MarShon Brooks Hopeful for More Minutes
MarShon Brooks never got to sniff the spectacle of the playoffs during his rookie campaign a season ago, given the Nets’ 22-44 record and last-place finish in the Atlantic Division.
Two games into the Nets’ Eastern Conference first-round playoff matchup with the Bulls, he’s still not quite certain what that postseason scent actually smells like.
Although Brooks has played in both games, his stint in the opener came when the outcome was clearly decided, and he got a quick hook after a brief 1:38 of fourth-quarter duty in Game 2 Monday. He’s been mostly out of the rotation down the stretch of the season, biding his time until interim coach P.J. Carlesimo signals for him.
“If I get the chance, yeah, I feel like I can help a little bit,” he said. “But the situation I’m in, I’m just going to wait my turn, and just try to wait patiently and be ready.”
