Troy Brown Jr. scored 17 points (5-16 FG, 2-5 3PT, 5-6 FT) while collecting eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, and one block across 34 minutes in a victory of the Boston Celtics on Thursday.
Brown Jr. played well in Orlando and may have a chance at starting next season at SF for the Wizards and, at worst, take over the sixth man role. He finishes his second season averaging a productive 10.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists on 44% shooting from the field and 33% from three-point range.
Troy Brown Jr. got the start at point guard for the injured Shabazz Napier Tuesday, but struggled in 30 minutes of action. He scored nine points on 3-of-15 shooting, with six boards, three assists, and one turnover in a 126-113 loss to the Bucks.
Brown has been really good for the Wizards since play resumed, but just couldn't get it going in this one, shooting just 20 percent and dishing out just three assists across 30 minutes. The Wizards play one more game Thursday against the Celtics, which should give the second-year man out of Oregon an opportunity to make up for his performance Tuesday.
G/F Troy Brown Jr. will be the starting point guard for the Wizards against the Bucks on Tuesday.
Ish Smith has been the primary ball-handler for the Wizards so far in the Bubble, mainly due to him outplaying Shabazz Napier. With Napier out with an ankle injury, Wizards head coach Scott Brooks is going to shake up the lineup and bring Ish Smith off the bench, giving Brown Jr. a shot at leading the offense. Good news for anyone starting him in DFS tonight, as this may create more opportunities to contribute in the assists category. Brown Jr.'s arrow is trending up for Tuesday's slate.
Troy Brown Jr. had another solid all-around performance in Sunday’s 121-103 loss to the Thunder, scoring 12 points (5-14 FG, 2-7 3PT) with eight rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two turnovers.
Brown has been extremely consistent for the Wizards since play resumed. In his last five games, he’s averaging 16.2 points, 8.6 boards, and 5.8 assists per game. He’ll look to keep it going Tuesday in a very tough matchup against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks.
Troy Brown Jr. produced his sixth double-double on Friday, scoring 20 points (6-16 FG, 5-5 FT) along with snatching a team-high ten rebounds, as well as five assists, two steals, and three three-pointers across 39 minutes in a loss to the Pelicans.
Brown Jr. hit double-figures for the fifth consecutive game, boosting his scoring average in the bubble from 10.3 ppg (pre-COVID) to 16.8 ppg in Orlando. He's been upping his play lately, attacking the glass and making the most of his increased playing time G Bradley Beal sidelined until next season. Depending on the opponent, Brown Jr. could be a sneaky value play as long as he continues to shoot a high volume of field-goal attempts while filling the stat sheet across categories.
