Scott Brooks Rumors
Candace Buckner: #Wizards F Mike Scott, who didn’t play last game in Miami, didn’t sweat his DNP. Believes maybe matchups played a part in Scott Brooks’s decision. “That’s how the game goes. I’m a professional. I’m always ready to play. We won.”
Candace Buckner: Brooks’s closing thought on Jason Smith: “He’s one of the best teammates I’ve ever been around.” Wall has repeatedly said this, too. Personally, I don’t know if there are too many players, who have started games, to remain as graceful abt being benched as Jason Smith.
“When coach Scott Brooks trusted me to guard Kobe Bryant in 2010 in that playoff series that was a big moment for me because he trusted me and I felt like I worked my way up to that,” Kevin Durant said. “I got to guard James Harden one night, or I had to guard LeBron [James] for a whole series and stay out of foul trouble. That’s where I’ve grown at, and that’s from experience.”
