Lakers’ Corey Brewer was averaging less than three points a game with a total of 21 points over his last 11 before playing his former Rocket team on Wednesday. In his return to H-Town, he came off the bench and scored a season-high 21 points on 7-of-9 shooting. He also had a season-high 5 boards and 3 steals in the upset victory that ended the Rockets 14-game winning streak.
“It might have been sleeping in my own bed for sure. It’s always good to come back to Houston and I love playing here.” Said Brewer, who was traded to the Lakers last season in a deal for Lou Williams.
He really does, especially when he’s not playing for them. Back in 2014, as a member of the TWolves, Brewer scored a career-high 51 points against them.
A year later, he was a member of the Rockets, where he averaged career-lows in points but occasionally had flashes of offensive brilliance. My favorite flash might be the time he scored 17 straight points for them against the Blazers.
He also had this running three to force OT, also against the Blazers.
