Breakout Scoring Season for Corey Brewer?
If Corey Brewer is going to average 20 points a game, as he has through the preseason so far, then we can probably just pencil in the Nuggets for the NBA Finals right now. History shows there will be a regression to the mean for Brewer’s career scoring number, however, which is 8.9 entering his sixth NBA season.
Then again, who knows? Maybe Brewer is just unpredictable enough to have a breakout scoring season. Granted, the games are not counting yet, but Brewer is off to a great start, with 40 points through two Nuggets victories.
“I love him, and I think he’s very important to our basketball team,” (coach George) Karl said.
