If we’ve learned one thing about Isaiah Briscoe in the past few years, it’s that he’s not afraid to speak his mind to reporters. When asked about his teammate Malik Monk’s 20-point performance in the wake of two bad games, Briscoe reminded reporters of something that we often forget: Monk is human.
“He’s just out there playing every game, trying to win. He’s right here, ask him,” Briscoe said as Monk sat down next to him. “They keep saying you’re in a slump.”
“What kind of slump?” Monk asked.
“That’s what I’m saying,” Briscoe said.
“I’m not in a slump.”
“Then they said you had a bad game yesterday and then you came out hot today,” Briscoe continued. “There’s nothing unusual about that. You have games like that. It happens. He’s not perfect. He’s human.”
After some of the stuff he’s shown us this season, you can understand why we sometimes forget, Isaiah.
