J.T. Brown has three goals in five games since the All-Star break.

Brown and some of his teammates went to Mexico during the break and since he's been back, he's been lighting the lamp with more regularity.

Fantasy GMs shouldn't rush to add him off the waiver wire, but it's nice to see a grinding forward get rewarded. "He deserves everything he's getting," coach Jon Cooper said. "You can't ask for more effort and tenacity that kid is giving us now. It's paying off by the points he's getting for us. They're all richly deserved. That kid has been working his tail off."
