Alvin Gentry: Brown Showing Confidence
(Shannon) Brown has shot 50 percent or better in only three of 14 games this season but two of those have come in the past three games.
“I’ve been staying patient and taking advantage of the opportunity,” Brown said. “We definitely needed that win for our confidence and morale. It’s a different feeling around here.”
Coach Alvin Gentry has turned to Brown regularly to help him find his way in a new system. Brown’s 22.1 minutes per game ranks sixth on the team.
“It (Brown’s scoring) takes the pressure off Steve (Nash) to do every single thing,” Gentry said. “The thing I like about Shannon was that he did it with a lot of confidence and wasn’t afraid.”
