assists as the Main Red Claws fell to the Springfield Armor 98-90.

Brooks also recorded one steal and two blocked shots in an excellent all-around performance that saw him log 39:08 of playing time, second-most on the Red Claws.

I highly doubt MarShon’s D-League stint is going to improve his lot with the Boston Celtics very much.  Unless the Celts deal Jordan Crawford or Courtney Lee this season, Brooks is destined to be a bench warmer for a team like the Celtics, but there are plenty of teams out there who could use a shooting guard.  For example, how long can the New York Knicks live with guard J.R. Smith making taking 17 three-pointers in a game, or hoisting a bomb from behind the arc because he forgot the score of the game, like he did last night?

The more he plays like he has so far in the D-League, the better Brooks is going to look when teams start putting out their feelers for shooting guards.  As always, I will keep you informed!
