Over his last ten games, Briscoe has been averaging six points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.7 assists per game in 22.6 minutes off the bench per contest.
Beyond statistics, the former Wildcat has brought great toughness and intensity on the floor for the Magic, a much-needed asset for a team currently fighting for a spot in the playoffs at No. 9 in the Eastern Conference (30-36 overall).
Briscoe signed a four-year, $6 million contract last offseason, keeping the 6-foot-3 point guard in Orlando through the 2021-22 season.
