Title Mavs tracker: Bummer for Corey Brewer
Corey Brewer: The man who will always be remembered in Dallas for being the surprising spark of the Game 1 comeback against the Lakers had a miserable postseason in a much larger role for the Nuggets.
Brewer went 1-for-8 during his two-point performance in the Nuggets’ series-ending Game 6 loss to the Warriors, dropping his field goal percentage to 30.9 for this postseason.
The Nuggets needed Brewer, who averaged 12.1 points per game off the bench this season, to carry more of the offensive burden after starting small forward Danilo Gallinari’s season-ending knee injury. But Brewer slumped during the playoffs and tried to shoot his way out of it to no avail. He averaged 10.8 points in the series, but he was 21-of-68 from the floor and 9-of-36 from 3-point range.
Golden State star Stephen Curry is the only player to attempt more 3-pointers than Brewer this postseason.
