MarShon Brooks has quieted down since All-Star break
In the 15 games since the All-Star break, Brooks is averaging 9.8 points per game while shooting 40.9 percent from the field and 26.5 percent from 3-point range. But the thing that has Brooks more frustrated than anything else is when he doesn’t take a shot he knows that he should.
“Obviously I’d like to make it every shot I shoot, but when I get to second-guessing, that’s when I start making mistakes,” he said. “Little mistakes where I should have shot the first shot, and it’s the better shot for the team.”
Brooks shrugged off any suggestion he has hit the “rookie wall,” saying he just sees that as an excuse.
